Then, chrome, rattle can chrome to be specific, as a tribute to all the chrome fendered bikes of old, it might look ok from 100' away. Then the various combos used on the 11/12GS line, some I really like.

But the greens you used, perfect. I wonder how close Derusto comes to that color?

Or how about this, I'm only a couple hours away, maybe a wintertime painting party is in order. One side of your bike one color, the other side of mine to match, then something else on side 3, to match side 4, or not.

HA! Painting party it is! Though I'm thinking the party should be held at a local powder coating facility just to be sure we get it right. ;) The rattling of paint cans next to a $12k bike (my first real bike in fact) makes me nervous. Though after a case of ice cold Rainiers are consumed, I'd probably be into it.
Bloody shins are my wedding ring.
