Nice, I like that! ...now get the nanny stickers off the saddlebags...

The twisties – not the superslabs –separate the riders from the squids...

That is a sharp looking seat! +3 on losing the bag stickers. The longer they stay on the harder their gonna be to get off clean. That is if you're planning to take them off.

Since my wife is so good at peeling stickers, sunburned/peeling shoulders etc... I just turned her loose on them. I cleaned the sticky leftovers (and there will probably be some) with a bit of Meguires cleaner/wax and it took it right off.

A hair dryer will soften the glue, then wedge a screwdriver under it and use a hammer to chisel....just kidding!! Seriously, a hair dryer to soften the glue, then a fingernail to peel it off, then Goo Gone to clean it up!
