Zinging is 10 grand, now you are going somewhere.
That has nothing to do with the character of the engine.

I didn't know it's snowing in the US already.

If not, what's up with the bench racing and cock-comparing?

It's raining here. Cagers in Dallas can't drive in the best conditions, let alone rain.

No. I like all bikes. I have owned a harley before, had a Kawasaki concours for a while, right now I'm on a honda shadow. There's just not much in common between the two basic engine types. Comparing one to the other to say one is better is kinda crazy.
