    Question Hiding cables?

    Hi all forgive my flurry of posts, I've got lost of newbie questions.

    Wow I really like the M50, it just seems such a handsome bike right out of the box. I was wondering though why they didn't try to hide some of the cables better. With that sweet front end, I think it would look so much nicer if things were cleaned up. Has anyone come up with any clever ways of hiding the cables up front on these bikes?

    Thanks!

    Because it's a $7k bike. Same reason the seam on the tank is just out there for all to see.

    AFAIK, noone has bothered to hide all that stuff.
    For me personally, I'd rather just be out there riding

    LOL! Good point, you get what you pay for. I'd rather ride too, but can hardly quell my urge to tinker, I had a Bandit before and that gave me the mod bug bad!

    LOL,
    I had a 2005 Bandit 1200S before my 08 M50 also.

    So you know of what I speak! Hey the M50 is a great bike isn't it? I am really pleasantly surprised. I was just hoping to get something comfortable for me to ride regularly and find this bike is great fun!

    That's why it's so fun to mod.
