why us boys do it?

Recommended Posts

Ya know, I just got that new 07 sm and sure I would like to make it go faster but why do most of us guys take a brand new toy and tear it apart and start putting things on it that you just paid big bucks for at the dealer that already has those things on it???? We take a brand new carb off to put a $500 carb on it??? We take a brand new exhaust off to put a brand new $400 exhaust on it???? so on and so on! Wouldn't it be nice if we could special order our toys from the dealer with what we want on it from the getgo!:bonk:

Because we can:thumbsup: :bonk::naughty: , besides, what else would we spend our money on, something responsible like a 401K or kids college fund:confused: :D

Yes... but in my case I would have needed to consult an Oracle to figure out what I wanted a year after buying it.

My use cases along with what I'm learning are still morphing...

I just get bored and start messing with stuff. First thing that should be mandatory take off POS item is the rear "Scooter" style tail light assembly with the god awful black mud/water guard. Next would be the black upper chain guard.

In my case, I'm learning alot by doing mods.

And When you pull back on that throttle after doing some mods, you know it's all because of you.

I thought Eddie had sold some brand new bikes with fresh mods from where he works??? I remember that post about 6 months ago -- another big motor is born -- or something like that.

Where are you at in Ohio? Maybe we could meet up and swap rides. I would like to ride your stock bike to compair to mine that has several engine mods. I kind of pieced mine together one change at a time and forgot what my bike was like in "stock" form. Its almost an addiction, once you start its hard to stop.

Most all of the responses above apply for me.

Because I can

Because it is therapy for me, I like wrenching, it’s almost instant gratification

Because I have had MODITIS for many years now. Nothing I own remains stock for long.. Toy Hauler, Bikes, 05 mustang, and the wife’s daily driver F350 Crew Cab Long Bed , PSD.

I like wrenching and building, I have the tools and ability to do all that plus fabricate, weld, ect ect. Building my last trailer was an exercise in, Fun. I saved very little in $$ but ended up with a one off, heavy duty 4 bike trailer that had all the custom bits I wanted built by myself and a friend in just a few days, And it needed nothing added on once it went out the shop door.
