What is your opinion on decals vs a paintjob on a bike?

I have seen some nice decals out there that almost look like a paintjob.

Are you riding the bike or just trailering it to shows? If riding just do decals, will get chipped, scratched, broken. If show and no go, paint looks great!

I'd say paint for the major stripes, decals for the accessory details.

2-3 colors of paint plus decals looks very race to me. Xerox 999's! Yosh K5's!

That's exactly what I would do too!

Yeah i've always wanted to paint my bike but i'm sure i'm bound to go down sooner or later and would hate to get a nice paint job all messed up. I think decals would work best.

Paint the bike, use decals for a scheme, then paint it again for that 3-D effect :lol:
