I can't honestly say that I've ever ridden
a bike that was "boring" to ride.
Then again, I can think of bikes that to me personally are boring to look
at. Maybe more so that they just happen to "do nothing" for me, which of course is a matter of personal taste.
One man's trash is another man's treasure... beauty is in the eye's of the beholder... and all that.
How far is "up"?
