My New Bike

Hi guys

Finally got around to getting a few shots of my new bike. I had the blue DL1000K7 which had a black front fairing (around the headlights) and side panels above the exhaust. The black bike I bought came with a silver front fairing and side panels, which I didn't like, so I had those pieces swapped. The black bike is now all black, and I also attached a shot of my blue bike which now has the silver front fairing and panels. Some may not like, but I do, and at least they're both unique!

They both look good, IMO. That all black is killer sweet.

Wish You Were Here...

muffler shields

paint the muffler shields black and you'll have a "stealth" bike.

I have the black Vee with the silver fairing/exhaust covers. When I bought my Givi luggage set (flat black), my wife told me it looked like a bike Batman would ride. A few days later, I get three Batman stickers in the mail...wife claims innocence, but I just can't believe she didn't have a hand in it...and no, I have no plans of putting the Batman stickers on my Givi cases. Ride safe, ride often.
