Custom paint ideas

I need suggestions on a paint scheme for my 2003 yamaha R6. I've decided that with my tax refund, i want to paint it I've been thinking of a black and white paint job (not just plain, but with designs). I've also been thinking of keeping it blue, and paint the rims golden. any suggestions. photoshop help would be nice.

Im planning on going with the sickest idea on here..so get your photoshop windows open and lets see em fellas!..er..and ladies Who knows, post an idea and you may see it painted on my 6 Thanks for your time fellas, your help is much needed and appreciated

-stevo
(Seeing as how the picture isnt in the best quality, if you take a pic of an 03 r6 off the net..it'll do)

I'm loving the Team Italia WSBK Yamaha's as ridden by Spies & Sykes
Gold wheels would set it off a treat

but something about a glossy bike catches the eye

Satin black FTW
easier to keep clean than matt and bad all at the same time

I've always had a simple idea. Flat black/or whatever color you want. With the rising soon(IN WHITE) on the front bottom corner and rays coming off of it from there. Border with a dark grey. USE YOUR IMAGINATION!
