Graphic Farkle

I saw this bike at Nick's BMW in De Pere WI. Nice craftsmanship.

FX

I have no association with the product. Just passing it along.

No offense but why would you ruin a beautiful bike with stickers? I looked up blasphemy and there was a picture of that bike. Gives me the shivers...

I don't necessarily agree with the cosmetics of it either. However, iyt may to some, and it sure as hell is creative.

The pics don't do it justice. I've seen better pics of it, and it doesn't look too terribly awful to me. But having said that, I'm not a decal kinda guy. I tend to pull off decals whenever I find them. I took the decals off of my '03 RS, and thought it looked much better naked. In fact, if it weren't for fear of causing damage, I'd be trying to pull off the silver "K1200GT" thing from the side of my tank.

Chuck, I believe it could be removed the same way we've been debadging cars for years; dental floss and GooGone.

Place the floss behind a corner of the badge and "saw" it through the backing coming out the other end of the badge. Soak the remaining material in GooGone for 15 minutes, wipe clean and re-wax.

No kiddin. I may have to try that. So you think it's just some sort of carpet tape?

99.9% sure. When you remove the bodywork, there aren't any mounting points on the back.

Young man at a convenience store while at Port Aransas, TX asked me why I didn't get the FX4 package for my F250 6.0 liter King Ranch. I told him that I did, but had removed the sticker because I thought it looked gay.

Putting ice in the ice chest, I glanced over at him, doing the same, to an ice chest in the back of his F150 FX4 with a BEEG scowl on his face. My wife said I had ruined the leetle guy's day.

What was that middle thang?

No need to see ugly in person, the picture's plenty. Greg's just a gentleman.

The bumble-bee K bike barely pulled it off and only then in the consistency and bold use of racing yellow.... and well, you don't see many of them around either. Do ya?
