I like it plain.

I'm with Lockjaw, I like the plain look. How did you paint it? What did you use? It looks great.

Plain. Decals just make a bike look junky unless it's Moto GP

And the winner is....

None of them! Had a sign shop make me up a couple of these (they are slightly smaller than stock) and a couple that are a little larger than stock. Also had some bigger letters that say KLR 650 in red, but they just look dumb. I should specified a font, and since I didn't, she made the lettering kist like the kawasaki letters. Oh well. Live and learn. I'll probably put them up for grabs if I don't find a use for them.

Also....I know it looks crooked in the picture, but it's the me...I made sure it was even!
