Thanks! I'm sure I can find a panel trader here somewhere. Colour goes the same with bike and exhaust choices. We have dull, quiet bikes and tend to observe things more. Others like blinding chrome with deafening engine noises that are an assault to the senses. "Look at me!!
Vroom! I'm cool!' We prefer the sublety of passing those types when their heads are turned (looking for admirers) without them even realizing we were there. To each his own, ride and let ride.
The F650GS singles were (or still are?) produced by Aprillia. They employed a lot of.....tip toeing here......Indian and Pakistani workers. When uncrating these bikes it smelled like you were in a foreign cafeteria. We often left those bikes outside for the day.
