Tank Pad Dilemma

After putting a few thousand miles on my Interceptor I noticed an area on the tank where it seems my jacket is rubbing and scratching the paint. As I was coming to terms with the heartache of this I started looking for a tank pad. I don't really like the idea of the stick on kind for a few different reasons, not worth mentioning. The other thing I found was a vinyl bra but after looking at a couple reviews decided I didn't want that either. So I kept searching and found a company that makes magnetic tank pads and bra's. I really like this idea because it is easily removable especially when you want to wash and wax the bike. Only issue is they don't make the bra(which is what I really wanted) for MY bike.
So, my wife and I were out running around last night and ended up at the pet store. This is where I had my idiots epiphany. Though it's not what I wanted it serves the purpose of protecting my tank and it's magnetic.

Oh, and the money spent on it goes back to local animal rescue organizations.

I'd consider it a win, win, then. It'll definitely make your bike unique! ...not that the yoda on the back doesn't already accomplish that. lol

Way to be resourceful, Boog!

I love that.

I'm kind of with you on the tank protectors/pads. My V-Strom 1000 has one, but it was already on it when I bought it. The way I see those protectors is that I bought the machine to enjoy it, which means every inch of it. It makes no sense to cover something up to protect it like that in my mind. Everyone is different.

Hey, that was quite a chore. We went when the transformer caught fire yesterday. There wasn't a traffic light within five miles of my house that was operable.

Hmm, my sister said something like that happened. Was that up near the willowbrook mall area?
