Let's maintain, revitalize and maximize that Enfield https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpofR2wCzLk

     How do they get away with calling these products ceramic?  ???

      Yes, they make everything nice and shiny, but they're not ceramic.

       Back in the day, we used to wipe down a car with shitty paint with a rag wet with kerosene. Looked great for a couple days. Same concept.

       Nothing against the product. It's probably great. It's the hype (around EVerything nowadays) I have a problem with. We don't buy a product any more; we buy the hype.

Wouldn't this be detrimental to the matte finish of your battle green paint ?  http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.in/2012/12/how-to-maintain-matte-finish-paint-of.html

    Not really, it can be removed at any time.

Just looks like another sales pitch to me.

I guess someone might want it but, I'll pass on it.

    Not exactly a sales pitch, just a review. I don't make a single dime from the companies I review for. I earn no commission from sales (Usually that is tied to a discount code and the one time I had a discount code for you guys from trip machine, I still wasn't making anything from it), no payment at all. I do this because I enjoy it, it's fun to try new things or things you are interested in.

I don't see this for "under a hundred bucks" on their website.

I only see it for $249 US Dollars.

Do you have a link to purchase one for under $100?

    I apologize for that, I saw the NEW price as well just now. It was 95 euros. I was not notified of the price change.

So you were able to order it for $105 US and it went up to $249 US?

At the price you got it for I would probably get one but not at $249 (plus shipping I assume).

How about something you can design and customize to your specs? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wjiQ8rUEf4

Hey, what product did you get from TripMachine? I got their grip wraps. They looked nice but wouldn't stick when I got to the end and their silly little extra piece of tape didn't stick. So I used some Locktite superglue and added a wire wrap at the end like racers do. They actually emailed, probably bulk, to ask how I liked them. I told them the problem. They wrote back a few days later and said they now include superglue. That's amazing customer service!

       C'mon! A Show and Tell for tassels? ??? ???

       I know I'll get shit for this, but be careful to not slip any further into Home Shopping Network hyperbole in your reviews. We all know they're not handmade (show me) and the "drive-bys" were a bit silly.

     I mean no offense here; the discounts you have gotten for buyers are a good.

I've always felt YouTube reviews need to be taken with a grain of salt.

If the reviewer was given the product, their review may differ from one where they purchased the item with their own money.

I believe that reviewers should state whether they were given the review item or self-purchased it.

Often times when someone is given something it doesn't have the same perceived value as one they had to purchase.
