I was checking out a few options for rim tape and noticed several negative comments from customers about different brands. Any suggestions for a good quality rim tape? Looks like some of the complaints are for the applicator ( I guess to help with getting it on straight without waves) that come on some of them.

Thanks for the tip! Looks like having track stands is a must to be able to do that right. I've seen several of John's videos. Very helpful! I just installed the Motodynamics fender eliminator and watched his video about disassembling the tail section to do that. That saved me a lot of time!

You need to be able to free spin the wheel. If not, it ends up looking like you were drunk/stoned/high....all at the same time. You'll notice my bikes dont have rim tape....I cant do it. I've tried

I just tried these ebay cheapies to see if I liked the look & thought they looked great. They have been on for 7 months now & the quality seems really good for the price.

Yep. Those look great. I see you did the stripe on the bag too! What brand is the tail bag?

Those look really good on your bike! I have the same bike so I can see how it would look on mine. What brand of tail bag is that? I'm looking for one that size.

Thanks for getting back! I have been looking at the Nelson Riggs since I saw yours. I figured that's what you had.
