Default Whats up with Tassels on your bars?

Seriously... what's the connection between 3 year old girls and 40+ year old men?

I see it everywhere except any of my staff's bikes.

Not TROLLING either, I just want a straight up answer on this. I don't get it.

I think it comes from the 60's - 70's, when hippies rode Harleys. Had to match the tassled leather jackets. The tassles on the little girl's bikes prolly came from same era. Mine are there simply because they were on it from the previous owner. I'm kinda of the mind that I need to leave something from each previous owner on my bike. It's still got the police switches on the handle bars from the time it was in service with the Ft. Lauderdale Sherrif's Department, the first 'owner'. At least I removed the larger ones from the grips. They do tend to whip your arms, especially at highway speeds.

If somebody doesn't like my tassles, all they need to do is walk up to me and call me a ƒĜ...
