I'd originally thought the same thing - but when I ordered the screen from TT, the small, spoiler unit alone was only 10 bucks less so I figured I'd go all in and if I didn't like the Vario screen I'd swap back to the stock and attach the little guy.
But in person, the Vario doesn't bug me so I'm keeping it as is for now.
I think the deal is, I agree that in photos it looks awkward, but in photos one's sitting there staring at the bike, and in reality I just don't do that. I pull the bike outta the garage, give it a quick once over, and head out and enjoy the ride.
Sitting around staring at the bike when I could be riding seems a missed opportunity....!
I do love that bike!
