Well, let me say this about that.....

Ugly babys first:

1. KTM 690, looks like something out of Spy vs. Spy cartoons

2. 80's Honda Magna...wtf were they thinking?

3. 90's Suzuki Madura..obvious drug abuse by design staff....

4. BMW 1200 C....stick to Sport Tourers, Hans...really

5. Yamaha Virago.. well, nice try I guess...

6. Indian, old ones as well as new ones. I sorry, they may be an icon but I think they're butt-ug.

7. Honda Shadow Aero..poke my eyes out please...thank you.

8. Norton Hi Rider... designers and all their reletives should be shot including the family dog.

9. Harley springer heritage softail thing with fringes all over.....come on tubby, it's not 1950 anymore..

10. Kawasaki Vulcan... why do early Japanese cruisers all look like this?


Now for the 10 best:

1. '75 Triumph Trident

2. '77 HD Low Rider

3. '72 501 Maico

4. '72 CR 360 Husky

5. '76 R90S BMW

6. '85 K100RS BMW

7. '59 Triumph Tiger

8. '73 250 Bultaco Pursang

9. '80 Laverda Jota

10.'02 Triumph Trophy 1200


My opinion only of course.....

*edit for memory jog*

Here's another shot of a 3TA, What were they thinking? Looks like a snail shell with a bike stuck in it.

Those are called "Bathtub Triumphs", I don't think they look bad myself, keeps all the road muck off your gabardine slacks and Harris tweed sports jacket

Whats REALLY cool is a kettenkrad but they're not really motor-sikkles so they don't count..

Well how about this one? A Norton 400cc "Electra". Slow and heavy, with an electric start motor that sounded like a cement mixer. Vibrated so badly, that Norton sent out ant-vibe retrofit kits that consisted of giant rods that had to be welded to the frame, and then bolted to the motor. Looks like a poorly done anglo version of the CB350.
