Not sure why the camo job was necessary, looked like alot of work too, but hey, if you like it..... awesome

Just don't park it in a digital desert and walk away , you'll never find it again.

Thats what I wear to work so I could not do up a bike like this. I like tan / black or flat green plastics with black frame
again camo isn't made to look like anything it's all about breaking up patterns. That's why even with any kind of issue camo if you really wanna "blend" your trained to start adding plantlife, etc

not arguing just pointing out that it's about breaking up shapes, and Id know I would not want my bike's shape broken up at all to the peripheral vision of a blonde soccer mom applying eye makeup, beating the kids, texting, and dreaming of the bx's BK. It's dangerous enough as it is.

Disclaimer- again i applaud the dedication it took though

The bike alone could put us in a "Code Orange".

Nice job! I can appreciate the effort you put into doing something that you are into. Who cares what everyone else thinks? Do your own thing and fuck all the naysayers.

I found your mind shivering out behind the local liquor store.
Give me your address and I'll send it home.









Seriously that looks pretty cool. I wouldn't worry about what everyone else thinks regarding visibility. A silver & black bike is far more camouflaged on the street than a camo bike.

Have you ridden it in the rain yet? Those pegs might get a bit slippery

great work, but just because you can wrap the part doesn't mean you should.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!

thanks for the comedy!











oh wait, you were serious when you wrapped your already fugly KLR (but the best color they ever came in) and proceeded to wrap the footpegs, spraypaint your wheels WITH the tires still on (can't wait to see what they look like after a tire change) (or rocks), wrap your seat and tank with creases all over the place, spay paint parts while still on the bike, and adding the second fender up front AND the extra one on the rear wheel the WILL get sucked into the rear tire after compression off a whoop, jump, downhill decent, etc etc etc.

and i'm a previous owner of a 2007 KLR.



this thread name should change to WTFKLR

10 out of 10 for effort, but why didn't you wear digital camo army uniform & a motocross lid again wrapped in camo?

You look like my postman sitting on that.

Nah pisstaking aside thanks for the post, ive always wondered what it would look like.
