Post Your Chicken Strips

So I searched for a thread dedicated to chicken strips and found none.

I was pretty impressed last week when I removed my rear fender and noticed only 1/4" strips on either side of my rear tire (Granted this is a chopper that is only meant to go straight and has a really wide/low profile... not including the rear tire.)

Anyways! Post what you got! Don't be scared if yours are smaller than mine because in this case, smaller is better

Specs:
Bike: Harley Davidson Heritage (Pro-Street Chopper)
Rear Tire: Avon Cobra 300/35-18

I broke my tires in at the track. No chicken strips. But you can still see the very very edge still has some clag on it because I don't ride as hard on the street as I do on the track (obviously).
