I was looking at all the scratched up plastic on my bike the other day, the dented up muffler, the gravel burned bark busters, and so on. Anyways I was going to get new plastics and graphics to make the bike shiny again. Anyway as I was looking at the battle scars of on my bike, I remembered the memories of going into a 90% right hand corner going way to fast and going down. I remembered falling straight down ten feet into a tank-trap having my drz 400 bouncing off my head. Then the light came on I earned these scars and so did my bike so I thought to myself, plastics who needs that, it's winter time it is time for a new tire. So what is thought out there, are battle scars on your bike cool? Do these scars show signs of hard earned lessons? Or do you see it as the trash coming out to play in a sport he can't afford. I want to hear from both sides on this one guys. my thought of it has always been, if you don't go chrome it!
