Has anyone else thought of this?
Am I a genius?
Or a dork?

I don't think you're a dork but that the widest chicken strip I've seen outside of KFC.;)

Ride Safe

Oh man, that was cold...:laugh

It is a brilliant use of the sticker, though...

Nice place but hard to see, esp at speed. But that might be what you're after.
And lets leave chickens out of this, OK?

Isn't that hole for cooling though?

Actually, I discussed that with my BMW MasterTech once, and definitely - yes.

That hollow hub, at least on the R1200RT, is part of the cooling matrix for the final drive.

He's always annoyed when someone goes out and buys one of those decorative spinners, and then wonders why they're cooking the FD fluid.

But as to the MOA sticker, glad to see MotorradMike is proud to display, as should we all.

I put mine dead center on the lowest part of my windshield. :german

Not on an R11 -- not a Holy drive.

YEAH! And not only that - there are fingerprints in the dirt on his wheel!:bolt

Come on guys...looks like a new tire just put on over the winter...

Why do you guys always have to find things that aren't supposed to be in the picture?

Thanks Ken but the sad truth is, that tire has 2,000 miles on it. The dirt in the middle is from rolling it round the basement. Maybe it would look better if I wiped it off.

Who am I kidding, I'm a lover not a racer. This bike just doesn't lean over as far as other bikes do.

Mike's probably right.

I dunno Mike. Depends on where you live how wide those strips are. Here in Iowa the roads are mostly VERY straight. Now, in some places that is not the case. I am wondering if some of those that reside in glass houses should be casting stones?

Back to your original question; I think this all comes out to meaning you are Genork.

Roads straight! Understatement. When we lived there years ago the only place I could find curves was to go up to I-80 and ride around the cloverleaf interchanges.

Tough room. It was just a silly little joke (hence the smiley face). My new Florida tires look like that until I can find a curve or two to scrub them in. We sure are getting to be sensitive bunch. I apologise to the OP if he took it to heart.

Dork. Sorry, but you only gave two choices.

I vote no sticker.

If the silliest thing done after going through months of a Canadian Winter is putting the MOA sticker on your rear wheel, you have a much more stable mind than I.
I salute your sanity, sir.:bow

Your bike is now "one of a kind" and certainly worth more as a collectible than a daily rider.

BTW, Don't you dust your wheels? :stick Most anal retentive BMW owners wouldn't even think of posting a picture where you can see a hand print in the wheel dust. :laugh:laugh:laugh


(Removing tongue from cheek now)

Won't winter ever end???:scratch

I wouldn't necessarily categorize myself as an "anal retentive BMW owner"...

Hmmm, would using a dental tool and toothbrush on your radiator fins count?...not after every ride, of course. Just once every week or two...naah, never mind.

P.S. As an accountant, of course I am anal retentive.

Maybe I should have put a smiley face on my post?! Okay here's one....:)

I think the sticker is just fine! I make them myself as I make signs and I made the regular roundel (blue, black, white) using reflective and put it in the same place on my 99RT so yeah your a genius!

I rarely clean my bike as it rains much of the time and I bought it to ride not be a garage queen.:dance

That strip of unused rubber on the edges of your tire.... unused because you were too chicken to lean that far. :stick

Not much of one on this tire:

But a pretty thick one here:
