Ebay again. These are pretty nice. The top ones are actually metal. The other ones look like good quality. First you peel the back, then stick-em on. The front adhesive sheet keeps them spaced correctly.

Not sure where I'll put them, if I put them on the bike. Maybe just even use the wings. 🤔

Oh! That's it. Maybe just use the "wings" part of the bottom ones for the fairing! Then I could use the 3d Honda letters right over the top of the decal on the back. Or remove the decal if its not the same size. 👍🤔

Make sure you post up some pics once you have them mounted.

Those are neat. I've always wanted to add a couple of emblems to my SW but I can never decide where to put what. It's easy to make the SW look 'tacky' because of its lines. I quite like the subtlety of that one on the tail fairing and I wouldn't change it.

The metal ones you have there would look cool on the front fairing somewhere, especially if you could shape them to the fairing contours. (I'm guessing they are slightly pliable).

This 'play on words' can only be said in the English language.

The best commercial one I've ever heard/seen was when the BBC started streaming. Their tag line was:
"BBC iPlayer, making the Unmissable, Unmissable".

I’ve always thought that something like an emblem would nice to apply atop the seam between the floor skirt and the lower front fairing to break up the color contrast for those models which used titanium floor skirts on darker color body panels.

OK, well. I ended up only using the small "Wing" emblem and applied it just under the blinkers on the fairing. I didn't know it at the time, but you may note that this is precisely where the "Gold Wing", which is a very, very cool vehicle, has a similar badge. Most people would not refer to Gold Wing badges as "Cheap" or "Tacky".

I thought it looked quite appropriate, but it may in fact be a bit too small.

I used the small, and quite classy, "Honda" lettering on my top box.

I did apply the metal Honda Wing and Logo to the tank cover near the floorboards. I will be removing them as they seem a bit too big and maybe a bit of overkill. Ultimately, I may just use them in the garage.

I will say that these logos and emblems were placed in such a classy and attractive manner, I was propositioned by a very comely young lady on my ride today. I had stopped at a local park and the cute young thing said "Your extra logos are so cool! Would you like to have sex with me right now?"

I gave her a peck on the cheek, and explained that, a guy like me, with such classy and understated logos and emblems on his scooter was of course already spoken for. I regretfully had to leave her there crying and broken hearted.

She chased after me, in vain, for about 26 blocks before I finally had mercy on her and gave it the gas. She's the girl in the upper left of this image under the cherry blossom tree.

Here is a "close up" of the stricken love child, from the picture above. Notice the effect that the emblems had on the poor, defenseless, yet quite alluring little vixen.

So, if you do acquire some of these high quality and quite classy emblems.... please, use them with caution. And try not to take advantage of all the sweet young things throwing their nubile bodies at you from all angles. YMMV.

The wings below the indicators and the badges on the top box look OK to me. The metal badges just above the foot boards may succumb to damage from your riding boots though.

I'm constantly fighting off young nubile girls with a sh***y stick, just by owning a SW!

Yes, I don't really have a use for those large black and chrome ones. Tried them in a few different spots, they just don't work... 🤔

Gentlemen, please stop.

I’m not going to delete this topic but if these snarky comments continue I’ll be forced to delete a lot of these tit for tat posts.
