What do you think I need for my bike?



I was just wondering what you guys think I should or need to get for my bike. I'm not going to be getting anything that soon, but I just want to know what you guys think.

I was thinking I won't need anything for awhile, but I was just wondering for the future.

Slams are wayy too big for me. The rise on my bars now is 7" and they feel comfortable. And the Slams are like 28" wide.

most of my bikes are pretty stealth...the folks that wouldn't steal them (I hope) have a pretty good idea, given the components, but the most bike thieves don't have a clue...just wish I could find some replacement 'Magna' or 'Huffy' (newer style) decals!

I would paint it and strip it of it's logos. I agree with whoever said that first.

Get some ODI longnecks. Best. grips. ever.
