Default old school fire extinguisher

Was thinking about getting one of these for my deluxe. I just wanted to know if any one has one on their bike? If so can you post pics. Also where do you think it should be mounted??

I thought it was just military bikes that they installed fire extinguishers on.
They really would have 'em attached to civilian bikes, you'd roll out of the dealer with?
Imagine the liability involved now days if a manufacturer admitted that the chance of their product catching fire was so great, they felt the need to include a fire extinguisher?
