It just seems that these bikes have all fake chrome on them, it takes away from the feeling of having a real chromed bike, instead a fake plastic chrome bike? Just a feeling I have about my M109R????
Sorry if I was unclearppridgen1 said:so your saying the real chrome will outlast the real chromed plastic parts......because i used to rent on of my business spaces to a chrome refinishing shop and it seems like they had plenty of work to do just refinishing those everlasting quality "REAL" chrome parts,why, because they have real metal under the chrome that still corrodes thus pitting and sheding the chrome. Nothing lasts forever but plastic doesn't corrode. :bigthumbsup: :doorag:
I think it depends on who you talk to. I do not feel my bike was cheaply made. It was engineered efficiently.rs87277 said:It just seems that these bikes have all fake chrome on them, it takes away from the feeling of having a real chromed bike, instead a fake plastic chrome bike?Â Just a feeling I have about my M109R????
Chadx said:That is the beauty of aftermarket. For those that want to replace various pieces parts with what they personally prefer. Some people still just prefer various forms of metal over plastic/polymers whether that be in motorcycles, cars, pistol frames, cameras, or whatever. To each their own. In all of the items listed, personally prefer the use of plastic and polymers to benefit cost, weight savings, corrosion resistance, and often times, much stronger for the weight. But I support, without slamming, someone if their personal preference is billet or chromed metal, etc. That may be their priority and preference. To that I say modify away and enjoy. I won't tell you to switch to a HD just because you like billet and chrome. But me personally, I'd love to shave another 40 or 50 lbs off every bike I own.
