accessory question

Not sure if this is in the right section but here it goes anyhow. I have seen guys with ape hangers and they have a long braided rope I think hanging off the lever with a lock on one end. Does anyone know what and where I can get one? I like it but no idea what they are called so I cant even google a pic. Thank you

It's called a get back whip.

Just a hint - if you elect to get one, do not select a two-color combination that matches a motorcycle club's "colors". That can often be interpreted as disrespect for that club... not a smart thing to do.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

that would probably eliminate every possible color out there.

Yep, you're probably right and who even knows all of the M/Cs out there .

If I decided to ride with a get-back, I'd either go with all black braid or at least check into members of all the local Confederations of Clubs 1st and NOT display it out-of-state.

Get it in matching or contrasting colors to your bike so it is obvious why you have those colors. I have one and I got it in orange and brown (I don't think I have seen an MC in those colors).

I think you're right. That color-match seems like a good idea and indeed, maybe any solid color would be okay too.

Crap, I got one in Laffing Devils pink and yellow. Better run out and get that off post haste!

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

True, a get back can be a liability, not much purpose nor real use, match bike is alright or a garage hanger. Perception, perception
