I like them..but mainly for show..and since all the local popo's have a hard on for neon's, i probably wouldnt get much use outta them.

I saw some bikes on main street in Daytona that had them in different fashions. Some were mounted under the seat, tank, fairings etc. I saw a couple that were well set up and looked good. Mostly, I think they are an expensive distraction

They suck, squidy ***** but hey if you think it makes you go faster by allmeans do it. I would spend money on my bike for HP mods than spend on pretty mods. I hate pretty bikes, My 1k is not pretty....it is fast.

Not much point though. In the state of PA, neon lighting is illegal to drive around with. Now you can park your bike and turn them on, but as soon as you turn that throttle, they gotta get turned off.

I wouldn't put them on my bike, but if I had a customer that was going to pay me to install them, I wouldn't say no

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

Those things are for squids!!!!

I'm with Twisty on this!! But then again my views on bikes has changed quite a bit over the years. Years ago I like them, but now I don't!

DJ, if you put those on your GSXR, I'm going to break them all when I see them at the GAP!!!!!!!
