Decal job on my 88 slingshot

So my new bike needed decals to break up all that blue. Went to a recommended place called Graphic fx signworks. I have been looking at lots of pics of old gsxr bikes and came up with the stuff I liked and they made them and installed them all for about $250. I'm happy with the result except for the tank badge as I think it is too small so they will put on a bigger one. And the tail badge will be lowered as well.

hehe..yep that's me too. My guess is that there are probably a few who are members of both. Gotta love the Suzuki!!
Silver decals like mine would look great on the black too.

I think that Yosh needs to be rotated about 70 degrees and attached to the passenger rearset? Seems to be positioned way too low...
