    From what I can tell, not many of them do. And the ones that do approach it in a sort of half-hearted way.

    There are 600s and there are 600s. Do you mean 600 sports bikes? If so, I'm amazed. Common wisdom over here, at least, is to ride a bike between 40-60hp for about a year before moving up to a...

    Surely you're confusing the 500GS with the YZF600R? The GS doesn't look fast even when it's moving! (It doesn't feel fast when it's moving, either)

    I actually don't think they're that bad looking. But I've reached a point in my life where comfort is more important than appearance. To that end, I wear sensible shoes and own a barcalounger.
