Always heard beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Sorry, I don't behold beauty in this one. Trying to hard, bikes have beauty by showing their function begets form style. This one just looks to un-finished for my taste.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
