Thanks for the tip guys. I do this for the plastics on my road race EX to help keep them from cracking but didn’t even think about their uses in other applications. Do you recommend the small ones or the normal size? The small ones are the ones that are like 4 or 5 inches long and maybe 1/16 or 1/8” wide. I think the normal size are about 8” long and 1/4” wide.

Throw in a passenger and I'm unsure of what I'd consider ideal. Maybe a Multi?
I am now for sure sold on the Dual Sport style bike.
Keeping the Vulcan for now. The ladies seem to love it.
