"I consider them dangerous beyond belief and would like to see them regulated for safety reasons."



We are fortunate we can turn to the government to save us from the scourge of dangerous choppers. If only one life is saved, it will all be worth it, etc, etc,...

the only thing more ridiculous looking than a chopper rider is a (any) rider wearing a roadcrapper suit...the MC equivalent of a polyester leisure suit.

A Roadcrafter was good enough for Darth Vader!

Well that depends on how you define "function", yes? If you require of your bike that it make you look like a bada$$ and draw a small crowd between carrying you from bar to restaurant to club to after-hours "gentlemen's establishment", then a chopper functions beautifully. If you require of your bike that it be really pretty, particularly in terms of complex and intricate paint, do 0-45/50 mph in about 2 seconds stoplight to stoplight, with the occasional jaunt to 70/80 mph for intra-city highway work, then a chopper has very high function indeed.



If, on the other hand, you require of your bike that it be flickable and good on road-trips, well, then, not so much.

It may look ridiculous, but it's not about looks. It's about savin' skin.

Default Not my roadcrafter

I special ordered mine to look like a cowboy made over by the queer eye team.

A$$less chaps velcro right on.

Now I have full protection and I still look so cool.

'With sport bikes form still follows function'



My point exactly. The function sport bikes follow is closed cicuit racing. Not compatible with riding style required for public roads.



I have ridden choppers. Some are remarkedly comfortable (sprung seat) and stable. Very good for covering distance. Not something I ever would want to do on a gixxer
