destickerfication

I know many people remove the warning lables, and some remove the decals also. I assume the reason for removing these things is asthetic. However I'm curious. For those that DON'T remove the stickers (assuming there are some), why didn't you?

Well, I removed most of the stickers, but not all. I left the VIN decal and the white data decal on the left side of the frame, and the warning decal on the chain guard. They all have numbers on them that may prove to be useful, so I left them on.

Stickers? What stickers? I'm too busy riding to care about what factory stickers and labels look like on my bike. And I bet nobody else cares that I don't care that every sticker that came with my bike is still on my bike.

One thing I don't do, however, is add to the load. I don't apply stickers to any vehicle I own, other than the one I buy from the state every year. Bumper sticker philosophy has never done anything to change my life or my attitude.

I haven't removed my stickers yet. I picked my bike up last January, when it was below zero in Boise. Been too cold. Suppose to be in the 70s tomorrow. I think some stickers may be disappearing soon.

I removed the idiot stickers from the fairing. All other stickers (and the Suzuki logo) have remained intact.
