Do you have state inspections that require signals? If not are you proficient enough to ride single handed as you use hand signals for every lane change and turn? Even without signals (mandated or otherwise) a cop can still ticket you for illegal lane changes/turns if you don't use hand signals.
I rode without signals for a couple years and it got old extending the left arm for signaling every intention, and a lot of people out there don't even know what the arm extensions even represent.
"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.
