Default Definition of the term "full dresser"

Is this term derived from the bike being fully dressed as in all the bags ans whatnot or does the term dresser come from all the bags and whatnot actually being a dresser like the one in your bedroom full of clothes.

Default RE: Definition of the term "full dresser"

Full-Dress touring motorcycles are generally characterized by extremely large fairings and bodywork compared to other forms of tourers, the integration of hard luggage into the design of the motorcycle (often including both saddlebags and a top-mounted box), very large displacement, torque-rich engines, and a very upright, comfortable riding position. Additionally, standard and optional amenities on full-dress tourers often encompasses equipment not normally offered on other motorcycles, such as complete stereos (AM/FM plus CD or cassette is standard, and now satellite radio is becoming more common), heated seats and hand-grips, GPS navigation systems, selective venting, power windshields, electrically controllable windshield, and for certain models in certain model-years, such oddities as integrated air compressors, air conditioning and air bags. Full-dress tourers are designed specifically for riding on pavement, although they may be taken onto hard, compacted dirt roads; they are specifically not designed for off-road duties

OMG... dude.....

It means a bike that is "dressed out" or "dressed up", ie; saddlebags, fairing, trunk, etc.

Each time I see that Avatar I seem to fall into some time warp, loose time and forget what the heck I was reading about in the first place. I think there must be some hidden hypnotic voodoo going on there. -r
