Mine is apart right now as I am getting some parts hydro dipped in carbon fiber for a more perminat change. My lower fairing had some rock chips so I thought it was a good time for a change and I will add clear bra to protect the part where the chips were. I also just installed a Remus exhaust. Now that I have seen how yours came out maybe I should have done a wrap instead.

To the OP......awesome job. Love it. Including the color. The carbon fiber addition really creates a great look overall.

I agree, it does look really nice. You did a really good job on something that takes lots of patience to do, and according to my wife, I have none. :D Plus, this way when you start to get tired of it, just change the wrap and it's literally like buying a new bike. For me it's the only way of keeping anything for more then a couple of years. The only car I ever kept for more then 3 years is my 2010 jeep wrangler that looks nothing like it did when I originally bought it 11 years ago. What's the secret you ask? Change something on it every year... lol

After all of the suggestions from those visiting this thread and after visiting my local BMW motorcycle dealership, I was reminded that the blue needed to be broken up a little bit more. The dealership also reminded me that the blue I had chosen reminded them of the BMW Motorrad racing decal. That decal had some red in it. I chose to add some red pinstriping, which really helped the overall look of the bike. Thanks to all for your suggestions. Safe riding...see you down the road.

Pretty snazzy, as my Mom would say.
