Good idea! A lot of dealers gold plated these commemorative quarters. I found some for only $4.50 each. Kinda pricey for a quarter, but ultra cheap for a farkle. Tongue

You know how come I know that CB1100 riders are old? They still carry coins.

Love COIN SPOT, maybe shorten it to C-Spot? (similar to the more famous g-spot)!

ROFL

Heck my kids no longer carry any real money. Only plastic. We were going to ride in northern Kentucky one time and decided to take the ferry across the Ohio river. $2. I had to pay for my son's ferry ride. He didn't have $2 cash. Crazy

RE: That ugly round blank on the throttle body
My first thought when I saw the name on this thread was, boy i'm glad i'm not the only one that thinks that throttle body is uglyTongue

My solution was not near as nice as the_undecider, but I chose the most direct solution:

RE: That ugly round blank on the throttle body
So...I thought this was kind of a cute idea and, when I got home, I reached into our giant piggy bank (that doesn't look like a piggy, instead like a large Duracell battery) and pulled out a single quarter; a single, 2015 Norh Carolina/Blue Ridge Parkway, quarter. Kismet.

Think I could just use superglue?

I used RTV silicone to ensure I could remove this later without leaving any damage. I wouldn't recommend plain superglue, especially the really thin, runny kind.
