Need opinions, Red or Silver Crash Bars

Okay, you may have seen my "painted" thread on the Modification-Cosmetic section, http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ad.php?t=17541, my SW-Motech Crash Bars are on backorder and won't be in until the first of December. So In have a few weeks to decide.......

should I paint my crash bars Red like WT100 or Silver like lanesplitter? I was originally thinking silver however now I'm thinking red. I'm flip flopping more than a politician so I'm going to leave it up to the forum to decide.

Let me know what you think. Red or Silver.

Red will make a much bigger statement.

Fear is just excitement in need of an attitude adjustment.

Silver.

You've got plenty of red (and it looks great) and the crash bars will wrap around silver parts, so you'd get a red/silver/red/sliver thing going on that would steal your attention.

Silver. The crash bars will mesh with the silver bodywork

Hoping to become a rider soon

Red.
No doubt about it.

I really like the way your bike looks, especially the red trellis bits.

Prefer Black, but since it's either red or silver, I'll take RED since the rear footpeg bars are red. Kind of match, IMO.

Sharp looking bike. I don't think I would even add crash bars to the bike. It looks great the way it is. It's not like you are going to take that bike out on gravel anyway looking like that.

Sure not red.
You have a kind of red stripe and under it there is the black engine surrounded by silver frame and accessories.
So crash bars could be black like engine (I prefer) or silver like frame.
Your Versys look will be more equilibrated.

Nobody thinks that something is so easy like who is totally unable to do it.

If you put a EMS light bar on that thing you can park it at the local firehouse and get a tax break! So by all means go red;-)

Skip the crash bar and paint part of the wheel spokes red. That would look awesome.

Well you know I vote for red!

I like the fact that it's unexpected. I don't get comments on the red body panels but i often get comment on the red bars.

100 countries or bust...80 so far.
Rides: Ecuador, Haiti, Laos, Sri Lanka, Tibet & Vietnam
