Unless you are 10 years old and riding a Schwinn Stingray, apehangers are nothing but funny. Putting them on a Bonneville should result in an immediate, unconditional ban from this forum. If we can't agree on this, I don't think we can agree on anything.

Most dangerous mod you can make to the handling is a girlfriend over a 150lbs....

One lad didn't like the look of his turn signals and so removed them. Removed, mind you, without being replaced. He's trusting that law enforcement in northern Texas will turn a blind eye. So far, they have.
In Texas you are not required to have signal lights if you use hand signals. You have to have a light over your license plate, but no signal lights.

Putting on a small discrete taillight is asking for trouble. If people can see you are stoopping them you risk being rear ended.
