Gsv?

I am sick today, so I been lying around all morning feeling awful, but played with photoshop a little bit. Should I do it or is it lame to add GSV stickers to a SV? I saw a some SVR and I think one GSV. The first one the GSV is in chrome and the red R would be in red chrome or red. The second one is probably the way I would go the GSV and R would be both in chrome. Also, what do you think about adding a chrome suzuki to the bottom of the lower fairing? Another option would be to have the big R and SV650 under the big R.

It's what's on the moto gp bikes that is why some people do it.

I am 99% sure I am doing the suzuki on the lower fairing though.

The Zuk on the lower would look good. Not in chrome though. Not liking the GSV too much. You might as well just put a sticker of a penis on there. J/K I think I'm still drunk from last night.

I would just do the lower Suk. Thats all I would do. I put on the GSVR sticker on my 05 SV, and I took it off quickly because it just didnt look right.

Finally back on 2 wheels

Oh I DO like the Suzuki on the lower fairing.... But regardless of what they're doin' in MotoGP, I think on the street it would be less-than-favorably received.

I really like the silver suz....on the lower fairing.

I maybe a retard, but I actually like the look of the red gsv-R sticker. I don't own a sv so maybe in person it looks akward. Just my thoughts.

I like zuk on the lower. It needs something.
As for the other, Its up to you. I don't think it looks bad. You would be explaining what it means all the time.

It's cool. You're not a retard. You just have bad taste. J/K, dude. Seriously, just kidding.

That's why I am thinking maybe a R with SV650 under it instead of GSV might look better, I may change the location as well. Why it is chrome is because I have a whole chrome sticker thing going already. What sucks is I am really regretting not getting the black can and going full black with all the stickers and that would allowed me to get more creative with black graphics on the bike.

Here is one with SV650R in a different location

Just a thought. Put the Suzuki at an angle following the body lines under the slider.

Not a bad thought. I like it the way it is. Not the photoshop pics, but the way it is right now.

i didn't think the R sticker looks too bad. i liked the red R, it really popped on the blue. i don't like the location of the sticker in the second photo. it looks better by the signals. at least you'd be an individual if you did this. it would set you apart from the crowd. do what you think looks best. i think either with or without them, you have a good lookin' ride there.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

Here is a yellow one that had that, I didn't like it as much as on the bottom.

It is your bike. Your the one that needs to like it the most. At an angle would be slightly different from the norm.

I think you should do the Suzuki in black, to go with the colors of the bike. Where you put it is up to you.

I think the GSV stickers are silly though. Why call it something that it isn't?
