General Advice

Ok, I need some cosmetic advice. I was kinda thinking of removing all the white decals on my bike; and getting rid of the stock front blinkers is already a given... i think. Good idea or no? Throw me any other advice you can think of. I already got a competition werks FE and rear blinkers on, vortec frame; swing arm; and bar end sliders, and D&D exhaust. Pro grip gel 724's, chrome black sport tech windshield, and bike alarm is in the mail and on the way. The girlfriend is buying me a tail cowl cause she's a bit crazy and thinks if she doesn't I'm gonna be out givin bootie rides to other girls.

The white's not too bad to me. Black would look tight too. The big azz blinkers gotta go tho. Get some LED's.

And can you take the "CBR" in the black off without ruining the black? the white could go. The lights could go and a nice windscreen could be nice.

I think it can be taking off. It's like a sticker on top of a sticker. And I think I'll wait a little on the video stand set up until I think I would look good on camera, haha. Still only have about 6,000 miles under my belt. Most of it going straight because we already covered how north dakota makes all their roads straight. Nobody around here mods there bike for twisties. The only track is a drag strip so everyone lowers and streches... I'm still hopin to drag knee tho when I move out to ohio so I'll be investing in a good set of springs.

Edit: Oh how thoughtless of me. And Pilot Powers of course! Wouldn't wanna get by PP cult.

Yeah, and then go to the tribal flames like 99birdv6 did to his yellow RR after he took all the decals off it...

I'm not a big fan of the tribal decals. Nothing against them, just not really me. Are there other decal kits out there for it?
