Have you all noticed that the manufacturers seem to be gradually moving away from the classic motorcycle design and replacing that "naked" look where you can see everything with most of the stuff being covered with plastic? I guess this is the "new age" of motorcycle design.
Having come from 20 years of riding Gold Wing, 2 1 500's and 2 1800's, I'm pretty used to the tupperware look, though. I don't mind the look of the F6B and I could happily own one, as it's attributes far outweigh any perceived design negatives. Once you climb on one of those things and twist the throttle, you become instantly addicted to the smoooooth power and the huge quantity of it. That 1832CC flat six engine just delivers and delivers without a hiccup. Unfortunately, for the more "hardcore" group in the cruiser segment of motorcycling, it's a very silky smooth bike and it's quiet. Doesn't have quite the "character" of a V-twin.
