White V-Strom?

Seeing how this site is called StromTrooper.com does anyone have a painted white V-strom? I did a search and came up with nothing. Just wondering how it looks.

There's one around here.

Strange the effect the white color has - at first glance I thought it was a BMW F650CS.

I have a re=painted white - no labels. Exhaust painted flat black
(sorry, no pics yet) See Post #11
I think it's the best looking colour yet.

White V-Strom

Hi, I have one - just purchased a month or so ago in Australia. My first bike in a long time and I love it. Had a lot of positive comments although I will admit that white was not a colour that I would ordinarily have chosen for my bike.

I also really like the white. I have an '08 GL1800 that's pearl white and have considered painting my '06 Vee to match.

That bike is gorgeous in white. I always did like white bikes. Never owned one though. I always seem to end up with red, which everyone knows is the fastest color for the Vees.

Pearl white Wee

I saw one in the south of France a few days ago. It was in a herd of bikes and scooters parked along the waterfront. It was so beautiful it made everything else look ordinary.

I just bought a flat black '08, but all else being equal I'd trade it in for the pearl in a second.

Awesome

I might just have to make the full Stromtrooper conversion, but then I'd have to buy new gear to match.
