Do you wear textile riding pants or jeans? I never scuffed mine with jeans. I scuffed nearly immediately with my KLIM riding pants.

The Techspec stuff doesn't peel or fade. Maybe that is why it is 70 instead of much less.

The static cling panels used in the Tankslapper kit can be removed, cleaned and reapplied. I have done this at least twice for the ones on the side of the tank. I only have 134k miles on my kit though.

Well, I reckon you must be riding from your armchair, your body is seriously wide or you ride in a dust free environment!

When I bought the Klim gear, immediately knew I wanted the tank protection.

Still more traveling to do!

My Olympia Air Glide overpants works like sandpaper, so I'm on my third set of Tankslapper static cling film. You get better at applying it each time...
