I find the idea that you are customizing your bike, gun, car or anything else when you buy something in a box or bag and bolt it on annoying.
my opinion if you can buy it and bolt it on it's not custom its
accessorized. If you cut, drill, weld or fabricate something that didn't
exist before its customized.
I have added a Suzuki Sissy Bar
and a MC Enterprises Full Engine Guard to my 2005 GZ250. This is not
customized. I also have stainless steel saddle bag guards that were
fabricated for the GZ250. Since these are basically just copies of the
Suzuki versions I do not consider this customized.
I if I were to
fabricate mounting brackets/mount points and add my own hard bags that I
made from something else, this I would consider customized.
Changing handle bars I consider to be adjusting you bike to fit you or perhaps in some cases (ape hangers) a fashion statement.
Anyone care to weigh in on this?
I would hate to think I'm the only one who feels this way.
