OMG...forgot to tell about the goofy crap I'm trying out. Just to show that no idea is too goofy to ponder...
I looked at it a bit and tried to think what could bring out some more MotoGP taste than just a paint job. Just having the Repsol Paint job didn't really say that it was a motorcyle theme that I was going for unless you knew what Repsol meant to the cycle world. Anyway.
I went out, took the springs off my exhaust can, and brought the carbon Akrapovic can in to see what it'd look like mounted. "Different" was one thought. After a cool Becks, "stupid" became the correct thought
But it did bring up an issue I'm trying to deal with today. In one aspect, I'm going to be using water, and want as much of it possible BELOW the hardware. Following this, I'm leaning toward having the Power Supply on the bottom PS mount, so the top area may just get some small exhaust pipes...just depends on if I can find some junk caps laying around that I can chop up and TIG onto the plate somehow. May be further down the road, but everything is being considered.
The sponsers for bikes are totally rare to them alone, so it may be enough. I dunno. But Akrapovik, Factory, HRC, etc... may just scream "BIKE". Or it may just mummble.
If you haven't noticed, I'm really taking this seriously even though I goof a bit. I just have never done anything that really looked good. Most of my attention has been on the hardware and performance, and if it looked good, then it was a side-benefit and not on purpose. I really want a case that not only screams, but can proudly pearch up on my desk. And this will match my computer room decor of memoribilia and artwork I've always turned my area into.
