In reference to motorcycles. a geegaw is a part fitted to a bike that is not standard OEM equipment. They can be performance enhancing , asthettically pleasing or otherwise or just plain old bling. I'm sure that somewhere in Australia there is an overfunded social research program on "Geegaw envy among the working poor" Confucious say He who has the most Geegaws wins.

Actually, I'd never heard of Geegaws until it was posted here. I thought "bling" and "farkles" were the go to words for this. But then, what do I know? I live under a rock.

The Doctor my Doctor says I suffer with HOIGOF - Highly Opinionated Intolerant Grumpy Old Fart, and OCMD - Obsessive Compulsive Modification Disorder. That means off the shelf bits and cheque book specials don't count,  Real men design and create their own stuff. Oh, and I don't give a fuck what you think. Smile Smile Smile

So, doctor, your geegaw count is about to miraculously appear within these hallowed pages?

Charlie, you have such a way with words - looking forward to rum 'n rapport in a few short weeks, Yessiree

Gee-gaws indeed. I thought they were reserved for Bangkok taxi drivers and Hindu Temples until I visited this site.

Anyway, by Charlie's definition it seems like Bellagios would leave Grisos for dead here, but who's counting?

But no-one has answered the question of pronunciation!!!!! Question

Is it GEE GAW as in "GEE whiz, my JAW is sore from talking too much"

or GEE GAW as in "GHEE is used in cooking, but GORE is not"

We've always pronounced it GEE GAW.

I concur with Wayne. Phonetically it is clarified butter and the thing with fangs.

Melted butter and blood and guts. Sounds like roadkill stew.
