Ideas for a plain white GTL

Hi forum members. My buddy just took delivery of his all white GTL. He asked if I could post this message to get some ideas of adding some color to his ride. He is looking for something subtle and classy but he also wants his bike to stand out a bit.
If anyone has some pics of bikes, where stripes were added, kindly post, or some creative ideas will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You can do a lot with vinyl wrap, just use your imagination.

Sounds like it's perfect already and stands out on its own.

OR

You may consider getting a forest of pine trees running along the side

I haven't seen anybody mimic the Option 719 pinstripes yet. Maybe opposite these colors, deep blue pinstripes on the white bike. You might build a bike on the BMW site with Option 719 to get a good look.

Thank you all for the pics and ideas. I told him he should use my 2019 GT sport as inspiration and use the m colour stripes in the design.

I'm thinking flames are always an option or the words "to protect and serve" with a gold star
