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.

I disagree......Pearl white looks awesome on bikes. But I may be biased

I'd go with white and add some orange graphic type stuff or accents. Forget the blue.

You're right, bro. Now, that busa's got a lot of pearl white.

I was more referring to bikes that have small splashes of color here and there.

First choice--blk/orange, but the blue has some appeal. I just don't know if it translates to the bike quite the same.

I feel like the blue/orange is already tied up in autos too much already.

People will be asking if FORD made your bike....

Gotta admit, that does make a solid case for it.

You should think about invisible with orange stripes..... Really cool. I saw it on a bike near Gallaria - I think, couldn't really tell for sure...

yeah, it basically is a small car....and I do understand where your coming from. You do need a fairly large surface area for it to look really good...
