I am totally chrome trimmed - open piped - bad ass wanna be in halloween leathers - fringed - and ape hangered out. This whole "Cruiser" thing is beginning to look like a Village People video gone horribly wrong. My 2 cents is - quit trying to look like a parade float and just enjoy the bike.
From the "Does this bike make me look fat?" crowd came a desperate need for a cost effective way to increase the fairing and windscreen of bikes as their owners mature. As our society has become more obese fringe will take on an ever increasing role. Fringe on golf carts, boats, etc.
I could puke but I don't have a big bucket handy. Motorcycling is becoming more and more about showing off with no skills and techcniques involved. Rather boring really, no wander the bone heads kill themselves left and right, I guess Darwin is laughing away!!!
I couldn't find the box for "I'm stupid enough to buy this *****" either
I'm not real convinced that a fringed windshield is going to make some geek on a parade-float-o-glide anymore aerodynamic or "less buffeted by trucks". 'Course I wouldn't know because trucks don't pass me
