.....all you people are a bunch of winers.
Buffeting, lighting, jeeze!!!
The freaking bike won't be out for another year.
NO machine is perfect. EVERY machine needs SOME kind of modification to personalize it for YOUR body and needs.
I own a V-strom, is she perfect? No. But you know what? I have modified the bike for MY needs and now she is SPECTACULAR!!!
As far as the whole "ugly" business, darn near every time I stop for gas, or stop for a bite, average people who don't ride approach me and tell me, "Cool bike!".
Why do people have to always fill these boards with such non-stop negativity?
I bet you all complain that the BMW K1600GT gets "lousy" fuel economy.
