The first time I saw mine in person I had 4th & 5th thoughts.
Now it come to match my personality.
Everyone knows my dogs
Everyone knew my OLDWING (the G fell off years ago)
When I got my V I got a pile of texts wanting to know if the wing finally died
Hopefully the new owner enjoys riding a bike built before he was born

You should have copied the photo and put it up here. This thread is now dead because the post was deleted on craigslist. Oh well. I think my '11 is beautiful so I wanted to see what you thought was ugly.

Hell no! I get complements all the time! Its more bare bone than alot of bikes. You want to know what is really ugly or fugly like the cool guys say, is the other bikes that are a 1000 plus lbs.
I frickin love the V and love the way I set up high. I can see all around. But ugly no friggin way!

My question to you is if the V is so ugly to you? Please post a bike photo, that in you eyes, is the most beautiful. Any price range. If I agree with you, I will purchase the bike for you, licence for a year, and pay insurance for one year! Ok lets see the photo!

That poor girl can't even afford propper fitting clothes. I wonder if a handful on $1 would help.

+ 1. I saw it first in Motorcycle Consumer News in a column about bikes in Europe. It looked great to me. I thought I'd buy one if they ever came to the US, so I wrote a letter to Kawasaki USA in California and said as much. (My fellow Americans can thank me next time you see me.)

FWIW, I've never had anyone tell me my V is ugly and lots of people have described it as beautiful. Eye of the beholder and all....

I'm more of a cruiser kind of guy, but practicality has made me interested in the Versys, not the looks.

Moto Guzzi makes a bike called the Stelvio, now that is one fugly bike (worse than the V-Strom). As for the Versys? Depends on how many drinks . Very practical though. Everything you need, nothin' you don't.

Like Bones I saw the V in MCN and thought 'must have'....really like the early model. The look of the V1000 not so much.


Weljo, I do love bike storys and that is one AWESOME bike tail!

I think you guys might be right about the clothes shrinking thing...

This young lady appears to have had the same problem!
