    Why did you chop it up? Did you lose your Devo helmet so no longer matched?

    Actually I like the style, for me looks better than the stock plastics. Good idea.

    Originally there was a crack in the front lower plastic so rather then replace it I just took it off. I ended up loving the exposed radiator look so much I decided to take more of the front plastic off. Then one day the roads were icy and a not so talented rider on a ducati streetfighter slid out and hit me on the left side and cracked the side plastic so after a day of hanging out with my friend and his vespa cut down i took out my hack saw and went to work.

    He hit me at about 40mph. We both got up free of injury besides a couple scratches. His bike refused to start mine started no problem. I thought it was pretty ironic.
