So, there's nothing that you could consider "cool" that doesn't make you envious or that you'd want to own?

There's no other things in life, that you think are cool that don't make you envious or want to own it / them?

Just seems quite narrow, really - there's plenty of things I think are cool that don't make me want to crave or own them.

some thing is cool if the design is different, people want & pleasing to the eye.

I wouldn't completely define that as cool myself

I wouldn't personally class modern Astons or Ferraris cool, as on the TG coolwall sometimes you can try too hard and end up looking like a bell. Old Audi Quattro, cool. I think we're along the same lines here with the Lava Dome (or most mid range Konas).

I'd rather that, though, than not enough <shrug>

My post did appear to imply that I think the expensive Konas are cool and the cheap ones aren't...but that's because it's true :D

The Cinder Cone was one of the first bikes I ever wanted to own and then my mate got one. It was cool. He got it pinched from outside a train station and used the insurance money to buy a Lava Dome. It just looked like a cheap Cinder Cone. That wasn't cool and it still isn't.
