July 8 Weekly Open Thread: Bike Mods

Motorcycle windshieldIn the "Motorcycle Accessories" Department, I think this falls somewhere between "Egad!" and "Gadzooks!" I guess somebody wanted a windshield for their bike, and they certainly have one now. I've never seen one like this before, so I wonder if it's store-bought or custom made.

The extra orange rear storage compartment is a nice touch as well.

Hats... er, helmets off to whomever came up with this modification. Looks like they did a great job of matching the color of their "addition" to their bike.

I just ordered some "el wire" for my bike, mainly to outline the gauge cluster and mark the handlebar switches. Maybe the results will get posted here if they turn out all right.

And of course, this is also the weekly place to talk about any transportation-related subjects, whether you have bugs in your teeth or not.

When looking at the price of a decked-out Harley, Gold Wing, or Victory, many would reconsider and think, why not just buy car? These loaded bikes, while neat, are heavy, and include intercoms so the driver and passenger can converse. A bit overdone. My next cycle will be in the $7,000.00 - $10,000.00 range, and essentially is an adult toy, although an enjoyable one. My wife was succinct, "When you get the bike, just buy one helmet." She has a small convertible.

Obviously there's a market for Tuk-Tuks here.... They just need metalflake paint jobs and they're ready to sell.
