    Sticker placement

    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.

    Oh man, that was cold...

    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?

    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.

    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.
