I like all that dress for success on the Roadie windshield. (just my personal preference)
With that being said, I certianlly respect the opinion of one to choose an alternate route.
Lots of ultra cool RoadStars pictured on this web site. Most would not be practical for me with my lust for high mileage road trips, but I admire the time paitenance, skill and craftmanship that goes into some of the bikes I saw pictured here in the past.
The basic Roadie configurations would be pretty boring if we did not branch out into our individual preferences
