New sticker kit. I love leopard print, so why not put it on the bike

Very nicely done Minxy, PRIMO! It's subjective, yes, but that blue leopard print "POPS" just right. Reminds me in a good way of the blue color used on the 2011 990 Dakar Adventure....

Orange and Blue seem to look good together. Perhaps a few more wheelie pics when you have time so that the new look can be more completely assessed? :)

Don't see many of the orange tanks out there. Looks good and doesn't look as massive as the black, at least in this picture.

Well, now I've seen two! Looks better goin' away than comin' at, but that could be said of a lot of things.
Nice pics, BTW.

I too have a GL tail and tank bag for my SE (Great Basin and Diablo). Brilliant stuff. Only issue I would bring to your attention is with the tank bag. I learned from experience that the lower tank bag mount that straps over the tank will score the Safari surface. After ten days of cross-country touring, the imprint of that mount is forever imprinted on my $800 Safari tank. No amount of polishing has successfully removed it. If I had it to do over again, I'd find a nice piece of vinyl sheet to stick onto the tank wherever the mount makes contact. Any masking tape or packing tape would probably work as well. Just something to take the abrasion off the tank surface. These Safari tanks have notoriously soft plastic.

Hope it helps. Have fun on the trip!

Thanks David and Midfat!
I have already taped the side panels where the Great Basin sits. So I will tape or cover the Safari top as well to protect it from the GL Fandango bag.
