1050 in an unusual color
on: 04 October, 2021, 08:58:02 PM
I made a short amateur video as a summary of wrapping my Tiger. I think it looks unusual enough to be worth sharing - modesty isn't one of my strong suits :008: I know black rims are missing, maybe someday?  :015:

Nicely done  :028:

All those curves and ridges must be a pain to wrap smoothly. I know I would make a complete mess of it, have trouble enough wrapping simple boxes for Christmas. :034:
Larger than life and twice as ugly!

You coulda just bought a Burnt Orange in the beginning... :038: On the flick, it looks the same, although not glossy. Have you seen the ricers are wrapping rims these days? Maybe that would look good? I HATE black rims - looks like you never washed the wheel for 100k miles  :015:.

A matter of practice. This is not the first motorcycle I wrapped but the fact is you have to be patient. :038:

Haha, true, but I've been looking for this bike for so long that the color choice was secondary :015: Gloss black rims are very hard to keep clean, but with matte rims it is not such a problem, I've got ones in my KTM. Wrapping these shapes would be too time consuming, but I was thinking of rubber coating, like Plasti Dip or something. On the other hand, those silver rims are not so bad, I don't know anymore  :084:
