One non-rider told me that this bike (F800 in Kalamatta versus Sertao) looks more manly because of the color.
"That bike looks better than your last bike."
"It looks more manly"
"Really, in what way?"
"Well for one the color..."
I get compliments on the looks, particularly the aggressive styling and the size/height. Throw some knobbies on it and it will look even better.
