Poser perfect!
Maybe I should not make such a comment. Maybe good for someone with a bad knee, who may not want to give up the image.

Well, those French guys from EMD sure make some great parts, and they are great to party with, but this one is not for me!!

I had a W650 with both a REAL Kicker and Electric Start. They should never had gone out of style as an additional option. I would prefer both installed on the same bike. I actually used it for two causes.
1. To look cool
2. If you have a dead battery which happens you can still get going
I think there is an EPA reason and extra cost why they are not installed anymore.

Agreed, but clowns make themselves pretty well known anyway.

Might make a good theft deterrent, other than that, not sure the purpose. Probably better and cheaper ways to deter theft, though.
