V-star 650. The worst seat I have ever sat on is the only thing to remember about it.

BMW K100....FUGLY temperamental and horrible wind protection. Fantastic bike at 80mph+ but a complete top heavy pig at parking lot speeds and would kill my back in 20 min.

Put about 2000 miles on one, and got rid of it. Not my cup of tea.

I had one of those, though it was quite good stock, once the suspension was changed it was bloody brilliant!
They just need some help in the suspension department, then they are far from boring, in the twisty stuff at least

I have always fun when I drive bike but one bike that made me really disopointed it actually honda deauville 700. I thought it is going to be a great bike for me. Man, after riding the bike for a hour or so I was really disopointed. It is ugly slow and sounds like a tractor. I could just no figure out why it was so bloody slow. Told the dealer about it and he told that the deauville 700 is notorius known for beeing slow.

Talking

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"?

What he said.

If the bike is boring you as you ride, go ahead and zone out -- things will get exciting again soon enough after you quit paying attention.
