Honda has the toe out set like this because, at high speeds ( faster than 5 MPH) it helps to stablize the bike. Keeps it from darting all over the road. Yes it does look funny and you may be ok with setting the toe a little more in with little noticable darting. Also I was told that it helps when in 4 wheel drive and going uphill it performs better with the toe out set per Honda Specs. To each his own. I left mine at factory specs.
