The owner of the butt ugly KTM was the first one to take a pic.



Come to think of it, he took that pic.

Hey, beauty isn't everything. Thankfully, for me.
He probably loves that homely, unreliable, beast of a bike.

Imagine you are dating a girl who has a homely face, and who bitches a lot, but also happens to be a nymphomaniac gymnast.

So, KTM 990s are the Nadia Comaneci of motorcycles?

BMW 1200GSs must be named Brumhilda.

And that early sixties Vespa? Gina Lollobrigida!

I like round headlights too.

Took this snap of my C70 tonight before heading out to pick up beer (I wanted to try out the new rear case I added).
