Any guesses as to what is in the box?
|(Special delivery from across the pond)|
It has come from across the Atlantic Ocean........ I am sure it travelled on planes, trains, and automobiles before it arrived safely at our door.

I think the preceding picture pretty much gives away the answer if you look closely. If not, the next picture certainly does.

That is right. The coveted farkles have arrived. How you ask, did they arrive at my door? Well, let me explain..........
Once upon a time, in a land far, far away..........
I was contacted by a fellow moto-blogger who had (much to my surprise) purchased the chequered tank pad set for me after reading my Coveted Farkle Post.
We exchanged several emails and then DHL visited us just after we got home yesterday and made the special delivery. The set is better than I imagined it would be, and seems to be a high quality heavy duty molded vinyl.
Now this gentleman, who I shall refer to as MB for 'Moto-Blogger' and/or 'Mysterious Benefactor' (since he would like to remain anonymous), went out of his way to provide me with this special surprise. It was unexpected and is much appreciated.
He would not let me reimburse him for the price of the goods or shipping, but luckily he will let me treat him to a meal or two if he ever decides to come to the USA, or we hop a plane across the pond for a visit. Just know MB, how touched I am you did this for me.
The internet truly does make the world a little smaller and even though I have never met MB in person, I believe it is as Bobskoot always says: "There are no strangers, just friends we have not yet met."
I will do a more detailed post after the installation. It looks fairly easy; just a matter of cleaning the parts and mixing a solution to spray on before adhering. I can't ride it for 24 hours after application so we will have to do it prior to Friday morning so I can ride it to coffee on Saturday.
