The question is what do you think it will do for you?

Will it keep the flies and other bugs from bouncing off you chest and face?

In the rain will it keep you somewhat dry when you get caught in the rain?

Will it keep you somewhat warm on those chilly days you are out and about?

If you think it will just make you look cooler, go for it my friend!!

I don't know what it will do for me? That is
why I am asking.

Putting the 'Cool' factor aside, [how]will it do
all of those other things that you brought up?

It Won't, that's why I brought them up.

Are you going for functionality or looks is the question here?

Tassels are only worth while if used with Ape Hanger Handle Bars and Exhaust Pipes at the same level over your head. As you can see by his example.

I know, it may be a difficult decision to make but, go with your gut feeling. Tassels or no tassels are for you to decide.

If you decide to go with the same length of tassels he has with standard Handle Bars. Just a suggestion here, try not to run over them for you won't like the outcome! :o :shock:
