but I didnt vote for it to be the bestlooking off-roader. I like it and it's a good bike. We have a very nice German community for it. But I don't think, it's so outstanding pretty.
Concerning that, see my earlier post about my Triumph Tiger Trail or the Norton P 11, never owned by me, for my opinion on the theme!

Ship it to me, I think it looks great.

The Ossa was way better looking than the Yamaha DT-1 and also was an all around better bike. I replaced my 1968 DT-1 with this 250 Pioneer in 1972 and stopped falling off motorcycles as much. For about $100 more than the Yamaha you got: knobby tires, suspension that worked, better handling, lighter weight, more torque and good looks.



The early Bultaco Pursangs were gorgeous bikes too.

In my opinion all this bikes are beautiful, Man some of them are super sexy, But half of them at least are like "Skinny, needy, Hollywood starlets" and to be sincere I don't know if I'm ready to deal with all the crap that comes with the package.

I much rather have a some "Fugly" friend that I can trust my life to it
