Nick,
Let me ask Jen if they have it at her work. She works at 3M and can get stuff pretty cheap.

That would be much appreciated!

If not I can get some stickers off of this thread which would look nice:

Thanks for the feedback guys. Much appreciated. boardrider, unfortunately my tail plate is aluminum. Should probably get it re-anodized, but for that price might as well get a new one in black and sell the one I have. But I like the look/form of it. Not too big not too small.

Rhino line it ?

Ok, the deal with aluminum and powder coating is prepping the metal so it doesn't outgass. While it is really fairly easy to do I personally haven't yet and would rather not experiment on someone else's parts

DIY anodizing?

Not hardly cost effective

I have the galaxy S4 and love it. No complaints as of yet. I also have the galaxy tab 7" and use it in place of my laptop, which is now a $700 paper weight lol

I went to Home Depot and WallyWorld last night and found some 3M silver to use tell I get some black 3M tape. Went right on to the E21's after some rubbing alcohol passes.

3M silver 2" wide is uber bright!

I also found a good first aid kit that will live with my tools in the side cases!

Power coat it. I know a friend of a friend who lives up north and I know he can do aluminum because I asked because at one time I was looking at getting a Aluma trailer to pull behind the Wing but I got a Breeze instead.

Nick,
Was that you turning south onto 100 from 55? I wasn't the cruiser behind you but a couple lengths back. Givi's look great.

Jen didn't find black reflective tape in the '3M Store' so I'm glad you found something that worked out.

Life, while camping this weekend (if yer not at the Guzzi rally) is all about race fuel, late braking and throttle wide open. Woot!



It is not to late, hurry to BIR for the CRA.

Yes that was me, I had to fight to get in that damn turn lane! lol

Thanks for the compliment, I'm happy how the bike is becoming more "me"

Also thanks for looking into finding the tape for me friend!
