Default Too Far

I think that may be taking it a little too far.

Default Re: The world needs more fringe!

I am totally chrome trimmed - open piped - bad ass wanna be in halloween leathers - fringed - and ape hangered out. This whole "Cruiser" thing is beginning to look like a Village People video gone horribly wrong. My 2 cents is - quit trying to look like a parade float and just enjoy the bike.

Well they claim it's more aerodynamic and reduces buffeting. Although judging by some of the guts, there hasn't been a buffet reduction in a long time.



I predict we'll see these on MotoGP bikes soon to help with the high top speeds.

"Well they claim it's more aerodynamic and reduces buffeting."



Yeah. We see that idea being used on F-16s and other high performance aircraft as well as at the GP circuit all the time.



Other Important Facts!:



Helmets are DANGEROUS and they SNAP NECKS!



And LOUD PIPES SAVE LIVES!



And Jimmy Hoffa is buried under the goal posts at the NY Jets stadium.



Jim Morrison is STILL ALIVE. He faked his death to get the INSURANCE!



Did they do their fringed windshield aerodynamic testing on the grassy knoll? It's the only way to be sure.

Default Enough of this junk, already!

Where is the hard-hitting, no-holds-barred review of the VibeRider? I understand even GDub (on what's left of 2WT) did a bit on this fine new accessory.



What the heck is my subscription bux being used for, fer chrissakes!? Other than 1/2 a bottle of Crown, maybe.



And in other impotent matters, I see at the top of my screen that the Sec O' State has successfully withstood surgery. It seems he had a Colin-oscopy.

Default Why more fringe is needed?

From the "Does this bike make me look fat?" crowd came a desperate need for a cost effective way to increase the fairing and windscreen of bikes as their owners mature. As our society has become more obese fringe will take on an ever increasing role. Fringe on golf carts, boats, etc.
