BIKER’S MADNESS MALADY

Eghad!  You thought you were in control of your life.  Things seemed to be going OK.  Your bike’s been running fine.

And then…it dawned on you.

You had succumbed to the bikers’ madness malady: Motorcycle Farkles Disease.

In retrospect, and early on, there was no thought of anything awry.  Heck, lots of motorcycle enthusiasts buy and install accessories, called farkles (also spelled farkels), to customize their bikes.  The word itself seems pretty benign: Farkles is a combination of “function” and “sparkle.”

TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE FARKLES

Farkels can include all manner of nifty gadgets, including…

Radar Detectors

Global Positioning System (GPS) Receivers

Heated Grips

Music, Radios and Audio Systems

Wireless Communication Systems

♦ And of course lots of SHINY THINGS

… to name barely a few.  The list is endless.

MOTORCYCLE OBSESSION OUT OF CONTROL

It may be arguable when the malady should have been spotted and addressed, but certainly at the point when the obsession to buy things to personalize your bike and/or to make it more suitable for your individual riding needs included owning more accessories than could fit on all the bikes you do not own anymore, and all the bikes you may or may not own in the future.  Somewhere in there a little mental alarm bell should have given a jingle.

But even if your mental jingler was out of whack, it’s hard to argue that the madness had not extended beyond the fringes when your investment in farkles surpassed that of your house.

All of this is indicative of a disease in need of a standard remedy: You need to ride more!
