Mostly electrons.

The charger is in the tank. I cut the bottom of it off. Need to keep the tank because motorcycles look REALLY STUPID without one.

Go HERE for more photos of the cycle, including the tank pix.

I did strip all the paint off the tank a while ago, but haven't gotten to repainting yet. The tank might look pretty cool with a couple of "sponsor" logos or stickers on it.

Tint? did you say tint?

I was gonna tint over my static clingy thingy so it will never come free. I will pull the windows and tint one at a time on the table while I'm home & wifey's at work.
I need tint for the Master Blaster Global Warming summer that is about to hit here .

I just got my window sticker in the mail today! I put it on my window as soon as I got it out of the envelope, but, it's pouring buckets outside right now so I will take my camera out to get pictures tomorrow when it clears up...if it ever clears up. Looks awesome though, I hope it shows up better in the light tomorrow, the angle of my rear window is such that it seems like it's going to be hard to see unless it's really bright out, so hopefully it shows up tomorrow better.

Perhaps it's already too late.

Received mine last week and applied one to the rear widow. I think it reduced turbulence back there.
