Thanks a lot guys.  I guess I got lucky and got in an injury free settlement heavy accident recently.  I was pretty depressed that my riding season was over and my bike was in pieces.  This paint and these comments make it worth it.  I'll post more in the spring when I get all my new parts put together.  I can't emphasize how much better it looks in person though, I had a few beers last night just staring at it.

It always looks better after a few beers.

Sorry about the accident, but glad you're okay and it looks like it worked to your favor.

Well, I drank  a few beers while staring at this post. It did not get any better (it was outstanding to begin with), but I am a lot happier now.

Try it with a woman.  Start with someone who's "okay" looking and then notice how she becomes more appealing as you add beer.  It works even more so if you add beer to her at the same time.

I don't mind sharing. My tank was damaged in the accident and insurance somehow figured it would cost $1900 to replace the tank even though I could find another for $1000. Anyway, I used that $1900 as my budget and it ended up costing me $1850 which included pulling the dent out of my tank. All of the side covers are painted & airbrushed too. I've probably said this 3 times now, but it looks so much better in person.
