Custom Paint and/or Graphics Thread

I really love seeing all the bike pics, but generally if you've seen one in any particular color, you've seen 'em all. What about a thread dedicated to pictures of custom paint and/or custom graphics that could be a sticky?

I'm sure that the guys who do graphics or custom paint their V-Stroms would love to show them off, and I think if they were all grouped together it would eventually turn into a great resource for those who are thinking about customizing their V-Strom and would like some ideas.

Any interest in this?

That was my '04. I sold it last august, someone totalled it last November (or so).

I chose orange just because it was *different*. I did get tired of people yelling "nice KTM!".

All of it is reflective and glows at night, when the light hits it.
