I don't like the paint-stripes either. There's another on your side. I don't HATE them. But I'd rather have a less curvy pattern at least, were I to have one.
That said, riding it for a bit would be rather fun before getting into any repainting or the like. I'm into the painting/repairs right now and wish I was riding mine for a bit first (though I didn't have quite as much choice, needing a new speedo cable and so on and so forth).
