You will see many motorcycle owners cruising in groups and customizing their rides in the most unique ways possible. One of the best ways to make your ride attractive is by installing motorcycle flags. You will find several pre-made designs available at specialty websites and bikers forums. You can also have these customized and have your logo or name placed to identify your bike from others. Here are some tips on how to mount the flag properly.
Some of the basic tools include a mounting bracket, calipers and an Allen wrench set. Pick a component of your motorcycle where you will mount the flag. You can set up more than one flag to make it more attractive. Some riders like to put the flag on the sissy bar on the rear fender. Others like to put these on their hard-shell saddlebags. Make sure that the flag will not distract your or block your view.
Get the diameter of the mounting location. The tube may be round or square where you can easily attach and mount the flag. Choose a bracket that properly fits your tube. Use the Allen wrench to take off the bottom of the mount. Put the clamp on the tube then slide the flag pole into the receiver. Tighten the flag using the head bolts and Allen wrench. Adjust the height of the flag and also check that it does not obstruct the view of other bikers or motorists on the road. Motorcycle flags will last several years if mounted properly.
