neons do look pretty trick, and alot of people here in the pittsburgh area do have them on their bikes.....it makes you stand out and at times can be a little squidish, but you gotta seperate your self from the rest sometimes ya know

i imagine those are the folks who sit their bikes out in front of mario's in the southside, let the pretty girls sit on'm and play 'smack the rev limiter' in neutral. good thing they saved their neons from the last vehicle fad...minitrucks, or was it civics with spoilers?..oh i just can't keep up.

i might need to pick up some neons to finish the look of the old sabre when 'Tron' comes back into style.

The clap is easier to get rid of before any family or friends find out so I guess I'd have to go with 'the clap'.

More fun picking it up too!!

I hear ya'. With the clap, it's just a big shot in the hip. For the other two, there's titles and wiring involved. Just some additional info. so you can make an informed decision.

Edit: Come to think of it, I know a guy who got the clap and there was wiring involved in that, too. This is just getting more confusing. Good luck.

I'd throw the money spent on making my bike a "ghetto-bike", on some performance stuff. I don't know what the neon costs, but any amount would be too much considering I'd yank it off after all the guys I ride with would make fun of me.

If you wanna stand out, learn how to RIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!...and ride well. I would rather have a guy say "man, that guy can ride the piss out of that bike", than "man, neat neon".

I'd much rather be able to ride like Duhamel, Bostrom, Edwards, Nicky etc (although I doubt it will ever happen ) than have an equivelant of a '90's mini-truck
