with or without stripes?

I'm thinking about removing some of the oem decals.
Here's pics with and without the stripes.
I'm still undecided on taking off the stripes.

she is sun-burnt (showing tan line) and keeping her cast up from getting wet in the pool.
her wrist was crash damaged from a ninja 250. she was my gf at the time and now my current wife. she also crashed my fz600 in the parking lot. as a matter of fact, she has damaged every vehicle i bought her (5).

Up where I live I see bikes like this and they are ridiculous looking in my opinion.

There is a guy in knoxville that has a bike covered in purple shag. I think it is a gixxer 1k but it is hard to tell with the shag, he usually blows past me at about 125 on the interstate while he is sitting indian style. Doesn't wear a lot of gear besides the helmet with one of those mohawk things on it.

IMO; Leave it alone. Its a limited edition and worth more as such and I do like the stripe but, Its your bike.

i've decided...

i'm getting aftermarket fairings and another gas tank. i hope i can find a fiberglass tank with a higher capacity.
i'm going with a cirque du soleil design theme for the graphics.
