Alright I know we all love chrome. I know I do to an exstent. Theres nothing like chrome, liquid almost in appearance its smooth cool to the touch feel and just all together coolness factor. I was out trying to dig up info for a member and I just had to stop off and look at some bikes. Well I ran across the one below. My question is simple. I know not everyone is sensetive to light, but my oddness aside, how in the holy blue jeans could you ride this thing in the daylight? The glare off of the tank would be blinding. White motorcycles are bad, but chrome, now thats just blinding. Imagine you fellow southern folk leaving that sucker sit in a parkinlot for a few hours in august

Is that street legal? I'd figure the cops would pull you over.The coolness factor is between your legs. Cold steel, makes my N/mM freeze just thinking about it. Steve

Its legal, theres nothing illegal about it. Old BSA's, Nortons, Triumphs etc had partially chrome tanks so its not new. There are a bunch of guys throughout the US and canada that have had chrome bikes, I just have always wonderd how the bloody hell you can see with the glare. Its not really important, I just brought it up because it was 4 am and I needed a typing break.

Talking

looks cool, but if you gave it the gas you might slide off. Saw a guy riding on the back of a bike many years ago who stood up to comb his hair to impress the girls. The driver took off and left him standing bull legged right in the middle of the street. The girls wet their pants laughing at the poor dude. It wasn't ME I am too smart to get on one of them thangs!!!!!!!!!

Cool

There was some mention that you can cook your eggs on that. I actually rode a Triumph years ago that was chromed and it is almost unbearable in the summer heat to drive that. The reflection of the sun is always aimed at you in the high sun. <img src="graemlins/pain.gif" border="0" alt="[pain]" /> But it is cool to look at. Mine has very little chrome right now.
