    someone asked way back what the wave signifies...my understanding is it's akin to a fraternity handshake, and it is properly done with two fingers signifying two wheels. Not a Harley thing.

    I think I see two black flaps as you describe...thanks. Silicone spray sounds good. Hydrophobic too.
