Default I'm gonna go broke in a hurry

I bought Hardtail Choppers Big Dukes for my Blackline, their goes $300. Then Todds came out with the top clamp to use risers and regular bars, $259 for the top clamp, $95 for risers, and $320 for the RSD bars. I put the Big Dukes on before I changed out the Clamp and checked how they felt. They felt really good and comfy. Now that I got the RSD bars on, I don't really like the comfort of them. They are nice bars and look bad ***, but they just aren't that comfortable for me. I do like the looks with Todds top clamp and risers. So, now I have almost a grand into this project and still don't have the right handlebars. Nor do I have the cables, brakelines or wires extended. Why am I so picky?

If I had back all the $$ I spent on mods & stuff for bikes I no longer own,or didn't like & changed back, I'd be too busy with all the 25 year old hotties I would have to even post on this forum.

25 year old hottie, that's more dangerous than a motorcycle!

Some mods work out better than others. I'm already thinking I should have gotten round foot pegs vs the flat pegs. I keep adjusting the angle of them trying to get them in the exact right place.

And still have some sanity left.



The only way to avoid going broke with mods is to sell your bike. But that isnt even an option so just keep telling yourself its an investment.
