FM. I can't tell if you are joking?   ???  FWIW, I see beauty in purpose driven design, if there is no value in application, I see no appeal.  My GS is purpose built, with sturdy, clean lines meant to used in all situations for real world use.  The lines are appealing, the color is appealing, and all additions deliver function, not flash, even the stickers have purpose-support the industry products that provide reliable bits of kit.  Only (roughly) 10,000 miles this years (3,000 off road), and she still looks hot!!


















I can sort of get the idea of beauty being what is seen in the elegance of function but this reminds me of an aviation saying: "Helicopters can't fly, they are just so ugly that the ground repels them."

BTW: NO insult intended, that is a nice ride.

None taken, I reckon part of the beauty is the labor of taking a good platform and making it travel worthy in all conditions.  Not many bikes have that  :)  Beyond that?  I find the lines attractive and love the color scheme.

FWIW, my bike is the best looking in more places than most (not just on the pavement), be it mud, dirt, sand, gravel, pavement, or track, it just does it all 8)

Hard to narrow it down to just one, although I'm partial to a couple of bikes that were in vogue when I was "hooked" on the motorcycling lifestyle:

#1

#2


and of course, this one, while not all that old, just tugs at my heartstrings:

'99 C10 "MissTriss" *sold*
'04 ZZR1200 "Sweet heart" *sold*
'81 GL1100 Interstate "Puttz"*sold*
'00 K12LT..."Battleship Galactica".....
