Now, that part IS true ;) But if it weren't for all the sniveling cry-babies this would be a whole lot less fun.

Putting stickers on other people's bikes is a bad idea....

thats why i dont pay attention or care what stickers are on any cage...they are not always friendlies! that could have turned out much worse had the driver not exercised as much restraint as he did. ive seen people shot and run over for much less here in north charleston.

with the way it did turn out though, it was a pretty funny story!

Where are you guys seeing all these other ADV riders?

I've had an ADV sticker (and now two) on my bike for about 45,000 miles. I've only had one person flip me off, and that was a rider I met at a stop and later passed on the road. To my knowledge, I've never had anyone salute me out of the blue.

I think only once I've encountered another bike with an ADV sticker on the road, not counting ADV rider gatherings . The closest I've come is that a friend of mine commented after she saw the ADV sticker on my bike, "My friend Greg has a sticker like that on his truck."

I guess it would be bad to put one on my and my partners police Kawi's? I would understand but not sure if the El Salvadoran ticket machine would.

If one did want to go about removing it, how would you? If it was on the truck window i could just take a razor to it. Can it be easily removed from plastics?

So a propane-fueled hog-torch wouldn't be a good idea? I'm sure it would get them to peel up fast!
