I feel the need to stir up some trouble and figured this is about as good as it gets.
The odd thing is that chrome and neon on a sportbike is probably the blingiest mod anyone can do to their bike. But many, many riders would consider this wrong on so many levels, myself included. And yet very few of us are armored against the need to bling and mod our bikes.
Even ME, as practical as I am, bobbed the fender and added flush mount and mini stalk signals along with a carbon can 4 into one on m old 9R. And I'm in the midst of modding my new Z1000. I'm even considering getting a new chain so I can have gold colored side plates on my new bike to match the gold colored highlights already on the bike.
Yet I turn up my nose at folks with chromed frames and wheels on sportbikes and positively retch my guts out at the thought of neon in the fairings.
But don't let me influence you... Vote how you feel...
