Re: White 929
IMO, white bodywork looks better when it's over a black frame/swingarm/subframe. Also, the less gold bits (casings, forks) the better. White wheels and polished lips are a bit similar so again, there it doesn't stand out as much.
That 2004 R1 pic i posted up in another topic, it's white bodywork and wheels on black everything else, even the headlights have a black housing... that's factory i know but it just adds to the whole look.
On monday past, I was at Brands Hatch and there was a 2004 GSXR1000 in street bodywork but all white, everything, except the wheels, they were gold, to match his gold forks, gold rearsets. His frame was silver and the only time the bike looked good is from an only rear or only front shot... from side, there was too much mixture of colour that didn't really go that well... sometimes a pearl white or an off white goes really well with gold but not alpine white...
i'm not sure what colour you could go short of flo yellow or orange to really get seen at night but if a cager doesn't want to see you, they just won't.
