It's a personal thing I guess. This hipster fad has got a lot to answer for

Tbh I have never seen a bike around here with wrap. There isn't much of a cafe racer or retro bike scene. Nearly every bike is a Japanese cruser or sport bike.

Lol. No need to be a smartass. Doesn't change the fact I haven't seen many does it?

It helps on the look... and if you have children, it can prevent a 3 deg burn.

I think it just ruins the look of an otherwise very cool looking bike.

Yeah you keep saying that. To each their own remember. I don't mind some constructive criticism, but please only dump on my pride and joy once.

There must be some more fans! I quite like the titanium wrap on the blacked out engine. But I'm doubting my decision now.

Its YOUR bike. If ya like it, ya like it. Why second guess what you like when aesthetics are such a subjective thing? Besides Gooner's in wine country. He's probably drunk

I think a lot of new bikes look like origami experiments gone horribly wrong. Lots of other folks think they look great.

Thanks mate. I was a bit on the fence before I fitted it so I don't mind some honest opinions. It's just hard not to take it personally when people aren't being very helpful and start repeating themselves. Wine does that though

Sorry if you think I'm dumping on your bike. I personally just think it looks better without the wrap.

Obvious news is obvious when it pertains to "it's your bike".

I don't even drink wines from the wine country bro. I love me some wines from Chile and Australia.

Yup those Chileans make some good wine at reasonable prices. Do like a lot of the California wines too though.

Slight thread derail....

I remember when Concha Y Toro released their Don Malchor to the US in the late 90's. They were around, what $30/bottle. Now, they are up above $75+/bottle because they are really really good 90, 91 pt wines.
