Neon green, yellow or orange might improve visibility. Those patterns are sort of neat, seen up close, but will act like camouflage at a distance.

Are those stock handguards, wrapped? Or entirely aftermarket? If the latter, which ones and how well do they fit?

I don't care one bit what others think... I can't see my bike when I'm riding it
