I does too !
It's impossible to look at without screwing up your face.
And it is indeed a loathsome looking thing - it takes some doing to make a CX uglier, but someone has succeeded.

I wish that bike just needed a full fairing and a new paint job, but its more than that.
I hope this isnt a good example of CX500 - not really seen one before.

@Dam - Im not sure what your getting at..... sorry.

I tend to not take pictures of Plastic Maggots, on the grounds that I find them all pretty revolting, but here's one that I snapped at the 2008 Classic Bike Day at Squires Cafe :

Apart from the missing screen it's pretty much as it came out of the shop.

Ah ... I was hoping it was aimed at CX500 owner...

Though I've made progress - Once i've replaced the brake cylinder on my 205 I will sell it (try to sell it again) and raise money for the Bike fund. Part is in today :) EDIT: They sent one for the wrong side.
