Humor--The Ugly VeeWee

I'm looking for some humor about the *fact* of riding this ugly humpling--now that I have actually boughten into the gang of uglies, and am now happily riding one...

What I want to know is, are there any funny stories of ugly V-Stroms? On another thread I saw a couple:
1. One guy saw an ugly bike coming at him and looked to see what kind of ugly that was--turned out to be just like his. (Trooper, I think had that one.)
2. Another guy, (EFS, I think?) said he thought the Wee looked some kind of "Executive"--of all things!!!

I'm not ashamed to be seen riding it--ugly as I personally am, how could I be? But I sure am amazed that such a thing could be called a motorcycle! Might as well enjoy the fact with some good-natured humor about it. :-)

Can anybody help me out--help me to change my warped perspective on the poor ugly thing?
Vangky.

I happen to think they are handsome and rugged looking bikes......especially when equipped with aluminum panniers, bash plate, engine guards, and many other adventure ready farkles.

I used to think they were ugly especially next to the VFR, but time spent together and farkling the bike has made me look at the Strom through more appreciative eyes I guess. I caught myself just last night going out to the garage to just look at it!

Glad to know I am not the only one that does that. :mrgreen: I always get allot of people who are curious as to what it is, they are so used to seeing nothing but Harely's and race bikes.

Designers and those that set aesthetic standards are for the most part developmentally arrested 2 year olds who's mama gave in to them. They live and pass on the delusion that whatever they think is some how correct and important.

Fortunately your loving God gave you a middle finger , with which you may retort

I actually had someone tell me that my Wee looked executive. Looking at it I understand their comment. Doesn't it look ready to take care of business!

Think your VStrom is ugly? Park it next to a KLR for a while.

I am of the opinion that all adventure touring bikes are ugly, you just find the ones who's ugliness appeals to you.

Personally I find old Tigers and pretty much all the KTM adventure bikes to be terribly ugly, I like Stroms and newer Tigers though.

I think of mine as one of those ugly dogs that needs a home. So ugly it's beautiful.
