I don't like people gawking at me when I'm riding. I'd much rather them have their eyes on the road.

No offense, but I'm pretty sure any chick on a bike does'nt need a mohawk to get date offers. Chick on bike = magnet.

Thats a little different than adding something provocative like a mohawk.

It looks dumb when people intentionally try to match there bike. Even worse when they are in a car.

Just cuz someone looks stupid, doesn't always mean that they are.

So... don't judge a rider by his mohawk.

if you dont like the hawk OH WELL GET THE F OVER IT. why is that so many people judge other people on materialistic reasons. always hating on bikes, types of gear, mohawks, colors, stretched or not stretched. why dont you take the time to get to know someone before you start hating so much. cause there might be a time when you **** up and that stretched bike with the guy or girl with a mohawk helmet might be there to help

Tell ya what, If I'm on my bike riding... right I want to be an attention . Because I know the excuse that comes for the accident isn't gonna be 'I didn't see im..'

Mohawk, Headlight modulator... every little bit that might help prevent me frmo becoming a statistic. <shrug> why not... I rode 2 months with a pair of Jack antenna on the back. (Apparently they decided to jump off at some point).

The guy with the darn zebra fur... that bike stands out, people aren't likely to forget it...

and , I figure if your head is so far up your that you're gonna judge someone because of like mohawks on helmets. I've got no use for knowing you anyway.

Because there's too many people in this world, and way too many of them suck. I don't have the time nor energy to sort through them all. So if simple classification/stereotyping happens to lump a few of the good ones in with the bad ones...........oh well.

Mohawks aren't my thing, but don't know if I subscribe fully to his thought process.

Discuss.
sounds like the old school harley mentality: "no self respecting motorcyclist would be caught dead with a helmet on".
