it could only be worse if he painted the tires....
intense. great writeup
I would likely concur with your observation however, the value of camouflage is realized only when the camouflaged object blends into the surrounding. Had the bike been painted or covered with an urban type camouflage, you would have a point. I will primarily be on the road, where black asphalt will be the back drop to the lower 1/2 of the bike and cars, buildings and trees will make up the background for the upper part of the bike. I don't envision a Khaki/tan type background in my daily commute.
wow! you need a girlfriend! i thought these bike were already to heavy? how much weight did all that glue and fabric add? also, what happens when you crash? spill gas on it? need to wash it? do you take it to the dry cleaners or hit it with the hose?
Here are a couple of camo'd vehicles which were part of the inspiration to camo the KLR:
Truck with decal style camo
Partical camo'd KLR
Darker cao'd bikes
I like this one the best
you know that's the point of the shift to the newer digital camo right? To blend in with more varied enviroments. It isn't made to blend into just trees or just urban, it's an all around. Camo is not intended to make you look like anything, it's purpose is to break up the general outline of human and human made shapes, when people are scanning an area. Which sadly is EXACTLY what cagers do, very quickly. Think tan buildings, green/black/brown vehicles.... Peoples eyes don't scan for an object usually they scan for shapes. If yours is broken up and not easily recognized you may have a problem. You've done this.
As others I applaud the dedication but I am really confused why you would do that.
Different strokes I suppose
May I suggest-
Not my thing, but I like it a lot! Nice work, and I really appreciate the work it took to do the write-up alone!
PS Seriously though, you need camo riding gear now!
I think an "anti-collision beacon"
might be more effective!
ummmm yeah....that bike looks wrapped too tight.
Now dz germanz cant see you in the woods.
Except your flourescent vest.
You put a lot of hard work in the project and it looks very good. However, you know, if someone turns left in front of you, pulls out if front of you, or rear-ends you, they can actually use the excuse "I didnt see him" like all the other cagers uses. Good possibility of losing a court case, just saying......
A High visability vest is a rider requirement on military bases, I wear it all the time.
your riding that on a military base? really? wow
Wow..just wow. Really bad idea. That's an awful lot of work to make riding your bike more dangerous.
What he said.
You forgot these http://www.cycletires.com/Innova/mxdesert.html
Personally I think it looks....well..... intresting, but to each his own!!!!!!
I don't think the camo will really be all that much dangerous, as long as the bike is moving. Camo always seemed to work best when the object is still. YMMV.
So...there's a motorcycle in these posts?
Motorcycle....?? Where ??
I don't see no freaking motorcycle !
Did you research this after you fucked up ya bike?
Not my thing. Personally, I would have spent the money on a new shock instead. Still, if it makes the OP happy, salute!
