Wrapping My Ride ???
 
Hot Damn ! Thought I was buying my Dream Bike only to find a dozen or so in the area and more than I can count out on the road . I'm seeing 17 year old teens riding the same RED STREAK I'm on .
Geez , here I am thinkin , I wanna be just a little different ! SO !!! How about a wrap ? Decals don't do it for me , I don't really like Race Livery on a street bike , the graphics are for the track and I'm not a Wannabe (no offence 2 wannabes ,some day you may BE). In fact I love the tri coloured , but I can't see myself riding one .
So ,not being a look at me personality ,I also don't like melting into the crowd and I figure something tasteful in a wrap might help my ego .Any Helpful opinions and information pertaining to wraps (PROS-CONS-COST-AVAILABILITY) would be greatly appreciated .

Thanx EINSTEIN ,that's real helpful ! BUT ! I hear what you're sayin .
What I guess I should have imported was a customization that was more personalized . I'm thinking of a beautiful all black FireBlade I saw on a ride to Lake Louise about a decade back ONE of the most beautiful bikes I've seen.
I saw a 1199 in metallic grey that I fell in love with as well ,SO !!!
I figure with a wrap I can keep the bike STOCK RED and not devalue resale value if I decide to sell in the future .
I'm hoping this makes sense to those that like personal touches to their rides,We all like to add our personal touches , even though they may not be needed .
It's mine ! know what I mean ?

I've been looking at the fake Carbon Fibre wraps , which look gorgeous done right . Then again Pearlescent paint jobs have always been a fave ,but the Pearlescent wraps don't seem to have the sparkle that the paint has.
Wannabe Conservative yet still stand out .I don't wanna yell , HEY , LOOKIT ME ! KNOW WHAT i MEAN ?:o

You said no "Wannabe." Fake carbon is Wannabe. Go real, or go home. Just sayin'

and they come outta the woodwork ... Fake Carbon is Wannabe ,but it's still Gorgeous , is it not ?
You apparently took UMBRAGE to my use of the word Wannabe and I certainly don't wannabe and never have been one to FAKE IT .
I'm even at the point of checking prices and looking for someone selling stock plastic so that I may use my Pearlescence paint scheme .
But I'm in no hurry , just finished checking Craigslist and found some neat colour schemes .One scheme off a 2012 Yamaha R6 is really interesting and custom paint jobs and wrapping are there for perusal .
SO !!! just sayin , learn how to read ,better yet ,learn reading comprehension .
I know reading comprehension is taught in gr5 or 6 nowadays ,just sayin .:rolleyes:

Relax, bro. Sensitive much?

You set the criteria. I simply pointed out something you overlooked. I frankly don't care how you dress your ride. Poser/legit, show/go -- doesn't matter to me. You state, "I'm not a Wannabe," so I'm keeping you honest. In fact, I used a vernacular that was more appropriate to the way you write. I thought you might appreciate that, but I guess I was wrong.

I thought my reading comprehnsion was adequate. Perhaps I don't understand Canadian? My bad. I'm fairly fluent with French, however, if you are from the other side of Canada.

:rolleyes: <--- right back at you

p.s. Someone with less than perfect grammar should not be criticizing another's reading comprehension or lack thereof. ;)

I'm intrigued by the space between the last letter of a word and the corresponding punctuation.
