Re: whatcha think??

Can i ask you one question, what room is the bike parked in? Looks like the lounge.

Are you going to go around any of the other bits on the left / right lower fairings? Looks good!

Ah, now i see. Temperatures over in England are normal really, not too much humidity. Would be nice getting AC over here, but im going to be moving soon so there is no point.

The bike does look nice, on my wheels i have the yellow reflective tape, shines in the dark... Havent bothered with any special body work as i know it will see the road alot, and might even see the ground once or twice. Not that im going to push it over, but in case.

Re: whatcha think??

V. nice. Been thinking about changing the scheme on my bike while I'm on the mend and can't ride. This is giving me the incentive to actually do it.
