No steering feel, no feedback into the controls at all, too much unsprung weight lets sharp bumps come crashing through the suspension, rubber mounted handlebars flex if you try to toss the bike around and suck all the fell from the bike. No power for passing, you have to clang down two gears on the six speed to get around traffic, and even then passes take planning compared to what I am accustomed too. It reminded me very much of an old air cooled VW Combi. The only thing they are good for is easing down a big flat boring freeway. Plenty of bikes will do that part as well as any Harley and leave the Harley like a bad habit on any other kid of road. Kludge. I've ridden them and know.

ITs like banging a broad with 6 kids, no enjoyment, no feeling just go through the motions to get where you want to go.

You are missing something. The tomato is native only to the Americas and therefore was not present in Europe in any form until it was brought there from the Americas. The tomato and spaghetti noodles didn't get together until the 1800's by most accounts.
Before the tomato, who knows? Garlic and olive oil most likely graced spaghetti since recipes for garlic and olive oil pesto date as far back as written history. The noodles themselves? Probably of African origin by way of Sicily and even to this day the best spaghetti noodles are made from an African strain of wheat.

This was done and it saved the European wine industry.

No, not the same. Chinese wheat is very different from the African strain used in good quality Spaghetti. Northern Chinese wheat is absolutely white. You can tell a properly made Northern Chinese noodle or dumpling shell from an American one by the color. It it has even a hint of gold in the dough, it is not good Chinese wheat. Then again, Chinese wheat would not make very good pasta, wrong taste and consistency. The pasta the Italians make probably came from Africa when the Africans invaded and colonized Sicily for a century.

Well DAMN!

I've got an airhead dresser and an older Cadillac, OH wait, I like big girls too, even if they have kids!

I must be the ANTILUX/ANTIPHILTHY, but don't worry, I'll be going back to the bowls of the earth and leaving you guys alone now.

They owe you a debt of gratitude bigjames, for without the likes of you and others they could not claim superiority.
