LT Decals

Do you like any of these fairing decals? If so which one looks the best?

I like 'A' because the decal kinda sorta looks like a road. Maybe if you made the line between the two black stripes into a white dashed line, it would really be cool.

Thumbs down My Opinion

A looks best to me, but then I would not have any of them on such a classy looking motorcycle. Can you make it more subtle. Like a white or silver pin stripe of the outlines in A.

Good Luck

Don't care for them myself, but if I had to choose one I think I like 'C' best.
Something more subtle might look classier. If you're gonna do it though maybe reflective vinyl would be a good idea. I like reflective stuff on a bike but not if it makes it look cheesy.

Ready to vote again if you post more ideas!

Tough choice

I like them all. How easy/difficult are they to swap in/out? Are there plans to carry the decal across the entire side to the end of the cases?

E) none of the above! Looks like a skid mark into the intake. But then again I took all the decals and roundels off my bike...Low Lean and Mean. I guess I've had to many Harleys!

Mystery graphic

The first time I linked to this page the black stripes did not show up. Now they do and I like "C" because it looks most like the open road. I do not know I would put any decal on the beast because I like the way it looks plain.

Hey, that would be pretty damn neat...like the old fighter plane and bomber "shark mouth" graphics painted on WW2 planes?

I'm a graphics guy (I like the sport bikes and graphics; I think bright colors like the wing in yellow or orange are great) and haven't found anything I can think of to do to the LT and I'm not big on the muted palette BMW uses. I'm not sure which of these I like best, but it is your bike - if one of them makes you happy and you like the way it looks, go for it. They are kinda neat, the way you;ve designed them into the vents. I think there is a beginning there. Maybe a less contrasty color, like a similar gold or something. Just a thought.

Good luck with it.
