I know a lot of you guys are not a huge fan of flames but I live in a rather small town and there are already 6 other bikes like mine. One even has the same exact tail light, flush mounts, and Akra exhaust. I have to do something a little different so here is what I came up with.

I really like the look of the tribal flames on the SE so I am trying to decide how to do it on my blue 06.

These are the two I came up with. If anyone wants to photo shop some others I am open for suggestions.

Obviously this is from the stock photo, I have already gotten rid of the fender with an FE from fenderkit.

Yellow? Hmmm, never thought of that. Not that good with phot shop and these two came from the vinyl guy who's gonna redo the flames.

Anyone care to photoshop those flames a shade of yellow?

+1 thats why I voted other, like you said they all look alike, find a good airbrush artist and do a red/fading to yellow/ then a grey/black(smoke) like real flames. Have them start lower on the front fairing and f. fender, on a dark base looking like it's the coal/wood of the fire, then sweep back and up to the tail
My better 1/2 has a Masters in fine art and I have seen this done, awesome! if done right
JMHO

You see mine, classic green, If I didn't have the green, I'd let her go crazy, my SV650 race bike is all black, I want some type of lightning, but that has to come from the top and I want to incorporate the black helmet to the tank/fairing showing motion with it fading to the rear

Paint the flames Orange! [:p]

Maybe it's just me but Orange/Blue is a kick-ass combo....
