Well, first of all, the logical fallacy in your OP is that of false choice. You essentially equate farkles with the touratech catalog. This is misguided at best, and laughable in reality. To farkle is to make small modifications to your bike to increase its utility. Like removing the kickstand sensor on your bike so that when you land a little air, and centripetal force causes the kickstand to move downward a little bit, it doesn't momentarily kill spark to your motor.
Or, cutting the opening on your airbox to allow more air, etc. When I think "farkle", I certainly don't think of blowing a house payment on touratech crap.
Just my $.02
