headlight tape?

Anyone point me in the right direction? I am looking for a sticker, cover, whatever for my headlight to use during track days. I have been using the blue tape lately but since I am now addicted I would like to have something more appealing and cosmetically pleasing. Any suggestions? Thanks.

you can swap from track to street in about 30-45 minutes with an extra set of plastics.

I used blue painters tape, then covered it with a more appealing duct tape. That way it comes off easier/cleaner.

I do the same.

But you can't beat race plastics. I probably shouldn't talk though, I still have stock plastics on! But to my credit, I'm waiting to get the new bike before I think about race plastics.

I like the plain blue look, but thats just me. Other than that, I liked the checkered flag ones. I think Candie Fahst had them.
