Should be even better if you put the 'KTM 1190' logo back on the tank. Just the 'KTM 1190' from the grey one, leave the orange 'adventure' part out. That would really bring it from shed made finish to nice finish.
Oh, and a wings shorty. The akra is a pain for the eye.
I never expected the masses to get it and I am ok with that..... OD Green is my favorite color anyway .....plus I wanted my KLR to stand out from all the purty shiny ones parked at Starbucks. Plus it saves money on wash & waxing. OD colored ones are the fastest....don't you know

Yes the black vinyl KTM lettering is being made presently. Got the cases mounted today. Plain and simple I like it.....but then again I have always been able to make up my own mind on decisions......even bad ones

I think it looks sweet, my wife does too! It just needs some graphics to add that little extra bit, but it's what you're doing, so I'm excited to see its final form.

Now just drag down the road behind your truck and it will be perfect.

If anything, between the angular lines and the OD, I would have guessed you drew your inspiration from this:



Right on, I dig it!

I think it looks unique. I personally really like OD. Thanks for sharing on this open and accepting forum. I mean if the guys busting your balls are your personal friends than its all in good fun. Don't get me wrong, I had a good laugh reading the posts at your expense but I would not have been so harsh.

Geez...listen to you guys. The owner likes it. I don't think he needs you all to protect him from the folks who don't.

KAG, your tank bag is the wrong color. Maybe run get some tiger stripe camo from a surplus store, and sew it on to the outside. ;)

I admire that you have the balls to do this. I had a vstrom for 9yrs, and thought about doing it at least three times a year.... Never did.
