Unless you are wanting to hide in the bushes and do stealth camping, then clean the bike(if you wish) then camp or do whatever you want
Hi Travelling Strom.
I should have been a bit more precise, I'm not trying to hide in the woods, I'm trying to tone the bike down so that when I leave it unattended, it's not so ... welll bling bling bling!!!. Bright blue is very noticeable, especially in dull and grey places. This might not make any difference but as I mentioned before, it might sound silly.
I have a black one the same and there is a fair bit of difference. I cant use that one as its not kitted out for off road.
Maybe lack of washing (the bike that is) will be the answer.
My wee adventure is not about following the ethos of this site in full. I'm doing my own thing and this is just part of it. This website is the best thing for travellers on bikes. I don't necessarily agree or go with everyones else ideas, but its the best source for info as you know. That's why I joined the site.
Maybe water colours, one for everyday of the week perhaps?
