Definitely not my intention. I have seen several casual mentions of this sentiment on multiple threads, did a search to learn more but didn't find much, and thought it might be an interesting discussion point.

I have an '81 Odyssey, which isn't quite the dedicated touring machine that it would later become (and become known for). I gather it has a very similar frame (if not identical) to the Lotus Legend of the same year. More a sport-touring geometry somewhere between a roadie and tourer.
