Compared to what?

I'm honestly not making fun, but you asked for opinions. I just don't get the whole idea behind modifying a bike to perform below its original design.

But, you will have to take on board that having an extended bike isnt for everyone, same way chrome and bling isnt for everyone.

I like a bike what can turn, beat most cars in a head to head but also look HOT. I like a mix of performance (includes turning and straight line) and looks

Back to the topic, she looks nice but what made you change her?

I think when the bike is made, its made as a good all rounder (peformance/handling/looks) but some people want it to be better in looks wise, or have better peformance, or have better handling etc - so they modify it.

Re: stretched and lowered 954

i really dont care what people say about my bike...its my "design" i rode with an other 954 but his colors were red and black just opposite..and in my opinion it was hidious... do any one want h.i.ds? i have 2 h7 i dont want them... but im actually thinking about putting everything back to stock for a bit..just because i launched it and it just spun so..i duno its either wheelies and cages or quarter mile time and extensions..

You yourself have to decide what you want to go into - she looks a beautiful beast in the last photo...

Re: stretched and lowered 954

I think the extension tacked onto the end of the stock swingarm looks cheesy. It doesn't flow well at all.
