Wicked Hi Tech Case Protector

DSCN0338

Commercial grade Velcro. Just a bit cheaper than those aftermarket case protectors and, when it starts to degrade, just peel it off and put some more on. Does it work, well I have Alpinestar Tech 8 boots and it holds up very well and does protect the cases from scuffing.

No Slop Valve on Acerbis Cap, Pecards, Garrage

DSCN0353

All the photos of my 690 are after washing so it looks pretty. BTW it was only a few months old at the time. Isn't usually that photogenic. I cut down the length of the no-slop valve slightly to allow it to clear my KTM tailbag.

DSCN0354

What to use on your Renazco seat to waterproof and otherwise protect it, as recommended by James.

DSCN0370

Where I keep my baby.

DSCN0379

After all life is about balance.

Night Falcon has created a picture posting monster. Blame him, not me.

Cheers,

Turn Signal Clearance, TT Kickstand Foot

DSCN0319

Good clearance to prevent toasting.

DSCN0328

Well worth the $30+. Gives you a more stable kickstand plant in gravel, etc.

More Hi-Tech Protective Applications

DSCN0326

More Velcro and Plumbers Pipe Tape to protect the TT engine guards.

DSCN0332

Another application of Velcro to quiet down the cables from vibrating on the plastic headlight mask. Please buy my book, 1,000 Uses For Commercial Grade Velcro.

TT Fold Back Brake Lever Pedal

DSCN0340

So, when you fall just right, or catch your OEM brake lever on a rock and it snaps off like a rotten twig you should retrieve the broken piece and use the TT fold back pedal as a back scratcher.

And now I shall take a rest.

Nippy,
You need to see someone about those retentive traits....or find something else to do that has nothing to do with Velcro and a dust rag

I'll let you know what I find out....
Time to update Seth's list ... That we haven't seen for a while now ...

Uncle Jed, I thought you were a marriage counselor, not a Psychologist, but I could be wrong.

I'm less worried about scuffing, but have had my brake lever puncture a hole in the cover. Not sure Velcro would have done much to prevent that.

Well......I try to offer my help to those who present with a variety of "issues".

Your tidy shop is just what mine looks like under 20 years of crap build-up....so I am a bit envious . It is just evidence that you have WAY too much time on your hands ....or spend a lot of time in the garage ducking your wife's glare....

Your sign indicating submission to your wife's mood is one that hangs over more than just your head....but, if you came by we could talk a bit more about that

As for velcro....I remember my BMW rally days where the wake-up call was the sound of velcro tent openings and luggage bags clicking open or shut.

We all like to baby our rides in our own way....thanks for sharing yours
