My first motorcycle was a Suzuki GS500E. I liked it okay, but every time I see a NH 750 I regret that that wasn't my first bike. The only reason it wasn't was that the year I bought my GS500,...

It has gotten rather ridiculous. Indian is like the dead guy in Weekend At Bernie's. People keep dragging the corpse around trying to convince everyone it's still alive.

I agree. I like the Triumph Street and Speed Triples except for that. This Diavel thing carries it even further. It's tops on my list of "annoying trends in motorcycle design."
