Sorry lad, most of the GPTB was riding inline fours while you were still s******g your knee-britches....

You forget, apprenticeship in the GPTB started in about 1965 or so, you were still a wet spot on your dads sheets when we started riding

You should be happy that you don't live in Texas, considering that Texas has the largest, per capita, population of serial killers in the nation. And, oddly enough, the most finalists in the Miss America Pageant, over the years????



Now, there's a Thesis that would get some play...

Since I have owned V-fours, vertical twins, singles, inline fours, inline sixes, horizontally opposed sixes, and V-twins, I'd say my very favorite was the inline six of the CBX. Nothing matched the power, sound and visual appeal of that motor. I wish Honda would have stuck with that bike to make it what it could have been.

I always liked those, an acquaintance of mine bought a new on in 1980 when I had my Kawasaki 750 twin. A real nice bike.

I looked for a used one in the early ninetys but I found an '84 V65 Sabre w/ 7k miles for $1400 so I bought it instead. Turned out to be a pretty fun bike.

kpail never fails to amaze me, the guy don't have a ***** clue.

Default Re: David Ogilvy Would be Proud

Actually, ever since reading the piece, IÂ’ve sorta been trying to come up with a parallel to OgilvyÂ’s "Clock in the Rolls Royce" campaign, for the MV, myself.



Trouble is, the whole "Art meets Engineering" thing has been done to death.



What I keep coming back to though, is Leo Fender (a man who actually never played the guitar) sitting down in SoCal back in the early 50s, and drawing up what became the most popular, and versatile, electric-guitar of all time, the Stratocaster.



Hey, it's all jerding off, anyway. I ain't done ad-work for years. Still, it is sorta fun.

IÂ’m not trying to start anything here; itÂ’s just that I think Honda did about as much as they could, with their inline six.



I mean, with all the pipes coming out of that motor, it looked like it should be playing in church, rather than in traffic.



And, youÂ’ve got to admit that today; the CBX frame would have a hard time passing muster at the Consumer Protection Agency, as a swing-set.



As for me, I wish Honda had kept using the V-65, as a sportbike engine. In the end, though, Honda, and history, has proved the inline four to be a pretty good engine; even if some of us donÂ’t exactly love it.
