Took off the stickies!

Had to watch the kids today plus they were callin for rain so I was diggin spendin time with the youngsters. They wanted to go out and the sun was still shinin so I figured what the hell. While I was outside, I decided to pull out the bike and wipe it down. It was then that I noticed that I hate the big SUZUKI logo on the side, took it off and was very pleased withe outcome . What do you guys think?

I just used a blowdryer and the stickers peeled off. The side of my bike that had been sitting in the sun was ALOT easier to do. The hardest part was removing the sticky residue. For that, I went to advance auto and bought some label and sticker spray(Its on the ground in front of my bike in the first pic) sprayed it on, let it penetrate for about 4 min, and with a little elbow grease it wiped right off.

Oh, yeah when using a blowdryer be careful not to burn the paint.

I leave the bikes logos alone for in resale sometimes the buyer wants said logos. Besides I am not looking at factory logos bar when cleaning the bike & not when riding.

Are you going to take the logo off the can & what about the swinging arm part?
