    I came into this thread fully expecting something that was going to look like shit and ended up being very impressed. Nice job!

    Yeah, the rims were more or less a freebie, and that was just a mock-up pic. I have since sold them and doubled my money. It's hard to find 8" wide VW wheels! :D

    Stickers are drawn up, just need printed. They'll be die cut ("decal" style, not "sticker" style) probably in black or white. I'll let ya know when I get them!

    I'm a H-Vis scoff... I dress in black with no intention or expectation of actually being seen... but, damn, that's near urban camouflage. I mean, seriously, it takes an extra look just to see the bike there. Looks like a couple of wheels and an engine that leave a guy wondering how they're standing up like that. :huh You should send a picture to DARPA. Maybe they'll make a new uniform based on your work. :evil An M1 would be seriously intimidating decked out with that pattern (then again, an M1 would be intimidating in pink and plastered with butterfly stickers - whatever).

    Feel free to dodge the cars when you're riding but be extra careful where you park... you're liable to have some lawyer driven Prius ramped up on top of it :lol3 by accident even :lol3:lol3

    I can appreciate the sentiment behind your slogan, and your DRZ looks awesome. But, as the father of a seven year old girl who can read, I cringe at the idea of her little lips trying to sound out words your so proudly putting out there.

    There is nothing wrong with words. Those fearful of words need to take a step back and take a look at the world.

    Pick your battles.

    The wrap looks great. I am going to do this to one of my bikes.
    The Prius thing is pathetic. No battle required.

    I'm not scared of words, but I respect the power they weild. Well used words can be more lethal than a bullet; they lead to the rise and fall of nations. JMO, but most of us don't choose our worlds carefully enough. Flippantly used words can bounce through life like a wrecking ball, creating all sorts of unintending consequences.

    As for picking my battles...you know, that doesn't always mean just choosing the battles you think you can win, or that you want to fight. Sometimes you have to stand for your values even when you realize you are about to get the crap kicked out of you.

    This thread is about vinyl, not verbiage.

    Please take this part to JM, or I can take it there for you.

    Thanks,
