OK. So Maybe One More Farkle

I ordered the black racing stripes for the Fairing and bags. The picture here is from the PCA web site, not mine, which is a bit surprising, since they are a business web site. You’d think they’d use better pictures.

In any event, they are the reflective black 3M product that looks black in daylight, but works as a reflector when car lights shine on them at night. So it isn’t the looks that are important. I mean, who needs cool-looking racing stripes on heir FJR?

But this is a safety issue, which is, like, totally different.

I also ordered the reflective black panels that cover the rear of the saddlebags, too.

I’m all about the safety.

Oh, by the way, I got her up to 115 from a dead stop at a light, in about 11 seconds or so, this morning.

  1. The stripes look pretty good. Now you’ll just have to figure out how to get the speakers and amp on there.
