If it was 1962, I'd think you were talking about Honda and the Japanese instead of Kymco and the Chinese. THe more things change, the more they stay the same.

Just give me matte black and call it a day.
Find a GoldWing owner, and they will be the first to tell you that chrome plated plastic ain't cheap!

They can have it, I'm not some rabid xenophobic protectionist but come on now, they're not going to do it on my coin if I can help it......
...Kymco is Taiwan based, not mainland. A world of difference as far as quality goes. Not too long ago Taiwan's GNP was greater than Red China's. I've been there a couple of times. Great people. Not nearly as xenophobic as the Red Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Phillippinos... well insert any Asian country.
