I love it!!

My kid is REALLY in to airsoft and MILSIM stuff and he thinks that you have created the perfect KLR.

Your technique is very interesting and I think I may try it on some stuff I use for hunting.

Regardless of what others say....it's your bike. Do what you want with it.

Great stuff!

Impressed with the work

What detail. I'm thinking if this thing gets anywhere near my line of sight I'm gonna be focusing on it and thinking WTH is that and where did it come from. It is outside the norm therefore I think it will draw more attention. Look how much it got from so many of the inmates in here. Good job dude. great detail.

I agree!
In this environment the Camo Ghillie suit is well suited

Same here:

Not so much here though:

Camo

Um......
And I was thinking of getting new black skins for the WR and having them dipped in the camo ink transfer stuff. Mossy Oak probably. Of course I hadn't planned to touch any of the rest of the bike. It was going to be a redneck thing ya know.

You did a fine job on the KLR.

I guess you need to go back and read my post and what came immediately above it then eh

Just for you though....the OP seems to be posting lots of pics of vehicles with urban camo on them - I was just curious as to why ?

I think we're all just a little boggled that the love of a clever camouflage colour scheme can completely blind someone to the fact that they've rendered themselves almost invisible in poor conditions.

Silver/grey cars have become terribly trendy in recent years, yet in poor conditions, rain, overcast, dusk etc, they vanish into the grey surroundings, so much so that I refer to them in car driving company as "motorcycle coloured".

I buy my cars second hand so I don't get to choose my favourite colour, but I will reject any silver or grey car without bothering to go and look at it; my father once asked me how much cheaper they would have to be to persuade me to buy one - my answer was "cheap enough to resell with a minimum of fuss for a profit".

You're welcome to ride and drive whatever colour bike or car you want. But please don't delude yourselves that a bike with a camouflage colour scheme is not camouflaged.

I can see that you're proud of the job you've done, so for that, well done.

Just ride safe out there...

So ... why don't you just go ahead and paint the tires anyway too ?

...(my curiosity) ...

I have seen tires that had some overspray on them ... it basically stuck on there about forever anyway ... it really gives the bike a crappy looking appearance (I guess because we are sooo conditioned to see ... BLACK ! ... and if you were going to do all that other work ... why stop and leave the tires black ?

since they are a consumabe item anyway ... you've lost nothing ?

I actually WANT you to do this ...

It woudn't take a lot of time ..

Some of the paint will fall off quickly .. but random patterns .. (as in nature) ... are the point anyway

I like the idea, I really do... but IMO it would have looked alot better with an offsetting color to break it up.. as someone said, just be cause you CAN wrap it, doesn't mean you should.
Maybe leave the fender tan painted, as well as the engine/ pegs, etc.. just wrap the tank and a few other parts.
Also, the wrinkles in everything bother me and makes it look halfassed.

I admire the effort and creativity. A solid "C" overall

Here is the calculated weight data based on a few measurements:

Cut a 12"x12" section of the nylon fabric

Measures in at an area density of 12 grams/ft^2

A 12"x2" section of double sided tape measures in at an area density of 6 grams or an area density of 36 grams/ft^2
Therefore: The total area density of the fabric + tape = 48 gram/ft^2.
I'm estimating the total coverage = 60 ft^2, which equates to ~5 rolls of tape. The total weight of material = 60 x 48 = 2,880 grams or 6.3 lbs.
