Default Custom Honda Rim Stripes, yay or nay?

Here are a few pics of some Custom made rim stripes I slapped on my F4i today.
I think they really add to the motorbike, what do ya'll think?







Also, got some "bling" parts in, New levers, mirrors, gas cap and triple tree covers.

Thanks zmds,

I actually bought two kinds of gas-cap protectors, so that they could contrast each other and kinda "pop" against each other.

If you look closely, the inside tab-key-cover is one kind of protector, then the next ring is a "Pro-Tec" cover, and then I alternated back to the first kind.
I found them both in ebay, for about $10-$15 each.
Don't remember what brand the first kind was, the other was Pro-Tec like I mentioned earlier.

Lol, yea, it's more of a "just for me to notice" mod lol.

Kinda like when I installed my Yoshi TRS and pimpbikes undertail, and asked the wife what she thought about the mods, she was like: "What mods?, what did you change?" lol

Thanks GDM!

I had two F4i's at one point, and had to sell one of them to buy another motorbike I really wanted (wife forbid more than 3 motorbikes in my possession lol)

The decision was simple, kept my Red/White F4i, and bid farewell to the other.
I love this color scheme

That trick has already been played on me, a few months back, two of my buddies with the help of my own brother, took my motorbike out from our garage and hid it for a couple hours. I almost cried. lol
Many thanks for the compliments bud

Both the yoke bolt and adjusters are from Pro-Bolt.
If memory serves me correctly, I got em' from cheapcycleparts.com
Here's another shot of em'

I'm pretty sure I saw some on ebay too.
Thanks for the comments BTW
