Looks great, doesn't matter if a bit shiny!
I've used that Plasti Dip rubber spray for it (can be removed again).

Got it on Amazon.com but Home Hardware in Canada stocks Plasti Dip spray, I needed at least 4 coats and at least 1 can per panel (don't exactly recall anymore).

After I posted that picture, I took them off and got them redone in a less shiny powder coat. The bike is going in 3 weeks though to make way for one of the new liquid cooled 12's. Hope I'm doing the right thing

So I finally decided it was time to post a pic of my new-to-me '05. Had the good fortune of purchasing the bike from another inmate last spring and have been enjoying it ever since. This photo was taken on the night I brought her home. Hopefully I can get the picture to link correctly. Here goes...
