I fell in love with the sound watching Ducati's at the track. I4 sound doesn't do it for me.

Last 3 bikes have been V twins. From Yamaha and Suzuki. Nice linear power delivery.

Gotta admit - its an H-D or nothing.
The TL sounds incredible, but the RC51 is a better bike in every other tangible and intangible category.

Had Sportsters and Ducatis in the past (I don't like big HDs), and just find the Ducati to be way more... everything. But my favorite V-twin is the V-Rod. Too bad it's been plugged into a mediocre chasis.

Hell...lately I've been having sinful thoughts about several HDs.

I've had a couple of v twins (Harley Electra Glide and a V Strom). Had a v four (Honda ST1300). Had an opposed twin (BMW RT1200). Had an inline four (C-14).

I will NEVER buy / ride an in line four again. I can't stand high frequency vibes. Haven't owned or ridden a triple, so I can't say anything about those. But, out of the bikes I have owned or ridden, the v four was the smoothest. However, I can't see myself on anything other than a v twin from here on out. Love my Electra Glide and I loved my RT. If the RT didn't have the habit of stranding me hundreds of miles from home (3 times in the first 7,000 miles of ownership), I'd still have it.

To me, a v twin is what a motorcycle should have. Say what you want about Harleys, but they look like a motorcycle should look. Even the opposed twin of the BMW looks like how I think a bike should look. Air cooled is even better !

I've always had a thing for v-twins, they're just extremely usable in everyday riding and they don't get buzzy the way a lot of inline 4's do. I just realized that all the bikes I currently own are v-twins (XB12, SV650, PC800). I love always having the power I want without needing to run the bike up to five digits on the tach. I've owned one V-4 and it was a lot of fun too, but inline 4s just don't do it for me.... I do see myself with a Triumph Triple at some point as I think they would be a lot of fun.
