Didn't have any pics of my Yamaha FZ6 as a "Custom", so I just submitted one of it fully-laden before I rode from MO to GA and back last fall. (I "customized" it as a Pack Mule!)



Not a snowball's chance of "making it", but hey - you never know - it might make some Yamaha rep shoot milk out of his nose or somethin'!

Default awesome

Bikes like this I can look at all day, but not choppers or cruisers. Different strokes.

I want to customize my Ninja..but don't know where to go here in Seattle i.e to get somone, a guy who specializes in bikes, who can paint body work, chome wheels etc.. Maybe I take it to a car guy.. any suggestions?.. Geting tired of the stock look...and the racer boy stripes/graphics don't age well. Maybe I just send the body work to some place in CA..

Can't you just take it to work and get some fins and a turbine engine ?

Right why didn't I think of that.. There is a hanger right next to my office where some volunteers are restoring a B-29. I bet those guys who help...

B-29, huh? Well, there's your theme. Do up your Ninja in the paint and markings of the Enola Gay. Should go over real well with the Yamaha folks.

Perhaps if he painted it like the '06 R1LE? Think Yamaha would notice?
