Tech Spec Graffiti question

So I recently acquired some Tech Spec Snake Skin Traction pads seen here




My question to you the .net community is that I have a 2008 Graffiti edition seen here




Well should I bag the idea of having the traction pads because it will cover up some of the graffiti stickers or should I go for it. You opinions would be greatly appreciated!

If you want it, and think they'll be effective I say go for it. The area that they're covering up is covered up by you normally anyway.. and there's still plenty of grafitti to oogle over.

You'll love them. Go for it.

Mine cover up the tank honda wing graphic but leave a tiny bit of it sticking out. It bothers me a bit visually, but how much I like them outweighs that.

If you actually rode your damned bike then you wouldn't be asking such a reh-tarded question.

That wasn't nice . I ride my bike all year round, and that's no small feat being from Salt Lake City. It's America if we weren't all a little retarded things like your mother saying yes to your father when it came time for baby making never would have happened, and you wouldn't be here. Just wanted to open a debate about it Mr. Duche McGuche. I take it that's a yes vote to put them on? You never really made it clear!

I voted YES, though I do not agree that they will make you ride like Dani, lol!

Your knees cover that area when you ride anyway. In my opinion, keeping the awesome looks of the decals there is not worth sacrificing the benefit of added grip when riding...do it!

Then post pics.

I will forever refuse to recognize the limits that others would place on what I can, and cannot do.

Wow got some nice folk on this forum haha. I say try it out and see if you like em. Like others have said you dont really see the graphics when your riding. Dont think their for you then take em off. Waste of alil bit of money but then you'll know.

Live Fast and Die Young!!

Depending how you ride, will really determine their worth/effectiveness.. But as already stated, your legs cover them up anyways so I vote YES!
