Right said on Neal's point, There are reasons why H-D's are so popular, not nessecarily based on technological surpremacy,this is different from sport bikes. Ride what gives you grins! I think there are some surprises coming from H-D in the near future and I think they will become more competitive on the racing circuit. Ducati is still running their "farm machine" technology, they just found thier groove. Relax and enjoy the ride.
I did not mean that Ducati literally made farm machinery, I meant that the technology is still fudamentally a throwback to earlier times. V twin configuration goes back to the infancy of the motorcycle, and it's cool that it still works so well. The Japanese are not ignoring the allure on the V twin and are spending lots of money to be in that market.
Vincents are beautiful, BTW.
