Okay I have always had a thing for any racing scheme in Marlboro .. I have one main problem though .. I don't want to support free advertising for a tabacco companys .. but after not being able to come w/ an alternative paint scheme I am considering the Marlboro paint scheme to look like Biaggi GP500

please give me some feedback .. I don't want people bashing on my bike because of a color scheme and stickers..

The thing is I don't even smoke :D

I got it .. I'll just put YAMAHA instead of Marlboro

and on the under belly pan I can put a bunch of other stuff like Michelin or something

I could see someone targeting my bike because it has Marlboro advertise on it ...

I don't smoke but I like the loks of the bike with the name on it.

My fear is that you will get some physco non-smoker fanatic who kicks your bike over in protest!

solo, I think it was a member by the name of Joubear that did his paint like that, wasn't it? I remember seeing it in the members photos. When I saw it then I really liked it and I still do. I don't smoke either, by the way. :) But I think you have come up with a reasonable compromise and that replacing the Marlboro with Yamaha will look really good. I think what really matters is what appeals to you though. And whatever you decide on, I know it will look really :rock when you are done. :)

When you do a custom job like that, you'll either get:
a) assholes who have bad things to say
b) compliments
c) people who don't even notice
d) people who could care less

It's not too bad, only 25% chance of running into an asshole :machinegu

You can put MACHISMO instead of Marlboro. Of course you would probably be called a round mouth. Probably not a good idea-nevermind

see ya

I'm not sure I would change the Malboro name, you are afterall going for a race replica look.
