Well, if nothing else the whole retro hipster/scrambler biker thing is at least getting a lot of riders out of that "I'm Darth Vader and must wear all black" mindset that causes visibility problems on the road.
Hipsters seem to prefer plaid and shades of brown to all

Frankly, I am okay with anything that gets more people onto two wheels with a safer mindset then "lets do wheelies at 140+mph while lane splitting."

The more people that know motorcycle riders or are motorcycle rider the more people will notice us.

More riders acting sanely is WAY BETTER than riders acting like asses and giving us all a bad name.

Those small, fat tires still bother me.

Not a fun prospect on pavement, and it isn't suspended for off-road travel. I think of it as a poser bike, and I own a 500 cc equivalent that is more UJM oriented.
