Just wanted to say that it seems like the recent trends in graphics are much more tasteful than they were in the recent past (Triumph TT excluded-I'm sorry but that paint is ridiculous). I never cared much for the alien-blood yellow on my '95 F3 but the only choice I had was black or white background. Most of the latest bikes have more subdued graphics or nice, monochromatic schemes. I'm certainly not against eye-catching bikes but some of those schemes looked like they let a crackhead loose in Earl Scheib's garage (apologies to any crackheads out there). Maybe I'm too conservative at my ripe old age?

I think at one time the manufacturers wanted to make bikes look like toys. I think they try to put some class into the graphics now to pick up on old men. I just mean the civilized crowd likes things to match, where as a crackhead like my self likes bikes with different colored this and that.
