The trick with all the attention drawing modifications is not to draw attention with them.
I've only been pulled over once for equipment issues (side mount plate, cop claimed he couldn't see my tail light 45 degrees to my right rear/3 lanes over...whatever). In the end he had nothing to cite me for and let me go...as the law here states "the tail light must be visible from 100 feet away and brake light 300 feet away" and for that, it is.
"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.
