<<Now I want to figure out how to make a nail-blocking curtain somewhere
between the front tire and the rear tire. Maybe added to the
shock-protector thingy (the way Wunderlich create their megadollar
carbon fiber protector) or screwed just below into the swingarm
Make a flap that hangs from the centerstand crossbar. Don't have a
centerstand? use the bosses to mount a piece of steel to mount a flap.
The flap idea is an old Harley rider's thing. I never bought into it at all.
In fact, the guys who have them usually still get flats. I think it's
because they ride on the untravelled pavement. If you keep to the car tire track,
the cars will pick up all the nails for you.
Beat the Summer Rush! Order shirts and hats now-
Get them in time for he BMWMOA Rally in Lima!
