Its FINALLY done!! :D

Took me a month just to decide on the two colors for this design. When I bought the yellow I was a little unsure if I would like it. In a way the yellow is totally hot but part of me thought it might be a little over the top(subjective). In an effort to break up the overwhelming yellow a little and also tie in my red riding gear I decided on the main graphic body to be a dark metallic red(its actually called Autumn Maple) and the shadow to be black. After applying the graphics and rolling it into the sun I have to say it does exactly what I wanted. BTW, these decals were from www.tapeworks.com and they were $100 delivered to my door.

Yellow needs all the help it can get.;)

I like the way you have broken up the yellow. Good job

I am interested in tapeworks too, but I was wondering about the durability of them. What do you think; will they hold up to years of sport-touring in the rain, sun, and all the muck??

Roost,

Ron from Tapeoworks claims they are OEM grade vinyl. 5 to 7 year guarantee.....I havent heard anything negative about tapeworks to date so I decided to try. The kits they send are first rate. Come with great instructions and practice pieces.

They should last a long time. The vinyl I put on my car's windows last 2-3 years but that gets wet and stays out in the sun all the time which really kills the vinyls by drying it out. On a bike parked inside most of the time you shouldn't have any problems till you drop it. ;)

Very subtle/clean yet it stands it apart from the straight up yellow's. I like!

I don't really like it. Well, I wouldn't do that to my bike even if it was yellow. It could be the colors or it could also be the design.
This is just one man's opinion; I hope it doesn't matter much to you.
However, good job putting them on there.
