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.
Bo, I am hoping maybe you can help me with something. For the life of me I can not understand how any one can find beauty and function in one opposed V-Twin/shaft drive and hold another in such disdain.
The CX is but a Japanese Honda copy of the much loved (on this site) Italian Goose. Having ridden both and owned a Goose I have to say the Japanese build a much better bike. I looked up English couriers and some reported upwards of 300,000 miles on the CX in nasty conditions. I think I recall you did a bit of courier work yourself and will ask what motorcycle you used?
As for the ugly part heaped upon the CX, any one who finds beauty in a Goose should not cast stones.
