    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.

    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? Most anal retentive BMW owners wouldn't even think of posting a picture where you can see a hand print in the wheel dust.

    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.

    Thumbs up

    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.

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

    Not much of one on this tire:


    But a pretty thick one here:
