Default I'm having my bike painted, what colors that you've seen are eye catching?

It's currently red and needs some cosmetic work. I was thinking of white, but having second thoughts. British racing green?

Going to make the choice Friday afternoon.

Wow, I just talking with my Pops this morning and told him I dropped some panels off from my XC to have professionally painted matte black. Pop was a hot-rodder back in the day and he's still modeling and building N-scale trains, so he's got a decent eye for color and detail. Anyway, he said; "that bike of your's would look real good if did the whole thing matte black with red edging"...Then I think the old hot-rodder kicked because he added;"you'll also want some red/blue flames coming off the head-light and on the lower bags but don't over do them" .... Hmmm

I like colors that are not only "eye catching" but that you don't see everywhere. When I bought my Cross Country, I really wanted the Antifreeze Green but it was the end of the model year and there wasn't one available anywhere near me.

That color is bit bright for me. I'm thinking of something that isn't stock after a friend said "you can get that bike in white, why not paint it something you can't"

That is sounding interesting, but what do you mean by red edging? Any images that would help? Thanks!

I'm not sure exactly what Pops had in his mind when he said that but I imagine he was picturing red banding to break up large areas of black, like the fairing and tank seams, maybe the bag lid tops etc. If I ever got a serious notion to do a complete repaint(which I don't....) I'd have to mock some ideas up with plasti-dip to find out what might get the look I wanted.

I like some of the paint schemes on the new bikes. But if you want to see colors go to a auto paint sore and ask for custom colors. You'll be overwhelm
