If you think Pirro's Honda CRT was a good looking bike, you need your eyes examined. View it in company with other MotoGP and CRT bikes and it's positively hideous. It's bulbous looking fairing is reminiscent of the first Buell race bikes....or possibly the Harley Davidson VR....only the VR was better looking. I saw it in person at the IMS and couldn't believe it was on the grid with the rest of the bikes it was parked with. As for best looking bike, I'd have to go with the Yamahas of Tech 3. They look proportionally perfect when seen side by side with the other bikes.

hmmn, not really gettin' the whole tech3 love affair...? i mean it's okay, but it's really just basic black. not exactly pushing the outer limits of nature's color spectrum. hell, when i throw on a tux come new years i'll look like 007. not much to it really.

the duc...? easily the worst livery. in years past, even if the duc didn't go so well, at least it was always the "sexy italian". as of late not so much. it not only went bad, but also LOOKED bad doing it. 2 demerits issued to bologna. the GP7/8 that stoner rode was sharp as a pin. mid year '09 (very pre-ross) when the all-white stoner livery debuted at PI (which ironically looked good), the fairings under it physically changed and also got "bulbous". been downhill ever since.
