It depends on you. I don't think names on the bike are cool, nor stuffed animals on the trunk either for that matter. But what I like isn't germane, what's important is what the owner likes. Same for the general public or other riders. I have a Gadsden 'Don't tread on me' flag on the back of my bike and a NRA decal too. I don't care what anyone else thinks about it. It does say something about me but it's something you'd know if you talked to me for a few minutes anyway. It pleases me.

So go with what you like and let the world go hang.

You will never be cool to the Harley crowd on a Geri Cherry no matter what you stick on it.

Wow! That got some emotion going I was just saying since I had a '93 with names on the back, I wanted to see if it was still in style to have names. If I was worried about Harley Guys I would have one. Besides, It is paid for.
I am the kind of guy if everyone is going one way I go another.
I am not out to impress anyone, just saying that I noticed that I get the "Here comes a moped" look from them.
I recently met a GWRRA member and I asked about the non waving Harley guys. He said " You would be mad too if you paid all that money and your bike rode like that!.

So I am off to the Vinyl Graphics guy to make me some nice GOLD names for the back. I might even post some pics!!
Thanks

Looks tasteful. Not over the top. Scott, you are just a hop skip and a jump away from me.

Nice Bike Scott!

When I was out riding one day I had stopped for a drink. A guy on a HD drove up and when he got off his bike he was shaking his arms like they were hurting, I asked if HD shook that much that it hurt his arms, he looked at me sternly and asked "Do you have a problem with Harley's" I said No, I don't own one so I have no Problems at all..... Have a nice day.....

Thanks,
I saw this bike in Tennessee on Craigslist and told him I wanted it. Went the next day and drove it back 250 miles. Never drove a bike that big. Leg got cramps at the lights
I did nothing to it but service it. The PO bought all that chrome!!
With 80,000 miles it has scratches, etc but she rides like a Cadillac

Come on Fall.. ready for those leaves to change!!
