why does Honda feel the need to F'up the whole back end of their motorcycles with these HUGE ugly ass light assemblies? Just think of how much better that ass-end would look with a cat eye tucked under the fender and either integrated blinkers or move em to the fender struts...that's what I'd do anyways...

Nice.
How 'bout some pics of the new machine?

I kind of agree with DCopp on the taillights, but that's why the aftermarket exists. We all think we're Davinci.

Shadow accessories

FYI - Cobra now has some accessories for the RS. They've been out a bit, but finally added some pictures. Not a fan of the tall sissy bar but the rest seems ok.

Here

They already have some neat stuff for our bikes...more to come I'm sure.

The taller bar will enable you to carry a larger bag/more area to secure "stuff" to..to each their own.
