Once upon a time there was a 2004 Honda 750 Aero. He has a life that he won't complain about. He was a showroom model; that was something he knew other bikes wished for. He was just a little embarrassed... some other motorcycles in the showroom had many more aftermarket parts on, and our 750 Aero felt underdressed. One day, a girl walked into his life. She was in the showroom that the 750 Aero hung out in. She was walking toward him with some parts in her hand... could they be for him? He was excited, but he wouldn't let himself get his hopes up because she didn't have any tools in her hands. She sat down on the floor next to him and opened the parts that she was holding. From his angle, they looked like turn signal lenses. His heart leapt! Now he would have a light bar with sweet lenses. The girl read through the directions, looked at the underside of his turn signals (how naughty) and went to get the right tools for the job. Now, if you ask her, she will freely admit that on a scale of one to ten, her mechanical ability is around two. Negative two, to be specific. The Aero could tell. He watched her lay the tools out next to the parts that were going to be added. First the screwdriver: it twisted the screw from the underside of the turn signal to loosen the stock lens. "Hold on to that screw! You'll need it later!" the Aero thought. She set the screw aside. "Good. She listened." She grabbed the lens that was on the turn signal in front of her. The Aero braced itself, and closed its eyes (this was going to hurt). After a minute, he squinted, and realized the lens was already off and the bulb was out. But she was coming at him with pliers! "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!" he screamed. She took out the heat shield and said nothing, because she didn't speak motorcyclese. "I need that!" he thought. She didn't seem to care as she put in the new yellow bulb. In it went. After the metal thread piece was moved from the old lens to the new bezel, she looked at the housing. "Put the top in first! Put the top in first! Put the top in first!" the Aero told her. She listened again. She angled the bezel so the top was lined up with the housing and slid the bottom half of the bezel in slowly. Once the bezel was flush, she put the screw back in to secure the smoke lens with deep dish bezel in place. The 750 wiggled its bulb. The bezel had a heat shield in it! She didn't need the stock heat shield! He had worried for nothing. The Aero patted her back as she moved on to the other side. She did everything as she did before, only she didn't line up the top first when she went to install the bezel. SNAP! The Aero was in such PAIN! How could she do this to HIM!?? He thought they had a connection! She looked at the underside of his turn signal!! All of his trust was betrayed. A part of the small clip from the stock turn signal housing had broken, and it hung on only by a small sliver of chrome. She gasped. She re-angled the bezel and installed it successfully, though the damage had been done. She apologized to the Aero and got some super glue. She put one tiny dot on the small piece of plastic, and re-attached it. It still hurt, but it was healing. He was angry at her and thought she deserved a mechanical rating of negative three billion. She was excited by how it turned out. She liked his light bar with the deep dish bezels so much she decided to put bezels on his rear turn signals too. Those went on without a hitch. The Aero adjusted her mechanical rating to negative two again in his mind. She wasn't all bad. Plus, he now had two more parts installed on him. He was thankful for that. Now he could start taunting the other motorcycles in the showroom. "Take that White Bike!! You think you're so special! No one has put any parts on YOU!!" So ends the tale of a 750 Aero and the bezels it loved.
