I have wider gaps between my teeth than what is between that front fender and tire.

I just can't get over how grown men, supposedly mature and knowledgeable, could possibly find such an ugly set of examples of supposed "motorcycles" so appealing.

It has to be the suppressed desire for the "Porsche" opposed engine. The Goose was an Italian effort to do the same with a Ducati engine "opposed V-Twin" As if that could ever be sexy.

And finally, how in the world, "real" men could think of "shaft drive" as a motorcycle part beats me. Neither the Germans nor the Italians
could explain any advantage, they just couldn't make chains.

I'm impressed, HAP. You spelled Porsche right.

No. I meant "symmetry." I like that you could just about cut the motorcycle in half lengthwise and both halves would be almost mirroe images of each other. In other words the bike is symmetrical about the center line. This is the same reason that I like vertical twins, BMW's and some Guzzies

That is one of the ugliest engines of all time. It actually looks like it belongs on a industrial air compressor, but for some reason the bike is customized in such a way that it presents the ugly lump in the most positive light possible.
