Performance or looks?

So what is most important to you - performance or looks? Do you spend your money on making the bike look good or spend on things to make it go fast and handel well?

IMHO...
1. Suspension & Tires at the same time, if you have crappy rubber get a set of PPs and don't look back. I waited almost 900 miles to get this done. Should be done asap.
2. Steering Stabilizer, this mod is easy and really makes a difference, wish I had done it first thing.
3. Frame, swingwarm and front frame sliders. You know why.
4. PCIII, exhaust etc....
5. Now go for Blingage, DB dark smoke windscreen, seat cowl, FE, powdercoat, signals, etc.

Performance is a must!!! I can not upgrade myself, but I can practice. I know I do not reach the moto's full potential... so I upgrade to make it a little easier for me ;)

Canyons and cruises...


Performance doesn't mean much to me on a bike.. As long as it is comfortable, and fun. My opinion.. I build cars to race, and my bike is for cruising..

It's nice to have a nice looking bike, but you can also go too far. So the mix of both is my vote.

i'm mostly in it for looks without overdoing it like some of those crazy Busa guys with the extended swingarms and dvd/tv. if i wanted performance out of the box, i'd prolly go for the 1k instead and mod the hell out of it!

My bike is for fun. I mostly ride canyons and the track, but am not a racer. Any stock sportbike can outperform me (and probably most people on this forum) and I have no need to go 160mph or hold title to the best dyno run. I am not out to impress anyone with blingage. The popo seems to prefer the stock look and I have no desire to attact their attention.

I tend to go for practical and/or functional modifications rather than performance and/or blingage -- things such as protective devices (e.g., various sliders), tires, Stompgrip, cabling to support A/V recording, Speedohealer, removal of excess and/or unnecessary parts and stickers, etc. I consider some modifications (e.g., replacing stock signals) to be a practical modification (smaller and thus less likely to be damaged in a get-off), with the added bonus that they also tend to look better -- I probably wouldn't replace them if it were for looks alone.
