Extended Swingarms.... Why?

Okay I know you jokers like to joke and this message is easy pickings for a joke but...
Try not too, okay? PWEEESEE!

Serious what is going on with the extended swing arms on street motorcycles?

What is going on in the heads of such persons? Do some persons really think it looks better? Assuming you are not going a to a drag strip is there any performance improvement ? Is it a cry for help? Was there a bike in a movie that made everyone go crazy for this fashion? Should the gov't step in with a support number and help group?
