So, I wanted some grip on my tank but shelling out $60 on a tank pad was out of the question. I began to explore the interwebs, looking for options. I discovered a tiny miracle known as Bumpons, made by 3m. I found a pack of 120 pieces for under $5 and thought it was worth trying out. I gotta say, they look pretty funky, but I'm a practical kind of guy... not too concerned with looks on a bike I'm riding muddy trails with every weekend. These little things grip like hell, that is to say, they don't budge. With just a little squeeze of the thighs, I feel more secure than I ever have on my Tdub. Pressing the outside knee into the tank while leaning through a turn provides plenty of sticky grip. Easily the best $5 I've spent on ol' "Twanda"

Oooohhh! Snakefoot, you'd fit in well with the Kimmie Codgy's 'round the Boont region! They love cheap, well thought creativity. Don't have to be "highpockety" to customize the T-Dub.

farkle: accessory.



The word is generally accepted to mean a combination of "function" and "sparkle", hence, farkle.



Motorcycle enthusiasts may install accessories, called farkles (also spelled farkel), to customize their machine.

One source attributes the term to Pete Wells, the organizer of a 1997 Honda ST1100 rally



The term is well known in the sport touring community.



An enthusiast may be in the process of "farkling". The completed motorcycle would be all "farkled up". Radar detectors, Global Positioning System receivers, heated grips, and satellite radios are some of those farkles. Other accessories could be aftermarket seats, side and/or top cases or bar risers, which make the motorcycle more suitable for long miles.
