The most boring bike you've ever ridden

Posting this in road warriors because blacktop is boring, right?

Unlike most people, I seem to actually gravitate towards "boring" bikes. Words like appliance and bland sound like synonyms for "workhorse" and "reliable" to me. I hear linear power delivery and 50+ mpg and I get unexcited!


A few choice quotes about boring bikes, bike models removed to protect the guilty:

Just an ok bike, IMO. It actually bores me to tears.

What's the most boring bike you've ever ridden? What was so boring about it? What bikes failed to achieve the pinnacle of boringness?

What bikes have a pulse-calming, breath-regulating, drool-correcting effect every time you ride or look at them?


My entry, a bike so boring I can't even find a decent image more recent than the summer 2011:
