Very kewl and in good taste. I'm going to look into a set for the V7.

Be sure to order the ones with LED chips at the end of each tassel for maximum appeal after dark.

From the caption and the overall look, I think the bike may be owned by these guys...

I wonder if you can get those in I-talian leather to go on a set of Lafranconis?

That's just so wrong.   Maybe his job is sweeping parking lots and that's for getting into the tight spots.

There aren't enough sharp pointy things sticking out all over the place. I would recommend a set of spikes running down the gas tank to right in front of your balls.

OK, so this is yet another example of how one particular brand of motorcycle (I won't mention the name, because i don't want to be a "hater") inspires not just some- but many- people to accessorize the thing in the never ending competition to see who's got the worst taste. I mean, seriously, if this isn't an argument for "you're begging to be treated like the clown you are", i don't know what is.

Chicken or egg?

Is it the BRAND or the sub-culture that embraced the brand?

No matter.

Worst one I ever saw was a Pagan with a so over the top chopper I just stood there shaking my head.

If the 6-7' sissy bar and tiny passenger pillion perched about 3-4' above the ground wasn't enough, EVERY SINGLE possible surface (bar ends, foot pegs, fender struts, mirror stems, air cleaner, axle covers and dozens of bolts etc.) had sharp bladed knives/edges incorporated into it. Hell, the centerpiece of the giant sissy bar was a broad sword.

I get the whole craftsmanship factor, the art factor, hell I even get the rebellious counter-culture thing at times... but jebus, WHY WHY WHY would you make every possible surface as dangerous as possible?

A good friend of mine (RIP), who was a long-time M/C racer, told me of a time he was rejected at the pre-race tech inspection because his bike was louder than permitted.  He did the inner-tube trick and went back to tech.

When the inspectors pointed at his "modifications" and told him he couldn't do that, he merely said "Show me in the rule book where it says I can't."

They couldn't find anything written in the rules, so they had to allow it.  He then passed the sound test.

They melted and fell off a few laps into the race, but it didn't matter then.
