Just when you thought the 1125 couldn't get any uglier...

(I sure hope she's fun 'cause she ain't pretty)

It's fun for sure. You won't be making any extra trips to the garage though.

I guess you can buy an H-D Brutale if you want a pretty bike.

Only if I can get the "black denim" paint and the apehangers.

Don't tell me, you already got to ride the alien-bike?

Who did you blackmail?

I haven't ridden this one but I have ridden the 1125R. It ain't purty but it's a nice bike.

Well, Buells have never been pretty. Odd? yes. Funky? Yes. Did some kind of look like a two-wheeled pogo stick? Sure.

But, pretty has never been a label that a Buell has ever been stuck with.

I think my 2004 Buell is a pretty bike and have been told so many times on the street.

I don't know anyone who things this new clown bike is pretty.

Don't get me wrong, I like Buells. I like them with the sporty engine in it.

But, Buells have always been odd looking.

I think the XBs models are really nice looking. Very tight and integrated. The old tube frame Buells could be a bit odd but the XBs are sweet.

Default Some things....

....you just can't unsee.

I'm reminded of Predator when he takes his mask off and Arnold looks like he's going to puke at those big pincers on the side of his mouth. Knock those big arse snorkels off the sides and we might have a starting point.
