I think that is why some people like bull dog puppies...and some don't. I've always had my heart beat a little faster when I saw a GS. I always noted that the guys who owned one were 10% happier! ( and 20% better looking) Seriously, I think It is great that not everyone likes the looks, there would be something seriously wrong if everybody like it.
I guess I like its look because it looks like it should for what it is suppose to be. Form follows function and many bikes don't even have that look. Plus I don't have to spend an hour taking it out of its plastic bubble to work on it.
I could never get past the GS's "dirt bike ugly" look, but that is a personal prejudice, admittedly. That aside, Cycle Canada magazine said the R1200GS is the best bike ever made. Before anyone launches into a "bollocks" thread, take that with a grain of salt and read it as "the R1200GS is an extremely good motorcycle and we really like it a lot."
