Side number plates...

Recommended Posts

My side number plate graphics are taking a jolly thrashing and I'm sure it's from my boots and standing. Is that to be expected? I'll gladly suffer trashing them so long as it's to be expected of the form.

If you look closely at most of the pros bikes, they have that clear grip stuff on their tank, parts of their frames, and the front portion of the number plates.

Most likely Stomp Grip - good stuf.

Once the peeling of the graphics starts, you can extend the life a little by cutting them back with a razor blade right behind where they are starting to peel. This not only gives you a nice clean edge again, it buys you a little more time before they need to be replaced and makes them look nicer than that mess that peeling creates.

Its normal if you don't use your foot on it to maneuver the bike in the air. I can't think of any other time your boot would contact it.

So you're further back in the pic, not overshooting (way overshooting) that ramp in the foreground.

That would really hurt if I was trying to land on the one in the foreground! Thats actually a take off to downhill jump.
