you know, im going to fucking jump to the opposite side here. an opinion is an opinion. and really, 95% of peoples opinions i dont give a shit about. does anyone really care if you have clipons and no rearsets. not really. i have so many other things that id rather worry about, and be critical of, its just not up there. really, who gives a shit either way. if you want to strap a monkey dick to your bike, go right ahead. i dont care. if you want clubmans to bash your tank, i could care less. (clips will do the same thing, why do you think ducati tanks and manx tanks looked like that?) ive had clipons spin in crashes and mangle tanks. if you dont want your clubmans to hit your tank, its an easy fix. drill the stops on your lower clamps. one hole in each. thread it. then thread a bolt into it. instant coolio adjustable steering stops. no more pinched fngers. no more "tank rash" (they make an ointment for that i think). im begining to think this thread comes up just to get geets blood pressure skyrocketing. i bet he cant type because hes so angry and shaking. i mean really, in the end...who gives a shit. build your bike the way you like it. your riding or your building is what counts. it could be the biggest piece of shit, but if you can ride the fuck out of it....who cares whats on it. anyone ever see ropers street ride? an ex500. it is a huge piece. how many r6 assholes do you think hes smoked on that thing? its not the bike. its cred. the bike itself doesnt give you shit. far as im concerned, the nicest manx, the nicest parilla, even honda, if the tires arent worn edge to edge....ya aint shit. id rather talk to a guy with an ft500 with shagged tires and clubmans before id talk to a guy with a lightning with all the right bits and chicken strips. build it and ride it like a $5 whore.
oh yeah, and make sure, when the topic comes up, you tell everybody you have clipons because some guy on the internet said youre gay if you dont have them. then head down to the drag bar. yeah, the one with all the fags in it.
