The stripes? They look really cool! The light blue looks great on the white.

I think the choice of color is great, too. Not something that would come to mind first off, but sets off the white very nicely.

I bet Photoshop helps mightily these days in choosing, though

Very nice! I like how you didn't make the stripes align and how they aren't straight. It looks awesome. I just did my scooter stripes tonight too. But I didn't have your creativity. I just did the standard straight look. Now I wish I'd done it your way.

I'm digging it.

Lokky's heavily considering racing stripes, or art on his cowls. I suggested a wrap on his cowls and I had to explain the concept to him; which, without photos, and evidences of exactly what I was talking about, I was poor at.

I love those two colors on the white. Blue is my original favorite color Smile

Blue is also my "original" favorite color. Which is why I like this so much.

It's funny remembering that, favorite colors, and what not.

Now it's just "black" and I move on. But when the sky is at it's bluest blue, I remember....times gone past.

Holy cow k1dude what if she....didn't mean to do it that way? Sad

Looking sharp!

I wish my other half wanted one. I wanted to get a white one too, and deck it out in Storm Trooper theme Razz

Stripes on an irregularly curved surface look different depending on what angle you view them.

Something is different about melann's stripes though. Especially the thin darker blue stripe. Maybe it's just camera distortion. I hope not, because I like it like the photo shows. When you look at the stripes I just put on my scoot, it looks straight no matter what angle you view them.

Melann's looks like stipes you'd see on Disney's "Cars." If I ever re-do my stripes, I want that look.

Then she shouldn't change a thing, because it's WAY better the way she did it. I always admire the whimsical artisans that come up with all the creative designs at Disney. I put these stripes into that category, so I'm paying her the highest compliment I can give. She's in good company. If her stripes were a mistake, keep making mistakes like that!

I like it! It adds a nice pop to the white.

...I'm doing different stripes again- just thought I'd share.
Photoshop is not as helpful as you may think. So, since it's going to be raining for the next 4 days, and I'm waiting on a new relay for the turn signals (they're more visible when they blink really fast though Razz). Might as well do the whole two birds thing. Wink

Nice! Glad you posted this because I'm looking at a Blackjack; if I end up getting it, I was thinking of adding stripes to "match" my car:

I'm usually not a fan of white scoters, but that's REALLY sharp.

I agree with the others .... very sharp! Although I'm pretty sure that's silver and not white.

This combo kind of reminds of this sidecar that has always been on my "wish list of things I'll never own" ...
