The very rare WRB

Default What's up with bikers on choppers who feel the need to take off their blinkers?

They do that, wear no helmet, have the loudest lawnmower on two wheels. They will rarely even try a hand signal, and if they do, it's the wrong kind done halfass. A lot of noise, attitude and latent homo erotic chaps is all they seem to ever sport.

harleys are annoying as hell, especially customs/choppers. Get a frigging muffler on that thing, you 50 y.o. 'rebels'

Stupid people should try to attract less attention.

Because usually the factory blinkers look like Prince Charles' ears hanging off the sides of the bike. I did this for many years but realized the err of my ways after trying to follow a motorcyclist friend who had integrated his signals into the taillight, making it almost impossible to figure out if he was turning or stopping at any given time. Back to the factory signals for me....

i think the thought is that louder exhaust = people will notice them and not hit them. At the same time I think its stupid that they get away with that and I cant run open exhaust headers heh heh.

You got it all right when you said Homo Erotic.
It is a wang thing, these men want to ride giant chrome cocks, with as little protection as possible.

Safety gear is important to riders, i have a very good feeling that all this tough guy bull**** will go right out the window once they lay their bikes down and have 10lbs of tissue and blood sanded off them on to the highway.

I can't stand the whole chopper thing since Jesse James and the Discovery Channel made it huge. Now it seems like mostly yuppies who wear leather on the weekends.

i hate that trend. If i see one more person get in to a beat up accord with two kid seats in the back while pimping double west coast choppers stickers on the rear window.. i may vomit up my ribcage.

It is a silly trend that a few people are seriously cashing in on.

Some of those custom bikes are sellign for over 150,000

While sort of true, that only really works if the car is behind the motorcycle where the exhaust is pointing. I can cruise all day in front of a harley, or with one in my blind spot, and not really hear it over the radio played at moderate volume.

Once I get behind them its a totally different story.

Very true. But if the signals are that bad for you, do everyone a favor and maybe get one of these.

One time I was on the highway in a semi-rural area and an experienced chopper rider put up his left hand to indicate that he was about to swtich lane to the right. Several yards behind him was a noob in a touring bike with a passenger who thought the chopper was doing a biker-to-biker wave and almost lost control giving him a return wave.

I don't know, but I have decided people on motorcycles are the worst drivers on earth. They speed like rampant, and the cops don't (can't) do a damn thing about it. They weave in and out of traffic like the other cars don't even exist. They rev their engines for absolutely no reason AT A STOPLIGHT. I think they are compensating for something.
