Settle marital 700 argument for me please

My wife and I are having an arguement over her 700. I just got done getting her goodies powdercoated and installed. She loves the bike and says it looks girly. I say NO the bike doesn't look girly, and i have liked them since they come out in 10. She says the little doo dad swirls are girlish. I disagree, and this is no way calling you guys who have the 10 SE girly, like i said I liked them, and I told her if she divorces me the bike stays with me LOL. Set her straight fellows and gals.

I was never a fan of the Iron Cross bumpers, maybe if it was solid black.... Other than that I don't see nothing wrong with it. I like it.

LMAO at the eyelash comment. I'm a little biased cause i have the same graphics but i like it. would have done a black bumper but it looks good overall. i got the same nerf bars from houser on order in black. is that a stock houser color on yours or did you have it powder coated locally?

It's not girly in my opinion.

Everyone said my old Banshee was a little girly too, and I had to get rid of my old Banshee because nobody would ride with me..

I have to agree with this one too. The bumper looks like a big red bow in the front. Kinda like red lipstick and the other stuff is the nail polish. I can deal with the graphics but the red accessories would look a lot meaner in black. Still a nice looking bike though. Get her a Metal Mulisha helmet and she'll be turning heads for sure.

I'm glad everyone sees the humor in my comment. I think the bike is bad ass and if any one were to make any negative comments to me while ridding it I would just tell them a phrase from Lady Gaga.... It was made this way Yamaha doesn't make mistakes, in a lispy type of voice then under my breath say jealous! :fruity:

The color is their candy red, I was trying to match it to the frame. I had them powdercoat the bumpers for me too.

Well I see the wife was the winner of the poll. Of course that makes her a happy wife, if the wife's happy, everybody is happy.
