My new to me again bike...





Just got her back from the paint booth today. It certainly needs something to break up the colors, but I want to keep it clean and try to maintain a classic look. The Stock Panniers are going. Never to be used again. I am looking to put on a set of Givi's (doubtfull) or some good old fashined steel boxes (likely). In the meantime, the one over sized top box will do all duties.

Look on the gas tank and you will see the new Tiger logo.
I kinda like it, but I am unsure.


This is how mine started out.

if you do the new one wouldn't you have to upgrade to the 1050 motor to match? That'd be a nice mod "thinking it has the 955" I guess you could just trim it off... how boring would that be...

I like the progress. Looks new.
How about something a little different, Use the new tiger logo with a faded ghosted forward lunging real tiger image underneath? Attachment 3560

Attachment 3561

Is it just me, or is there a striking resemblance?

Looks great up close! Just needs some cool decals. I'd watch ebay the next month and find something.

Get a headlight modulator and some PIAAs with red and blue covers. You could probably get through traffic pretty quick.

Nope. Still solid white.

Just trying to see what I want.

I am thinking I want something more personal that stripes, with out going overboard.

Nope.
Still plain white and I am actually liking it.
I have had plenty of ideas, but nothing that has really been worth chasing.
