    My next wrap I'm thinking of doing a camouflage pattern using topo maps. I'll have to have it printed, but it'll look pretty cool

    These ideas are great guys :)

    That's the beauty of wrapping, you can relatively risk free test ideas out with the options to revert to what you had without problem.

    The F8's are not that complex in shape either so most people should be able to get a decent result with a little bit of time.

    The topo Idea sounds great! looking forward to pics of that one :D

    Somethig like that was my thought as well. Elka red rear shock and Matte cherry read metallic wrap.... and some of the nice red anodized Twalcom Kyte parts.


    But now that I have decided to get a different shock I might have to reconsider the color... We'll see.

    I'm sure it would be a killer combo though Gangplank :D

    I actually decided I will go all out with the Touratech Extreme in the back due to the ride height adjustability, and combining that with increasing fork travel / ride height with about 1" and an 18" rear.

    As I am just shy of 6.4" I'll take all the ground clearance I can get as I will still reach the ground comfortably.

    Anyhow, not much nice shiny red parts on that shock though...

    Hehe yes it has to a certain degree....

    It's not really that much though about 1cm adjustability I think? (+\-0.5 from stock / Neutral)

    And it comes at a price.

    I got the idea from the Icon Patrol Raiden Jacket - it's not white but white with grey topo-lines on it. I liked so much I decided my GS should look like that one day.

    The 4x4 looks great in the second to last picture! :clap

    That's some awsome ideas Coon :)

    I think a GS in any of those wraps would look VERY COOL indeed :D

    Loved the snake bus wrap, that was original!
