I always find it hilarious when a metric rider removes all their badges, name plates, etc. Why? Be happy with what you have ...
I removed the badges from my wifes Windstar because it made a huge difference in how it looked.
No more Windstar or model designation on the back, it looks 1000% better.
And I've done the same to many other vehicles, for me, it is not the brand, but the asthetics.
Left them all on the 944, seems like someone actually spend some time making sure they looked right -
On a similar note, it did not used to be totally uncommon to swap badges - GS/KZ1000/1100 and GS/KZ750/650 side cover emblems were many times direct replacements for each other - more than one incredibly quick 750's roaming around in the olden days.
What I really think is fun are the "turbo" and other emblems added to vehicles that are not "turbo" or "R" models, but hey, whatever!
Back on topic, a lot of people used to paint over the Harley emblem, custom personalized paint jobs, back in the day when it was more about the rider than the brand.......
