    I still can't quite get over the graphics where the fairing "flows" into the tank. It's clever, but I must be too conservative. I wonder what it would look like to replace the white/red tank sides with the '05-'06 grey panels.

    It does seem a little busy, but I do like the way it makes the tank look smaller by the blending.
    The granite grey looks black but in the sunlight it has small metal flake in it. Awesome.
    I did add my initials and MOA number to the right side after the BMW roundel.

    It's growing on me...usually the graphics are the collectors' bikes in the future.
    Actually the Granite Grey is the background under the fairing graphics and the color of the '05 and '06 bikes. The black on the tank is Saphire Black. I don't think there were ever any factory painted plain Saphire Black tank panels. But they have used that metal flake black before...somewhere. Granite Grey tank panels would match the fairing paint. I thought that's what I would do...but since they had such a hard time keeping them running (until now), I didn't buy one. And now the dealer here closed. So maybe wait for a straight black one like I have now in the '08 that we have.
