    Can we see what you’ve built, ‘Dan’? Gotta love keyboard warriors who don’t have the bottle to put their heads and names above the parapet and just sit at their screen, seething with jealousy at those people who have actually achieved something. ‘Dan’ or whatever your name is: get a life.

    I’ve used Kuryakyn products on my bikes in the past, in my opinion they have great ideas but their products don’t last. Quality control is lacking.
