I don't think most guys are going to bother removing all that stuff, unless they know it will fit their next bike. And even then, a guy might decide he wants different farkles, another brand of crash bars, luggage, etc.
Private vehicles, guns and home schooling make the collectivists uneasy. They grant to the individual a degree of independence of action which terrifies the champions of the super state. They do not wish you freedom to move around, to protect yourself, to decide what your children should be taught. Such things reduce the power of the state over the citizen.
