I really hope I am wrong but I think that is going to look awful.
But that's just my opinion and opinions are like arm pits. Everyone has them
and the majority of them stink.

if you were to add tank grips to the side of the tank it would aid the look as it is a bit barren there, a good stripe from front fairing down the tail would liven things up too, and hopefully you go with a 600 sticker on the tail too instead of the 750 but as pj says everyones armpit stinks

Starting to think that too, can always order white ones anyway they're easily removed but will wait till the wheels are done. Play it safe with just these for now

Ordered clear stomp grips for the sides, the kit came with 750 and 1000 for the tail might leave it blank or just put it on for the craic . Considering a reflective white twin pinstripe alright have to see first will know better after the weekend

Go big or go home.
With making a bike look good, there's no quick fix.
If it were me, I'd go with this.

I agree: go all out, no "half-measures". I'd be thinking more along MotoGP lines. With the red wheels it'd look quite stunning.

I quite like the oversized suzuki on that, I can work with something like that in white...

Back to the drawing board Ah the joys of it

True... Rizla replacement decals is always an option if all else fails though the bare paintwork is really appealing to me without decals but for now I have booze to be drinking and a daycent night out
