Any suggestions on how to remove it without damaging the plastic gas tank?

I just peeled mine off and used some goo-gone to get ride of the residue. Use your fingernail and catch an edge.

I like the sissy bar on the back, nice touch to compliment the paint.

Guys we should cut him some slack. Not every idea turns out to be a great one. But it is the brave few that try things out. Most of us sit around and when the idea turns out great then we copy it.

But yeah this idea didn't turn out so great. I'd go back with the hydro painting of the camo pattern.

Kag,
Not the color I would have picked. But hey, make it your own.


No one can say you're part of the herd!
Are you going to dress it up with some graphics?

I am glad several of you like it as much as you do....amusingly petty to say the least....but amusing none the less. Now I truly get the Starbucks jokes...

I like KLR's......

Did the cases today

I like the 1199....the specs, the parts, and the design...a little bummed that it's not offered with an orange frame though. My local Italian bike dealership is picking up the brand, looking forward to giving it a ride. The airbox/filter issue remains a question mark but it sounds as though an aftermarket filter is the answer.

Nice job, KTM.

I'd like to call BS (so very tempted to go political, ask for specifics, i.e., what implied "rights"? other than those you think you know about having "learned" from faux news), but I don't want to hijack the OP's thread. To each their own. Came out a LOT better than my pathetic attempt to improve on the lame, checkered Capt. America scheme on my Dakar.
