it sure looks like you know what you're doing!
trust me, it's just an illusion
i don't know about paint....the red/black scheme is what first caught my eye to this bike and i really like it. i'm sure i could get the color matched and repaint it the same. how expensive is a paint job on a bike? like if i were to repaint all the fairings? if i were to paint it any other way, i would want something along the lines of the 2003 special edition yamaha r6/r1, black with red flames. anyway, it all comes down to cost right now. i'm happy riding it around with just the primer for a while, no problem. i just want to get it back on the road!
