    I hate to break it to you, but I think I like your paint job better than the OEM paint. If it were me and I were doing such a spectacular job, I would paint the tank as well.

    The tank would also look really cool in black with all those silver paint accents.

      Serious???  Please share the brand and type of paint. I may want to use it on something in the future.

      My biggest problem with painting is I have no patience and guaranteed I will touch something too soon and then there's a big, stupid finger print in the middle of the whole thing.

      I hope you picked up that screw laying next to the bike before you moved it

      Looks really nice! I ended up going with the Corbin chin fairing which was pre-painted at the factory and was supposed to be the original factory color but it's a little darker silver than the bike, so I guess I'll have it repainted next year.

      Your pint probably faded a bit from the sun.
