What do you think?

My 2000 929 was originally white and red. Everybody I met in town new teh bike and kept asking me if it was So, and So's bike? all the time and it ws beginning to get annoying. I decided to be be different So i put a new erion racing tail on it and painted it to look OEM yet Not in a color combo that came from the factory. So Now I have a custom one of a kind bike that looks like OEM. What do you guys think?

Re: What do you think?

Overall I think it looks good. Although my eyes seem to draw to the white sticker on the tail section. I think if it were my bike I would remove it, but somehow leave the 929 RR logo on there, or just get one from tapeworks maybe. Nice Job.

Re: What do you think?

The only honda that I know of that is offered in black with red is a 954 and they have red and black tails So I know there isnt another 929 like this and still looks Factory to someone who doesnt know the 929's.

Re: What do you think?

Ive had a few people tell me that. I think If i removed it that it would take away from the factory appeal to it. and I think it offeres some break up in the bike. I bought the erion tail brand new so I plan to leave it. It seems to me that the angle I look at the bike hinders how i feel about the white. Some angles I think it looks out of place and some I think it looks good and offeres break up.

I like it but it needs the white wing kit.

Re: What do you think?

What do I think? I think my government lies to me on a regular basis. I think the Major
League Baseball season is far too long. I think that Lee Harvey Oswald
could not have killed JFK without help. I think that mankind has rendered
Natural Selection obsolete by embracing its stupid and weak, and trying to
lower the rest of us to that same level. I think that every child deserves
to be raised by at least one, preferrably two, parents, not a commercial
(or, even worse, *government*) daycare provider. I think that...

Oh... you mean about the 929... sorry!! White tail number plates need to be red.

Re: What do you think?

The Red is the factor original on the bike. The tail is a brand new Erion I don't really intend to take the white off unless it gets scratched or something. Thanks for the replies That is exactly what i was looking for.

Re: What do you think?

The paint job looks great. Can't say the same for the quality of the pics.

Re: What do you think?

You want us to think. What's gotten into you?


As far as the bike, it looks good. So does the number plate.
