I can't wait for them to go back to smooth, flowing lines. It probably won't be in my lifetime though.

I don't think it is too bad for a "standard" style motorcycle. What I do dislike about this one, and a lot of other modern bikes, is the ugly exhaust system.

I’m sure it’s an awesome beast to ride but simply has no curb appeal.   The thing has no ass.

You're being too hard on it. As compared to some of the other "half" bikes this one ain't bad. I envision a nice ROUND chrome exhaust pipe and then I'm in the game.

I like the monster --- care more about function that looks--  and I'd love to see lots of bikes go on a diet...
