I think the Vision is pushing real hard for that ooogly title. That thing is a ***** from every angle.

I dunno' I don't think the Vision looks that bad, I'd call it Unique as opposed to ugly.....I'm afraid the 1200C is a pooch no matter how you slice it

To be fair Kenny ol' bud I'm sure when you're riding a Vstrom and all you can see is the windshield and instruments then you can pretend the rest of the bike isn't so offensive to the eye, I mean it's almost not as ugly as a KTM.............

Sounds good. I'll be there in a few days. Hell, I may just go look at one of those Buells at those prices.

Which dealer? Crap! If I didn't already own two perfectly good bikes and wasn't working on paying down my debt, I'd buy one of those 1125CR's in a heartbeat. Is that price plus tax then out the door?

But that's exactly why I bought it! Acres and acres of motorcycle, and it's ALL MINE!!! Besides, size does matter. I heard that on teevee just this morning.
