Mydixiewrecked and QuikSanD you are so right, with Black swingarms it would look twice as better. Still it is what it is, you can't have it all. I'm going to do some more reading thru this forum and try to get some guidance on this bike before buying parts for it.

Sure you can, just powdercoat it. Prolly cost $50

I think what would look sick too is get the Tecbike cat cover and powdercoat that granite grey.

Congrats mate! You will absolutely love the bike, especially after the first service.

Without coming across too forward, I have just installed an Austin Racing system. I have the BMW supplied Akra slip on spare. I have not advertised it yet (never listed or sold anything on eBay!) and would be open to a reasonable offer. I am in Australia and would happily pay the freight if the price was right. Let me know if you are interested.

Enjoy the bike!

Congrats brother. She is gorgeous.

Be sure to post up pictures when you get her out into the beautiful countryside.

Thanks I most definitely will post the pictures. It sad she has to sit for six months, all I can do is admire her for now. Starting April she will be doing what she was created to do. By then she should have her carbon attire on including the BMW AKRA slip-on Exhaust. I still do love your red/white.
