I don't have a problem with what came with the bike, I think the original decal looks good the way it is!

You were probably just looking for compliments, so sorry about that but I just felt you deserved an honest opinion..

That's cool.

I posted it because I thought it not only looked good, but also because I thought there might be others who would prefer the blue graphic like me.

God Bless,
David

I just put my blue ones on my grey 800GS! They look great! Only problem is I ordered the wrong size "GS" stickers. Oh well, I've ordered the right ones and will make do for now!

That looks cool.

I didn't think it would look that good. The gray GS is actually a sharp looking bike now.

It's even going to look better with the big GS's.

Did humvee do the name for you as well?

Thanks for sharing.

God Bless,
David

Re Yeti, nope I have about a hundred of those in various sizes.

I'm really looking forward to getting the bigger GS stickers. With the grey and blue it kind of looks like the BMW HP's, which is appropriate I guess given that everyone knows that the grey ones and the fastest and best handling GS's.

Looks good, for a grey bike, but I have to say I like the blue on white better.

I do like the personal touch though.

@ Apostolus,

Which top case do you have on your bike? It looks like a Pelican box (Caribou), but it's hard to tell.

It's a Pelican Storm im2200. http://www.nalpak.com/Pelican-Storm-iM2200

I also have a 2300 for when I need a little more room, but I usually have the 2200 on.

It's mounted via Twisted Throttle quick release mounting kit. http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade/productview/5680/723/

I really like the setup; it works great for me.

God Bless,
David

That's great. I was checking out some of the more military style boxes on the Pelican site - they are really cool. The Twisted Throttle mounting plate is a good option too. I had seen the Caribou system, but the one you have (at least for the top box) looks pretty sturdy too. Thanks for the info!

It's very sturdy and easy to take on and off.

You don't have to open the case to to install or remove it.

God bless,
David

Sorry for the crappy cell phone picture, but here it is with the bigger GS stickers:




Much better I think!
