absorbent pad protects paint during fuel ups
Annoying fuel burps or spills can harm paint, as well as cause pollution and dangerous situations, such as fires if gas drips on a hot engine. Cleaning it up is another problem, since the insufficient, scratchy paper towels at the station hardly get the job done. The patented Chadd Padd® provides the perfect solution by catching and containing any spills or overages that may occur at the pump. The industry’s premier, disposable refueling bib protects motorcycle and car surfaces from hose and nozzle damage.
Originally designed for use on corporate jets, the waterproof Chadd Padd delivers 10″ x 10″ of fuel absorbing power. Made from clean, soft and absorbent polymers, it is anti-static treated and can hold up to 4.5 oz. of petroleum products.
The Chadd Padd can be used multiple times for a variety of applications. With a perforated, partial hole design, it accommodates most filler ports for refueling or adding oil. The pad can also be employed as a drip mat and is even disposable, in accordance with applicable regulations.
The economical Chadd Padd retails for just $9.95 for a convenient 6-pack, while a roll of 36 10″ x 10″ pads is $34.95. Enter promo code EZFUEL8 at www.chaddpadd.com to save 10%.

California Wants All Exhaust to Be EPA Approved
It’s a trend that is quietly building momentum across the country. States and Cities are enacting legislation to force motorcyclists to comply with federal noise emission standards as a way to quiet loud pipes.
On Monday August 30, California joined the growing number of states who passed legislation making it a crime to operate a motorcycle manufactured after Jan. 1, 2013, without a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency label certifying that the bike’s exhaust meets the federal standard.
The problem, say critics, is that most of the EPA stamps and labels on stock exhaust pipes are difficult if not impossible to find and as a result, many motorcyclists will be unfairly ticketed and harrassed.
The police chief of North Hampton Maine told lawmakers that clean stock pipes on the police department’s Harley-Davidson’s are easy to locate if you lay on the ground, but that would require two officers to check. “I would still need two people (present when checking a motorcycle for the EPA label),” Page was quoted on Seacoast online saying that he would want one officer in position to watch the operator while the other checked for the label. “I’m not going to have anyone lie under the cycle with the rider (on it).”
New York and Denver have passed similar legislation this year.
