ahhh ok, I remember now.

Im going to keep the bike the way it is for now.

The other day when I left the headlight on, it drained the battery, did not realize until yesterday when I went to start it, oops.

Charged it over night, back to normal now.

I'd wonder if the decal is printed with a solvent or thermal printer?
Also, is the vinyl cast or calendered.
Also, is it laminated?

fer those prices Kanuck, willin to bet theyre made as cheap as possible....thats why I suggested clearcoating over....
I had "Lethal Threat" decals on mine w/o the clearcoat, and needed a razor to get em off...REAL good stickum....
If I order, I'll get an extra or two and test first before I apply.
That graphic btw, I had on the tank bib on my Harley....always wanted to get it painted onto the sides...got one estimate of $175....I'll try the decals first.

I bet theyre thermal printed...thats why on the order thing they ask if for inside or outside a window...
Probably gonna need to trim with an Exacto too once I get em....no biggie...fer that price...I was figuring more like $12 each...they gotta be bangin these out at this cost...
if they suck, I'll delete the post, lol...

OK, I'm gonna show my ignorance and maybe I've led a sheltered life... but, can you explain the significance of the hot chick sittin in a horseshoe graphic? Looks interesting, but I'm one of those people that have to analyze the custom license plates and try to figure out what the cryptic messages are.
