Heelp me Decide

I had two designs photoshopped onto my bike. There are things that I like about both of them and I can't decide which to go with.

This is where I need your help. Help me decide which of the 2 look better on the bike.
Please disregard the color o them , because the black will match the flat/matte black of the bike. These were just to see if how "land of the rising sun" flag would look.

So here they are and please vote. I know many of you may not like either , I'm just asking which you like better of the two.
WE WILL CALL THIS ONE THE FIRST FLAG


WE WILL CALL THIS ONE THE SECOND FLAG

Just to give you guys info on this. I took both pics to a local vinyl car wrap shop and they said regardless of which design I go with.
It will be $300 to make and install them.

first flag

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Are they doing the tail section as well?

yes, depending on which design. One design includes the tail, the otrher doesnt. the whole job both sides 300 installed.

Although, I may see if it's a better idea to have the tail painted. I dunno

That is a steal. How would I get in touch with them? I want to do an all white wrap on the new 954.

I'll hit you with it tomorrow. I left their card in my glove box and the ol lady took my car to work with her tonight.

To be honest, I had to haggle the hell out of them for that price. I still think it's too much.

That's definitely a steal at $300. Question is, is it going to come out looking good at that price

It better!!!

I can't believe how overwhelmingly the first flag is winning. It was the one I prefered but my wife doesn't like the first one a single bit. Thats what actually sparked this thread. She said the first one looks wierd. She made me doubt my own taste.

I have boots and why buy a shock if the one I have does just fine for my riding style?

Uh yeah $300 is a steal. I don't know ANYONE that would put a wrap on for $100

You do it and then see if you would charge your friends $100 to do theirs

Oh yeah the first one

It could take days to put all that vinyl on, gotta make sure it's lined up exactly right with no bubbles. Gotta take your time doing it or it won't look good. Go with black ... it will make your bike look bigger!

Any luck finding the contact info for these guys?
