LOL!!! Less than 1k miles on a 2004 R1... that tells you something about the owner of said "chromed R1".

Augh yes, the effects of Chromes disease, there are three known levels of this ailment.

1) Chromatic reflex. This is the first sign of the illness, the patient shows an uncontrollable desire to bolt a new chrome item to him motorcycle, more and impulse buy and limited to once a month. Easily treatable, just tell them no, put it back.

2) Chromeaholic: The next level, telling the patient no does not work, and they start to buy behind the friends backs, usually they can be found spending all the time on ebay trying to get the next chrome fix. Treatment may require and intervention.

3) Chromeasexual: See the OP's picture of the bike in post one. No cure for this short of a lobotomy. They will keep ruining motorcycle after motorcycle until there broke or stopped.

Chrome blows. I have spent countless hours/dollars removing it from my past vehicles. I find the older people are the more they like chrome. Who knows.

I'm anti-bling ! a few posts before me said it best ... if it don't go Crome it ! .

I wonder if the owner of that crome R1 has a crome grill for his mouth that matches the bike

Chrome on cruisers is acceptable but not on a knee dragger.

Not really. The pipes ... ok. Other than what came stock ... I'll pass. I'm thinking of replacing all that (except the pipes) with painted parts (same color maybe). Maybe two tone. Donno. But chromed plastic? Nah.

Yeah ... JMO ... chromed plastic just seems wrong. Triple chromed metal? Yeah that's what it is all about. Even though it means add weight, that's the only way I'd do it. On my bike, not much to chrome. Besides, a half ton of bike (without me) is enough.

Chrome everything and hit it with heat. With the proper technique you can get a nice blue.

I think it looks pretty damn cool when the whole bike is done in it. I wouldn't do the brake rotors though. Looks like something the Silver Surfer would ride.
