I'd go to NAPA and have them computer match the red and just have the rest of it painted solid red IMO.
Your son's telling you to get the liter isn't he??
I know what you mean about the black/silver R1. I first saw it at the motorcycle show here in St. Louis back in February, and I could not take my eyes off of it!! I literally fell in LOVE!! But now that the dealers are carrying them, they don't appeal to me as much. (then I start to drool, and realize that the color scheme is AWESOME!!) I already have a blue/white 2001 R6, and I kind of want my next bike to be a different color. So, I may end up going with the Red. From what I have learned, the price of the new blue/white R1's aren't dropping that much either
(that's too bad, because I just bought a new blue Joe Rocket Speedmaster Leather Jacket and Blue/White Shoei Z-II Slash helmet) I am going to think about it for another week. I will probably end up buying that Red/Black/White R1!! I guess with my blue/black jacket, blue/white helmet, and RED/WHITE bike, I will be the most colorful guy to ever ride a sportbike!!!!
My son is only 1 1/2 years old, so he doesn't talk too much. But, whenever we are in the motorcycle dealership, he always starts to mumble something when I sit him on the new R1??? Is this a sign??
Hell, he probably wants something else to tear up (you know how kids are)........He has already broken damn near everyting else in my house
