It's because they're basically French.

I can’t even argue with that.

I've spent a couple of months in France. Can confirm. ;D

Well now that the bike of the month voting is over, I can post up some pics of the ugly oversized windshield that I just mounted to the bike lol I am hoping to put some real miles on the bike over the summer with a possible trip down to Georgia in the works, so id like to reduce wind fatigue if I can. I picked up this plexifairing3 at Mid-Ohio last year for $5. It big, but looks like it will do a swell job of keeping the wind blocked. It was missing one of the mounting brackets, so I did have to spring $35 for another used set off of feebay. Oh well, still cheap compared to the $250 price new. It has some scratches on it that I need to figure out how to buff out, but ill get there.

I'm also working on installing a "hondaman" transistorized ignition module on it, since I've had some issues with the points corroding. Irk was gracious enough to send me one he had kicking around. Chances are I could throw a new set of points on and a condenser and fix the problem, but these units claim to make the points last almost "forever", so as Forrest Gump would say its "just one less thing".

Wow that is a strange fairing.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Yeah the pictures May look better once I roll it outside, but here's a picture I grabbed off of Google of one on the front of a Ural. They seem to be pretty well known for being ugly but doing a wonderful job of what they're supposed to do. It's fairly quick to pull it back off to while just leaving four small brackets on the bike

Maybe it would be best to paint it lemon yellow.
