Wazzup w/ all the SKULLS...?

Been meaning to start a thread like this for awhile...

what's w/ the cruiser guys and skulls...? -

I've seen "ghost-skulls paint jobs", skulls helmets, skull face-shields (for the 'helmet-less' to keep their faces warmer...?), skull jackets, skull license-plate surrounds, skull levers, etc, etc.

I just don't get it.

Maybe the old Smothers Brothers song line will explain it. "I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy."

Real light skulls on my helmet. Its so it looks. . . lets just say Bad A#$!

Skulls are suppost to be scary and kinda like watch out death is near!

Kinda lam and they are on the way out of style I believe.

Some people like Viking stuff also.

If you have to ask.

Were you seriously asking, or were you just looking to start a bashing thread?

I mean what's up with wearing sport team jerseys, energy drink logos, little horses playing polo, etc.

Nope. I don't see any issue w/ wearing a logo. I just can NOT understand the fascination w/ skulls...!

If you want to understand it, I suggest doing a little searching on google and look up the history of the use of skulls in culture.
