Especially if the passenger is a young lady in school uniform.

+3 on not doing the swing arm cover. I know most CF bits on street bikes are cosmetic, but at least most of them replace otherwise heavy plastic or metal pieces. A CF cover that does nothing but add weight just seem overly contrived. In any case, I kinda like having some brightworks on the Factory bikes, to contrast with all that black/red/white/gold textures. I can understand painting the coolant pipe and such, but masking away all the bright aluminum tail bits will end up looking Darth Vaderish.
