Wonder what they'll be like in the dark?

With less electricity applied - 60 watts/side - 6,000+ lumens. Each.

Profile. Flags in order visited. Must have ridden/driven in country for it to count. Actually, I've ridden in all but one.

A personalized plate "HOBBES" will be coming soon, and graced by this on the rear of a pannier. Couldn't resist.

I got them from [url]http://www.flagline.com/category/rectangular-stickers[/url]. They're about 5.7 x 10 cm.

There is a source of smaller ones - about 2.5 x 3.8 cm, [url]http://www.flagstickershop.com/reflde.html[/url] but they're only available in sheets of 50 - and what do you do with the other 49?

Maybe an Alpine Roads Group Buy? There looks to be about 50 or so different flags in a complete set to cover western Europe and the first layer of eastern Europe (Russia, Ukraine, etc.) along with North America and a set of islands off the African coast known to be frequented by persons who will remain nameless.
