I have a similar setup. I works a lot better than you would expect.

By "ideas I got on the net", I think you mean directly copied from these: http://www.cypressgraphics.com/buy_decals.html (The least you could do is give credit where it's due.)

Thanks. I got lucky that day.


Here's one I hadn't hoped to take. Some, let's say, immigrant workers got a room next to mine at a Motel 6 tonight, except I didn't know that. They were making a lot of noise outside and tying to get into my room, so I called the front desk.

Guy comes out and clarifies that they got the room number wrong and are actually guests. Well, the noise continued for a while. It sounded like they were bagging trash, and in fact they were going through the trash looking for coke cans.

So when they quit I pulled my bike inside. Makes the room small, but it's nice having her so close
