Is there anything better

than farkling out your new bike? I just got a 2012 Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200, and have enjoyed ordering and installing new accessories almost as much as I've enjoyed riding it!

Am I ok? Do I have a problem or is this normal? Do I need to see someone?

Perfectly normal in my experience.

I'm in the same situation with my new to me 2009 K1300GT.

I've already added a few farkles but the expensive ones are yet to be purchased, a Russel Day Long Saddle and an Aerosheild wind screen.

Have fun!

It's not normal and yes you do have a problem. However, you are among like minded friends here.

There is a lot of advantages to keeping a bike stock. So there are some things better to answer your question.

Yes (according to Conan): "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women ."

Well, yeah, there is that.


But those wind deflectors in the catalogue are pretty sweet...hmmm. Total world domination, or additional weather protection? Let me think....

Don't do it!

Not a sound investment.



Probably why I look for all the cheap fuckin' "farkles" or home made stuff.
