    Any experts who can change the bike color?

    I am too stupid to be able to do this: I want to see what an R1200RT would look like painted the color of the 2000 Honda Interceptor, the yellow version. I've attached a photo I found online of the Honda, and will attach in the next post a photo of an RT. Over on the BMWST there's a thread showing a stunning red conversion a fellow did, and it got me to thinking about my dearly departed VFR. If this is easy for someone, I'd sure appreciate it.

    TIA.

    I kind of like it...

    You might try lightening it slightly. Maybe by using an overlay?

    The lighting is so different between the shots it's hard to know how the paint would react.

    Dearly departed VFR?

    Why "dearly departed" Mark? Wrecked? Sold? Traded off? Or just missed? I am just wondering....

    I sold it three or four years ago, when I decided I "needed" a full on track bike, and thought 3 bikes in the garage was too many. Have missed it ever since. The track bike lasted about four months before I somersaulted it and sold the remains.
