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.

I ask myself, would I rather have neons or a harley or the clap and I just cant decide
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.:confused: 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 :finger: ) than have an equivelant of a '90's mini-truck

I think that's what spongebob did...he left the site!
C'mon spongebob, give the guys a break. I mean, neons may not be functional, but at least they add weight! What more could you ask for? (well, they do drain yur wallet, and could muddle up your electrical system)

Neons rock! You know what else is cool? Shoot the entire bike with a spray on adhesive and just go to town with a pillow bag full of glitter. Ive got carbon fiber pinwheels where my rear view mirrors used to be. My latest edition is a 500W buglight that hangs from a chain on top of my 6' chrome sissy bar. You fools better step back, I got respect on the street. Oh yeah, and a big red type R tattoo on my ass.

Go back to the late 40s to early 50s & some riders would put on Gustapo like caps, large leather belts all chrome studded & names like SPEED or ACE on the back.
Most bikes (Brit as well) had crash bars, Flanders handlebars & sometimes risers to give that ape look, some had a chromed car antenna at the back with a faked fox tail though said antenna was just for looks & not hooked up to anything. Some even dumped the solo saddles for terrible thin/hard old "buddy seats" seats used on HD, oh yes often extra lights up front though only one would work & so many would be 'rear brake end artists' so times have changed a bit, but on tends to wonder.
Still the majority did not follow this freaky trend, but to ride a m/c without a multy zippered black leather jacket & no Gustapo cap was sort of frowned on upon the average. Yes that would be me with a tweed cap & a waxed cotten Barbour & Son's Enduro jacket.

I'm thinking a jack-n-the-box antenna ball would be just the right touch:p surrounded by neon with feathers & glitter:D
