Default New Paint Job

For a while now I have promised pics of the new paint scheme and just haven't got around to it. I snapped a few pics after I got home tonight so sorry if the lighting isn't the best but enjoy.

Amazing job! I love the little details like the black around the lower fairing vents and the white intake louvers. Where did you get those anyway?

Oh, and the pipe: I would cut some of the length out of the mid pipe, too, so the exhaust tip is about flush with your license plate.

I bought the fairing all black from Delkevic. I put them on the bike and a friend who stripes cars for a living came over and stared at the bike for about 10 minutes and then yells out "I got it" and pulls out some pinstripe and goes to town. Then he had one of his buddies paint it for me. I was in the paint booth as they were being painted which was cool cause I got to see it go from dull black to what you see now. The guy who came up with the scheme is a stickler for details which is why the fairing vents and intake louvers are painted as well as the mirrors and ram intake covers are painted to match. Here are a few pics of the bike in the making

Dang. I need better friends. I think I only have one friend with any real trade skills.

BTW, I nominated your bike for ROTM.
