    Depends what you mean by "works" :D

    These orange ones my brother made of 3M vinyl have been on since July. No problems with adhesion, but they have a few minor gas bubbles. Just about time to change them out... hmmmm, may go with a multi-color logo this time.

    The full wrap didn't last too long before bubbles appeared almost everywhere, but using the smaller decals seems to work better (more exposed surface area for out-gassing?). Also, the TechSpec tank pads are still holding in place with no bubbles underneath, either.

    That's because I didn't want you to see it was a GS :lol3



    Just kidding, I was on an 04 950. I carry a camera around my neck and rarely get off the bike so lots of my pictures are bikeless.

    That picture was taken shortly after this one. (no GS!)

    After cresting the hill (Mountain for that area) the GPS said turn right so I went down this which led to a rail crossing then down what was either an old road/rail bed or drainage levy shown in the original post.

    I just traded my 2008 Super Duke for this! Just in time for the roads to get salty and winter to show up, but I'm ready for spring!

    When I convinced Moose Racing to let me spec a -2.5 inch Adventure screen, I tried to convince them to make an Translucent Orange version specifically with Geek's bike in mind:

    Selfishly I wondered if there was any way to improve an already perfect looking Adventure.

    Well, sure enough, Moose prototyped an Orange screen on someone's 950. This would look choice on Geek's. But then again Narsisco would want one too.

    I'm working on getting a translucent blue version for my '04 S.

    Narsisco, can your brother get perforated vinyl label material? When I had my Aprilia RXV550 it had a black plastic polyethylene tank and the OEM tank labels were lightly perforated with pinholes, I assume for the out-gassing. Worked great. They stayed on for years of rough treatment. Tough to get labels to stick to low energy polymeric surfaces, such as the x-linked polyethylene these tanks are made from, takes a special adhesive.

    Yes, he can and that was his suggestion if I wanted to try to do a full tank wrap again. It's the same material that's used to cover glass/windows on large vehicle wrap jobs. I think the perforated stuff only comes in white, so it needs to be graphically-printed before application.
