Ride Japanese, dream about European...
Just being physically challenged (+money) won't allow me to have an Aprillia.
When Aprillia comes out with RSV400 (as there's been a rumor for years), I'll seriously think about it.
Still my dream bike's RS250.

It's like they say, everyone wants a bike in public, but when the lights are out, and it's just the two of you, it's got to be Italian.

I like both. As far as aftermarket parts, take a look at Ducati's accessory catalog, it puts even HD to shame!
Everything from carbon fiber to engine performance to suspension to brakes, it's all there, not to mention the bazillion aftermarket Ducati specialty mfr's.

There's something about owning either a Ducati or Triumph that's not the same as a Japanese bike. Can't really explain it, and it doesn't apply to everyone.
I guess a way to try to explain it in car tems would be if you own a Jeep;
Most people like them, but a lot of people wouldn't own them, to quote a popular Jeep saying:
"It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand."

Euro's are freakin awesome just not as easy as the Japs to maintain though. Lean a Duck and you will be converted. I just wish my wallet could handle one

HONDA....Yes Im a Honda Guy. I eat, sleep, and dream Honda. I believe in Honda. And yes, if you cut me I bleed HONDA Red. Im a fan of not only Honda street bikes, dirt bikes, but honda cars as well. I live Honda. One might say that Im a Honda Freak. If I was given a chance to own any bike in the world for Free. It would be the new 1000RR in Blue/Yellow, and that is by far my favorite bike. Its my favorite bike even over all the exoctic euro bike with their high price tags. I'd still take the 1000RR over all of them any day.

in Short: Japanese

Dude, you are going to have to put the red bull down and step away. Just breathe...:icon_bigg

I was a honda guy all of my life, but as I got older I started to appreciate different things. Thus the speed triple. And hopefully soon the Aprilia.

LOL...yeah Im wound UP pretty tight right now. Working 2 jobs, and in the middle of moving from Vegas to Houston. So I don't sleep much, and I get a little crazy. And its not that I have a one Track Mind, I can appreciate other things. Its just Honda has always been good to me.

In short: Japanese over Euro...I think European bikes are over rated. Just because they cost more, doesn't make them better. IMO
