The parking lot at work is beautiful

Here is a pair of pics at the parking lot at work today.
It is beautiful, at least in my eyes.

Looks like a good place to work. However, people say that the V-Stroms are ugly or unatractive. I guess its all realative. I mean look at that large yellow labatross beaked monstrosity parked next to um and say the V-Stroms are ugly. Bah, IMO two of those bikes are beutiful. Guess which two.

Nice pics, I could be happy on any of them.

Sometimes at my office we have a R1200S, Ducati 748 and my Wee all parked at our front door. The Duc and Beemer are joyrides but my bike is always there. Its rare we get all 3 on the same day.

We have a similar thing. The Strom's always there, the CBR1000 is usually there, and the F4i puts in an appearance now and then. All three at once is rare.

Occassionally if we're really lucky the hot Burton Rep will come on her CB. I think if I was following her down the road and she went off, I'd end up in the ditch too. Gotta love chickonabike.

My Strom along with a Goldwing is usually there everyday throughout the year. An older Ninja just started showing up every day and when it's real nice out, a Harey Softail and a custom chopper sometimes show up. Such a waste to have a bike that costs you so much money and you won't ride it unless it's really nice out.

...you gotta be fair to BMW, they actually market the GS on its ugliness. I don't know anyone who even attempts to state it's in anyway attractive, least of all BMW.

The first time I saw the DL1000 I was split on its looks, now love it.

Same situation at my work, my DL is the only moto that's there just about every day, rain or shine. The other 3 bikes, even though they all live within 10km (I live 60km away) are hardly ever there and never when the weather is bad.

Its funny. My co-workers Duc is ALWAYS being worked on at Pro-Italia or garaged. Its too expensive for him to ride! Its rare too see it. On the otherhand, the Beemer is always on the road. Being the bosses bike, he gets to use it during work hours more then my Suzuki. For 20K, it better be ridden!
