STT Group stickers

Dear STT, I like the trackdays you guys put on, I like the tracks you go on, and I like you STT guys! However I just like to let you know....

... your stickers suck donkey balls...
... I forgot to put some tape underneath it the last time, after the bike got wet overnight, now the sticker will only come off, if you heat it up, put gasoline on it and spend a ton of time to get it off...


that's all!


and yes I normally put tape underneath...

i just leave a patch of blue painters tape on the bike full time and stick the stickers to that

try wd40 and let the sticker soak a bit, the remains come right off

Pro Honda works well. Soak it, wait 5 minutes, and off it comes.

I have not that much patience, and also there is no more ProHonda stuff, they went green...

Anyway Nick, on a serious note if you guys get the next batch of stickers, maybe go to a plastic backed one, the paper backed once just aint that good dude!
I belive also if you guys put a nice picture on it, let's say me in the picture, you get better feedback about the cool stickers you guys have...

I didn't know Pro Honda went green WTH?

sorry your're having such a hassle, but we went to those particular stickers because we actually had a couple guys take the stickers off their bikes and put them on another non paying customers bike and let them ride.

It's about the same as not paying, not signing track or stt waivers, sneaking out onto the track, getting caught and then almost striking a female in the paddock while trying to get away, but only Uncle Sweetness himself would do that...

I don't think we'll be changing them. I know Bonnie looked at a couple different types and ended on the ones we have now. We're open for suggestions. Any ideas?

Who would do something like that?

I'm just saying... and with the new owner there seems to be a lot changing from what was said at barber...
But what would speak against your argument is that I was told at barber to switch stickers from one bike to another.... well I forgot it and nobody said a word that my bike had no sticker, well it had the white outline left from a sticker from last year...

If people are going to cheat, they're going to cheat. Maybe I'm naive, but I'd say most track people are good people. What if their buddy just rides the bike with the sticker? There will always be ways around the rules, why make it a PITA on everyone else?

Yes you can do that. all you have to do is let us know so we can tech the second bike

Like 99.9% of track goers are the very best people i have ever met in my life!! Sadly, all it takes is a couple of toolboxes to effect everyone. the decision to change happened in 2006 or 2007. I had nothing to do with it.

If you guys could come up with a real workable solution I'd make it worth your effort.

ideas?

initially, when STT changed sticker compound monte would not permit that. When I took over events in the Midwest in 2006 I let guys put the sticker on painters tape. I plan on continuing that practice. if someone wants to be a toolbox and try to ruin it for everyone else by doing something illegal I will address it then.

But if someone comes up with another idea besides stickers I am all ears.

I haven't used any STT stickers yet, but the Blackhawk stickers are the same way. PITA to get off unless you use painter's tape.

Just curious why ALL of the track organizations don't just use the simple method like NESBA does. You've got a generic vinyl group/class sticker, permanent numbers on the bike, and the only thing that changes is your tech sticker, and wristband.

My bike still has the same stickers on it from each of the bumps I received. Haven't had to change them for any reason.

It would seem to be cheaper if everyone had their own group/class sticker, because once you had one, the only cost for the organization would be the paper tech sticker, and wristbands.

Jim makes a good point. Over the long haul, the cost per day with a more permanent vinyl based decal is probably lower.

It certainly survives riding in the wet better & is easier to remove if/when you need to do paintwork or repair a fender.

They also look a bit nicer, but that's pretty much irrelevant.

I can see that if you only do one or two track days a year you have no problem with that, however if you go ride NESBA, they put the sticker on, than you ride STT and some people decide the sticker has to be put on top of the nesba sticker, than you do Motovid, well that sticker has to be on top as well. Than for the CCS Tech, the sticker ends up where? yes on top of all this sticker stuff. And back to Nesba... you drag about 2lbs of stickers around with you.
Also using painter's tape doesn't work all the time, sometimes you just don't have it handy or it also leaves traces when it stays on too long...

I understand ( and I do the same at work ) the STT way is the best for what they do, end of discussion...
