    Helmet for 2000 R1000R

    Does anyone have a clue if Mystic Red is closer to Wine Red or Candy Red for a matching helmet?

    My 2000 was an 1100. It was also a limited edition.

    Red is going to be hard to match...maybe you can opt for a contrasting color. Or a graphics helmet with some red in it.

    Is Shoei black or Arai black a better match for my Metzeler Z6s?!?

    Just kidding. My R11R is a 2000 model. AFAIK the earliest R1150Rs came to the US as 2001 models?

    I've got a mystic red '99 R1100R. In the bright sun it's more like the candy, in the shade/overcast days it's more like the wine. Just what you wanted to hear. Right? Probably doesn't help at all.

    Silver seems to match large portions of the bike really well. Personally, I go with the bright white with retroreflective stickers, but then I don't care if I clash. Neither does my 'R, she just keeps foolishly starting.

    They arrived in the USA as 2002 models, but were manufactured in 2001. In many other parts of the world, the calendar year of manufacture IS the model year.

    On what part does your R1000R wear a helmet?
    I used to post here, but now I don't.
