At this point I am leaning heavily towards the Triumph as I believe the Aprilia may be a better bike for sport riding, but it is going to be overkill for me basically a world championship frame/engine with some fairings removed and straight bars. The Triumph engine will also be the new Moto GP Moto2 engine so the tamed down R might be better for city riding.
The Ducati has the best torque down low for city riding, the same excellent brakes from the Triumph and an okay dash, but the suspension seems to be what should be offered on a much cheaper bike, so I guess I will have to see how it feels.
They lost me at "Jack Sparrow impersonator"...
I'm listening to single tracks by Raphael Ravenscroft.
I have been very impressed by "Forgiveness", the work of the choir is impressive with only a few notes of saxophone merging with the choir. Beautiful, simply beautiful and magical.
If you have 5 minutes to listen to this song ... I recommend it.
