    Not only is my hood perfectly flush, but my new hood seal attracts even more women than the old factory one ever could dream to.

    Note to self: replace hood seal in case of divorce.

    Thanks. It's an old pic and after years of sportbikes I thought I would give cruisers a try. It didn't take so I compromised with a thumping V twin literbike.

    A DeLorean will get more chicks (assuming the hood alignment is correct).

    I adjust the center latch of the hood so the rear corners are just a little low and then use the bump stops to push the corners up flush.That way the corners don't shake while you are driving. Make sure the V notches are lined up with the bump stops so they will capture the the bump stops in the event of an accident.
