Sounds like fun... but as far as creative ideas..... that's not my dept....

Maybe do a tribute to fallen soldiers on it.... that's my best idea! <but a brit flag! right?

That would work for me... many countries have soldiers dieing all around the world and it's sad.... I think it would be a great thing!

For me, something that has to do with soliders or even any sort of Military comes very personal to me....I served 6 1/2yrs in the US Marines.

I know....I know....but I'm female!!! I get it a lot....Eitherway.....I have lost a lot of friends since the beginning of all the nonsense with Iraq.

Having served 11 months overseas in that bloody sandlot....and not only having to see what that country has had to go through....but also I've had that chance to met and get to know several other soliders from all over the world.
I've learned, that they too have loved and lost, just as us American's have.

In the wake of the bombing in London....I just personally feel that something along the lines, of having loved and losted soooo much....I think just being about to celebrate life...would be a good idea for your bike....not just for all the soilders we've lost...but also for ALL people we've lost...going as far back as September 11, 2001....to the present...adding of course the bombing in London...and even the plane that went down in Greece...and all those people (including the children) that have lost thier lives.

I would put something on my bike that is not only eye catching...but something that is going to make people stop and reflect.....but most of all think....for not only the people we have lost....but also for the people that put their lives out on the line to protect this world....not just a certain country.....

Speedo...glad to see my idea is catching wind... I think it is great... right up with the Fire Bike by O.C.C. If it was done properly with some real good time and effort it could be off the hook! and let us know what you find out...
