Teflon! - Pics added 5/7

So... my boyfriend put a teflon coating on his bike today... This is the stuff they coat on the very expensive airplanes where he works (not the frying pan kind)... To make stuff not stick to it.

This stuff (you are supposed to use it as soon as you mix it) well, he kept it in the fridge for a week with a rubber glove over top of it! to keep it moist).

HOLY SHIT is this stuff awesome! You could slide right off the bike it's so friggin smooth! WOW. I had no idea... It's supposed to sit for 12 hours before buffing (and needless to say he wasn't going to use a buffer on his bike, so he enlisted the help of two of our friends!) No more bugs! Hell, I bet rain would be afraid of this stuff!

WOW. I'll post pics tomorrow in the sun. It's just SIC!!!!

That would be sweet, had a teflon type coating put on a black car once did real well of making stuff easy to come off!

Three things that don't remain hidden for long, the moon, the sun and the truth!

Neighbors probably wondered why you stopped to wash only the wheels at the car wash.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

Brand name? Where do we get it?

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.

you know, i thought about this a little more, and teflon seems like the last thing you'd want to put on your bike (other than the headlight area). i mean, a lot of riders spend money making their bike more sticky (stomp grip pads, etc). if my tank was anymore slippery than it is, i dont know how i'd hold onto the bike while leaning over!!!
