Any suggestions on making this standout more??



We are going doing MuddyBuddy this weekend and from what I here it takes for ever to find your bike. I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions on what else I can add.

Spray the crap out of it with non stick Pam!! then your bike wont have any mud on it and it will be EASY to find!! If you use the butter flavored Pam, your bike will have that nice buttery smell!!!!
