I don't inherently object to you doing a cafe theme.

there are many aspects of cafe I can appreciate. I dunno what your plan is

things i like:

big round light front fairings like the ltd ones

or actually square ones too, front fairings are cool

low/mid rise bars, look good, better than tall stocks but still comfy and classic vs. drops.

long seats - especially the maxi cigar ones. maybe a little hump in the back.

things i dislike that get called "cafe"

dropped bars - especially just flipped lowrise. eww.

hideous "custom" cafe seats

chopped off rear fenders

it can be done well. it can be done uniquely, or very stereotypically, or it can just be really half-assed and awful

do what you do

i will hate accordingly.
