Default Need to slow my bike down!!!

We all know black makes a bike faster but I'm wanting to make her stand out alittle more. Anyone good with photoshop that could help me out with what my bike would look like in a few different colors. Looking at a bright white, a nice like Camaro yellow, as well as some candy reds and greens. Thanks in advance!!!

I just went from from a black bike to this. Black & gold rush (as they call it). Kind of a silvery pewter color. I really like it and it's refreshing from all black for 4 years. I think the light color would look great also with the black if it was a little more of a beige color. I have already noticed on a recent trip that this bike draws a lot more attention than my black one ever did so it obviously stands out.

Great choice 40XC...Those colors look great in the pic, I can imagine they really pop in person
My HDs were always black(either vivid or denim) no one ever commented on them, never thought much about this, I guess they were just lost in the crowd.
On the other hand, the metal-flake Sunset Red on my XC seems to always grab attention. People talk to me about this bike and never fail to make positive comments on its color.

nothing like a splash of colour!....I've always had black bikes, both shiny and flat blacks, a lot had black motors too, almost every shirt I owned was black.
With my Victory Vegas I broke out of the black and got into the metallic irridescent sparkly dark blue...and love it!

I have the Imperial Blue on my XC like MotorbikeX. It looked good then I simply put some of the new style super thin decals on it from Auto Trim Design and it suddenly popped. Got all kinds of compliments and didn't break the bank.

This kit is expensive but I think it transformed the black bike it's on. I think the owner is a member here.

Those are sweet graphics but 649.00 is definitely out of my price range

Then paint definitely is too unless you are proficient in prepping and painting.

They have many lower cost kits that look good too. On a black bike you will want to find something bright or light like red or silver. I've posted a pic of mine many times but if you haven't seen it you can see how much of a difference the red made. Oddly it looks orange against the blue but red on its own.

Bbob, that looks really nice. Graphics from the same place above?

Dont get me wrong, the flames look really good. I just personally could not shell out that much money for stick on graphics. Gotta get me some cams first

Oh; I completely understand priorities. You can see the various kits at the link below. They have many more than when I bought mine which looks to be the least expensive now. I think the contrast is the key thing.
