Default What color?

Hey guys,

Looking for your guys opinion here. The bike is going in for paint this winter and i am doing a pearl white with a touch of blue flake in it. Should i paint the front fender and rear tire huger white or black? Or should i paint the front fender white and leave the huger black?

Thanks

IMO, paint them all white. Imagining the bike in your siggy in all white, would look just as good as it does all yellow; monotone. What happened to the cooper colored bike? That color was nice.

I hate all white bikes so I'm bias. I'ts such an overdone color and they always look dirty and just remind me of crappy catalac escalade. That being said anything you can paint that's not white, i'd do it
There's just so many better options then just "white"
this is what I did to my F4i

*p.s. On a practical standpoint, the hugger and front fender will be more dirty then any other part of your bike, painting them white will be a huge Pain in the booty

I have to say that is sick.. It probably will be a pain in the *** keeping the white clean but i have a girl friend that looks good in a bikini that washes it for me as well as a daughter that im sure would love to wash her daddy's bike.

Incognito: I actually sold that.. It was an F4 with about 30,000 on it and i wanted to try out the fuel injected scene. So far it has treated me nicely.

i would paint the hugger black, too much color down there will draw the attention away from the important pieces..it should compliment the bikes coloring, not be the bikes coloring. Fender should be the color of the bike.
