Those nifty reflective decals...

.....That go on the vertical corners of the Adventure cases. Where can one find them, or do I need to cut my own?

Thanks in advance.

If youre looking for the white and red 2" strips then almost any truck stop has them. They come in strips about 14"-16" long and are about half red/half white. Look in the truck Farley section with the CB parts and other stuff. Home Depot and Lowes also have them near the mailboxes and house letters.

Harbor Freight has them. Or search ebay for SOLAS tape... they have it in a ton of colors.

Humvee is where I got mine. A little spendy, but those suckers are bright when just a little light hits them.

Red on the back corners...


And white on the front corners...

I do that too because when you let it off the center stand you have somewhere to plant it. Not just drop it if it goes over center..

That works well..........until you let it off the center stand and the side stand lands on your toes...... advice given to me by a trustworthy source.

Belt and suspenders my friend, belt and suspenders.

I do that to show people my bike is happy to see them.

Seriously, this has been debated ad nauseum before. I've decided to leave it down, so I don't have the bike roll over me when I push it off the centerstand. Yes, I've had the sidestand come down on my toe - I'll never forget where to put my feet again - nothing broken, but hurt like hell for a while.

My apologies to the OP...I didn't mean to threadjack.

I'm close enough to Ontario to smell what they're cooking...the long, cold winters will do things to ya man.
