stretched is for ppl who are afraid of turns


eh really tho, i would never have a stretched bike, it just kills all the engineering they put into the bike to do what its designed for, railing


but if u never plan on tracking it or riding twistys, stretch it if u want

I like race looking bikes, I wouldn't stretch my bike. But it's something different to see.

Like said earlier, if it's not a blown busa or something of the like....

Looks vs. Function. Choose one.

Unless it's on a drag bike, it looks silly. And +1 to no more turns. Who wants that?

usually people with busas that can't really turn choose to stretch their bikes.... on a small 750 its just useless unless you are going for the look of a drag bike....

If you dont like turns and you like the stretched look, then do it. It is all about what you want out of your bike.

I think everything has been said! if you stretch it, it severely hurts the engineering of the bike. But if its just for looks go for it!

Do what you like and your style of riding. If you are a straightline rider, stretch it. If you like to take corner fast, leave it stock.
