    First of all, you can't even begin to discuss motorcycles, discounting the sex appeal factor. Sex is the primary reason you bought your first motorcycle (or else you were dead already, or a liar)... you either bought it to get sex, or in lieu of getting sex...

    There's a reason British motorcycle industry was once held as the world standard, that being, when they worked properly, those bikes had no peer. While the metallurgy may have been less than perfect, the machining may have been (by the mid seventies... hell, by the mid 50s) sub-standard, and the basic engineering of the engines may have been decades out of date... you can't argue with the fact that Triumphs were winning races well into the 1970s.

    Read, friend... I never once said Triumph, BSA, Norton made a better machine, nor did I say they were less expensive. Look at it this way... my 4D Maglite doesn't put out better light when I'm camping, than my made in China Ray-O-vac... but it certainly feels a lot better in my hand, and when discussing something which elicits as much emotional appeal as a motorcycle, sometimes how it feels in my hand is enough (ok, yeah... spare me that bit of commentary... how it feels in my hand...

    Sex appeal or not....

    The quality of the bikes, most of their parts and damned sure the machining couldn't keep them afloat once they were solidly challenged by the far superior engineered, manfactured and simply viable road going production machines brought to the usa by the very crafty and astute japanese

    at least your backing away from your assertion of superior quality

    Sex appeal .... hands down the brit iron had that in spades over the jap stuff.

    Btw.... Harley flatheads still win racea today.... does that make them or their parts superior to vintage jap bikes that still win races?

    Probably not as they are quite crude and many never find them sexy either.
