Me and a few others were just taking about this Sat. None of us have but it sounds like a good idea sometimes.

i hate cups!!!! i dont wear one for football why would you wear one for a bike??? i never heard of that....but i guess it would suck introducing your balls to the tank on the occation of a big bump!!

i know a guy that wrecked his R1. and dented the tank with his nuts and had to have sergery and all and his area was screwed up for like 6 months. but i dont think a cup would have helped casue he was just screwed up period.

I think a cup would do as much damage to your growing as just hitting the tank. :2cents:
Which is more important to you? The jewels or being able to walk. Hmmmm that's a tough question.
There not comfortable to wear anyway so I don't think I will ever try on on the bike. :2cents:

They're completely uncomfortable to wear and I don't need the distraction while riding. Besides, if I screw up bad enough to hurt the jewels, I think I've got other problems to worry about.

The only time I've had problems with the boys getting crushed is with a passenger that wouldn't put her hands on the tank and kept sliding forward onto me when I'd stop. I only took her for a short ride and then I never took her for a ride again. However, that no longer matters because I won't be taking ANY passengers on the R6. I've put on the solo cowl and I'm going to remove the passenger pegs as soon as I get an exhaust hanger built.

I dont, but I have thought about it. Everytime you see a crashed bike with that big ol dent on the tank, you just know what its from! (ouch) .
