To all you guys getting the Bumblebee because you hope it might save your bacon, my old '98 R1100GS had the bulbous Adventure tank and I had it painted to match the original red & white 75th anniv. scheme, it had bright yellow PIAA 540 ion crystal lights mounted out front, I wear a big red, white & black BMW Rallye II clown suit, and a bright white helmet. And in spite of all that "visibility," I can't begin to count the number of people who "just didn't see" me and turned left in front of me. I swear, I looked like a rolling hazard warning! Don't get me wrong, I'm all for visibility. But counting on a little yellow & black paint to remove our cloak of invisibility could be fatal wishful thinking.

Of course, if the paint scheme just floats your boat, well then...

I will almost certainly be getting one in a few years.... after my R32 is paid off and I have room for two bikes.
