Because it's my bike, and I want (and can afford) the best.
Best answer yet!  No need to justify.

Put my new DID 530 VX chain on today!!
That's the first order of business when I get home next Tuesday...I've got a 102-link 530VX DID chain waiting for me. Then the Lycett seat & Vista Cruise, and Fiona'll be ready for her run up to Sault Ste. Marie.

My son is 3 1/2 right now and the only rule now is don't touch the bike when daddy isn't there.  He doesn't need the burn scars I have.  He does help me wash it already :)

Scott - that is the greatest picture. My son is now 4 and he loves to wash the bike and work in the shop with Dad. We put his name on the sidecar too  :D I am hoping the Bullet will be his first bike when he gets older (except maybe with a café kit ).

Hope they continue to want to do stuff with you guys.  It's fun, especially the billion and one questions.
And really, a $125 chain isn't one of the expensive ones compared to the high end, it's just not a $40 or $50 chain.
