F800GS - Show us your Decals/Stickers!

Just thought I would post a little sequel to "Show us your Lights"

Since I am anticipating getting my F800 back soon, I wanted to see what people do for decals/stickers and your opinion on slapping them on boxes, fenders, windshield, helmets, etc.

So far this is what I have saved up:



I figure this is a pretty important topic

Best sticker I ever saw was on a friend's bike, which he had made up specially, "Like all stickers, this hides crash damage.
"

My stickers go on my tool chests (I figure it makes more work for the thief to make them look nondescript before selling them on if they're stolen), I like to keep my bike looking low profile.

I dont know man, im not a sticker whore. I dont need people to see the stickers to know what cool shit i have on my bike, i only care about the people who can walk up and see what stuff i have on my bike and they know where it is. Brands give you these free stickers so that you will do their job for them. I have 3 stickers on my bike and they are companies and products owned by riders and do it because they love it, not overpriced trendy shit. But thats just me, always looking for that resale value

My first two stickers to commemorate riding the entire Blue Ridge Parkway south to north back in October. I think I'll reserve my stickerage for souvenirs of memorable rides.

I laughed and did a double take when i saw that sign for real. I miss North Carolina roads!

@wildman. I was trying to do the state flags to cover up the scratches. But my big Alaska flag peeled after a few good rain storms.

Yeah, I've now got a big scuff up one of my panniers from an 'off' in Morocco. Can't decide whether to leave it as it adds character or swap out the three flags that are now peeling and damaged. Decisions, decisions!
