Protecting the tank

Description: Tank protection tape for Suzuki Intruder 800 / Boulevard 800

I’m a bit OCD with silly stuff like this, but I hate getting marks on my bike from general use when it can be easily avoided. Most motorcycles have the seat designed so that eventually it rubs away the paint from where the tank and seat meet. On a bike like this, it’s very easily sorted when the contact are is small and simple.

I cut a small protective piece out a “carbon” vinyl wrapping I had laying around. Slapped it on and was done in 10 minutes. With the seat on, you can not really tell that the tape is there so success in that regard also.
