TV fop scores paintjobs for style
Changing Rooms fop Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen says the GSX-R1100M you see pictured here is the one he’d like to have parked outside his home.
" It’s like the bike is wearing the remnants of recent roadkill, " he says in the issue of RiDE magazine you’ll find on news-stands this weekend.
" The design says, ‘I don’t give a stuff what you think,’ and I have to admire that, " he continues.
Llewellyn-Bowen’s views on the GSX-R, a CBR600 GP Replica, a British Superbike rep R1 and a Colin Edwards Laguna Seca Replica Hornet are pitched against those of Ducati designer Pierre Terblanche and the man on the floor, DK salesman Garry Mackay.
Interestingly, Gary says of the GSX-R1100: " Oh dear, it’s horrible. We wouldn’t put this in our showroom. "
