Can't pick just one and have a reason for each

A. White and orange - Easy to keep clean and white bikes always look very clean and smooth.

B. Black and orange - As you said it looks sinister but also a flat black bike looks like it just wants to be ridden the out of and I am currently doing a satin black with candy red accents zx10 so I am kinda partial to it. Pics to come.

So In the end White looks great but its almost as smooth as glass in a sense. Looks great, slick, smooth and very clean but like a proper rich girl she won't take it in the .

Satin black on the other hand shes like a good girl closet freak she's pretty but nothing to special and it's exactly that which makes her so beautiful and you can ride her any which way up and down as hard as you want and put her up wet and she will love it.

IMHO

Also I have had both a white and black bike and loved them both but I think this new one is gonna be my favorite.

If you choose blue, I know it isn't exactly the same, but with mention of stripes too, be ready for this....

I'd love to do the blue off that porsche or the new 'stangs. But I'll probably go with something neutral... white or black. Tired of looking at red on mine.

Haha, I had at one time wanted to paint mine that Gulf Oil Racing Blue and Orange (a little different than the new mustang blue), but similar.


OP, go for the orange and blue. Very unique.

I see that we have similar taste. May I recommend grey/orange for super badassery level?

im going blue and orange simply because you can get a night rod in that satin black with orange stripes......but I like to be different. You could even incorporate the the white in there by doing blue with orange stripes, then do the outline of the stripes in white....just a thought

Black, but it has be flat - and done right. Not all painters know how to do a flat paint job right.

I love white cars, but white is not a color on bikes. There just isn't enough bulk there to make it look good - even with a pearl white.
