i think the pc800 and bmw's CL pos are two peas in a pod except for the following facts;

1 the honda is functional.
2 it starts everytime you ask it too
3 it will actually get you where you want to go
4 it does not need a new final drive seal every 12k


in the bmw's defense, it does cost 14 plus and cannot get out of its own way.

'As if they are on rails at 130mph' I was told the other day by this one's previous owner. I really don't need to be doing that but then...

If not, thats probably because everyone thought you must have a mental problem if you spent money to buy such a hideous bike.
People are always nice to retards.
Feh. You're jealous and you know it.

MV Agusta 600 in about 1965. You can't appreciate the true squareness of the headlight in this shot, but trust me, it is truly vile.
Other than styling , it was a radical bike for its day with racebred four cylinder DOHC engine, disc brakes etc etc. But, whew, what was the styling department thinking.

Ironically, the 750cc cafe racer version in the 1970s, in red white and blue was probably one of the best looking bikes ever made.

The MV 600 front view - enough to scare small children on approach... and grown men.

The CX500 was always the gold standard of pig ugly IMHO.

The Victory Vision Tour has what looks like a rumble seat some engineer forgot to incorporate into the design. Despite it's singlemindedness of purpose,...

It looks like they cared just a bit too much...

They look better without the fairing*, although you do have to relocate some of the electrics.




* Especially after sliding it across the pavement.

Despite having seen the victory vision tour-thingy which hideous.

My heart belongs to the Morbidelli V8, which cost and arm and a leg and at least one kidney when new.
