Fun with stickers!

I still have stock decals and I've been hinting at getting new ones. Especially cause some of the stripes on the right side of my ride have been coming off from the previous owner not tying it down correctly on a trailer. This is what I have now except that I took off the white decals...



Not the point. i have narrowed down my choices to the following, but it's still a toss up for me... Replace bike model with a red 03 cbr600rr and imagine the tape color to be black reflective, cause its better to be reflective than not. Help me decide, my brain is starting to hurt.

I like this one cause it's half tribal and half flame


I like this one cause I kinda like how busy it is and it just has a good look to me. I would do kinda the same deal except my lowers would be reflective red and I would try to replace my gray lower fairings with black... or just spray paint them black cause who cares... they're lower fairings.


And so I don't get sued, all of these photos came from tapeworks.com and magically appeared on my post. Don't ask me, it's a miracle.

Don't you mean, you agree AND you think people have gone way overboard with decals? The only reason I want to go with decals is because it's thousands of dollars cheaper than a good paint job and to be seen better at night.

It used to stand for Football and #3 was my number in high school, but that was like 6 years ago. The name kinda evolved to fly boy when I went into the air force, cause everyone always asks if you are a pilot when you say you're in the air force. I have learned to just say yes. And the ironmann cause I still friggin love that song by black sabbath. I am iiiiiiiirrrroooonmaaaan!

They totally do. Go to their site. And yes I do know about shut up and color. I usually have to supply the crayons to the new airmen when they decide they have figured out how the air force should be run.

I like the bike the way it is. The decal kits look like way too much to me.

I vote for the solid red (just like my SV) but if you really, really want to play with stickers, I'd go for option number 3 with the flames.

Well, if the general concensus here is to go with solid red, I will have to do that eventually even if I get a new decal set later on. And still another option, I could ghost the flames by color matching so that they are unseeable during the daytime but still reflect at night.

The ghost deal would be sweet.

I'd go for that... give you your nighttime reflection, but keep it red during the day.
