Help me paint my V

I'm going to have my 08 repainted. I'm thinking of a two tone silver color theme since the frame and swing arm are already silver. I'm thinking all the other red pieces will be painted a darker silver color.

I'm open to all suggestions including other colors, stripes, flake however no flames!

I wanted to paint mine matte black but decided to go for pearl white and i don't regret the decision. You can add few decals afterwards. Now the top of my bike is white,the middle black and the lower part is silver.

White is an option. What was the additional cost to have your frame painted black or did you do it yourself?

I have been considering a dark metallic grey. I don't know that I'd do it, just a color that I've been thinking of most recently.

Go for gun metal grey....It will look good on the Versys. I am planning to to that once my Versys reaches 2 years old...one more year to go.....argghhhh

If you have photoshop, you can use that pic and start playing around with colour schemes to see how it looks like...woo hoo..

Please post a pic once you have done your new colour. Cheers.

That's what my painter thought, fading the silver frame into a dark mealic grey around the tank.
