    NEON


    (ASSUMING MY BIKE ISNT TOTALED)
    I am thinking about putting neon on the bike this spring. I know that it will draw attention to the cops because last fall i was changing my oil one night in my front yard and a bike rode by with a neon licenceplate frame...and as usual the cops were on his ass a few yards up the street. This is just a little something i have thought about putting together for a while now, but i was wondering if someone out there had any idea what the fines were for getting caught for something like that.
    My GSXR is/was yellow, and i think that some yellow neon detailing would look SWEET. I am looking at putting two 4" tubes on each side it the plastic, a 2" tube in each of the vents in the front, a 4" tube over the front tire, and two 6" tubes over the rear tire. Obviously they will all be hidden and will only show up at night. (i am hoping that staying away from red or blue will bring a lessor of a fine...dont want to impersonate any athority figure) any suggestions??

    Adam, have you revalved your forks and shock? That's the FIRST thing you should do to tune your bike.

    How about:

    Changing gear ratios
    Lighter wheels
    520 chain kit
    rearsets
    undercut gears
    full leathers
    The best helmet money can buy
    street riding or racing boots
    The best gloves money can buy
    fog city visor demister
    alloy valve caps
    water wetter
    rear tire hugger


    All things I would buy before spending money on cosmetics, and none of these will cause unreliablility, and all will enhance your bike's rideablility and performance.

    It depends on the neon color and how you go about it. I remember the first time I saw a car with neons....it was a black '69 Camaro with blacklight neons tucked up under the wheelwells. It looked SO fuckin' cool! I've got two 9" blacklights for my car stereo...whenever I get around to installing it. :p

    But then the riceboys started putting 6' rails of bright green shit under their cars so it BLASTED off the pavement and looked horrible. Somehow that shit became cool.

    So anyway...my point is, if you do it right it will look good. If you pick the wrong color, placement, or put too many bulbs in, you're going to look like a ricer bitch.

    And if you look like a ricer bitch, I'm putting a BIG aluminum wing on my Chrysler!

    (The preceding has been that of one's opinion, and nothing more. Carry on!)

    I have seen cool neon.

    I have seen a TON of wicked gay neon.

    I'm pretty sure easy chicks like neon.

    Neon is about #243 on my list of things to do to my bike.


    In closing, it's your bike, if you like the way it looks then by all means go for it, andy maybe, just maybe it won't look gay, in which case you rule.

    good luck man

    Ok OK fine. maybe i shouldnt of ended this QUESTION with "ANY SUGGESTIONS"! My original "QUESTION" was having something to do with the "FINES" that were involved, but i guess no one knows exactlly what they are, and that is fine by me...But instead i have to listen/read about fucked up,off topic shit from (no offence) WIZE ASSES like yourself. It was just a simple question for christ sakes!!! sorry for asking. Oh ya...thanx to the people who were alot more considerate.

    You asked a question, fuckface. I answered it, along with many others. While your original question - as you claim - was about fines involved, you spent just as much time in that post talking about those gay-ass fuckin' lights as anybody else did here...

    Again, if you don't want honest answers, don't fuckin' ask. And if you wanna start slinging shit, you're barking up the wrong tree. I'm in a mood. Dig?

    slinging sh-t up a tree sounds like a bad idea in general, I mean, first of all, how're you gonna get the sh-t in the sling? you just pick it up with your hand? (ewwww), then, what if it doesn't stick to the tree? It's gonna fall back on your head! (ewwww again)....
