I'd still worry about the durability of it, but I guess you could always redo it assuming it wasn't too costly to get it done right.

It's 3M Di-Noc. Very good stuff. It is warrantied for 12 years indoors application and 4 years outdoors. Laminate it with a UV laminate and get another 2-3 years outdoors. You can make it glossy with laminate. The adhesive is pressure sensitive with air egress to eliminate air bubbles. It is completely removable with zero damage. I have used it many times. Very expensive compared to regular intermediate vinyl. Bike wraps have not been very popular, but we do them. Done properly it looks as good as paint from 2 feet away. Upon close inspection you can tell it is all decals, but hey, all motorcycles have decals on them unless you had it custom painted....It is a cheap alternative and definitely can make some scratched up fairings look pretty darn good at a fraction of the cost of a custom paint job or new bodywork.
More info?

Real CF is quite addicting, not to mention expensive. The wheels have bit me the hardest to date.

I've been looking at this kit to "skin" my hugger, since no one makes a real CF version...

Are you looking for an actual kit? Bike Skinz performance cycle wraps are cut for your specific model, and won't look cheezy. They have a pic gallery and can do custom work. There may be someone in Houston that can do it as well. bikeskinz.com

The CF kit TexLurch is linking to looks like a sold product, just not as easy as the Di-Noc.
