The Vincent Obsession.

Vincent, the name immediately evokes strong feelings in any motorcyclist who is worth his salt. The only american v-twin that even comes close to being as beautiful as a Vincent v-twin is the knucklehead, and  a knucklehead just isn't capable of producing the same kind of horsepower. The fact that it is,to this day, common to see a Vincent screaming along the Bonneville salt flats on its way to another record, is a testament to the engineering that went into these motors. The British hold all their mechanical achievements in the highest esteem and never hesitate to boast about shit they have done right, I hate them for this, but, in this one case, they are absolutely right.
