Color swap

For those of you wondering what your '09 V would look like with the lower cowlings swapped between the two colors, here ya go.

Thanks to Arlen in Iowa posting a swap for the two different colors, we did it. He will be gettin' my black lowers.





pantsdavies posted his being painted the same color as the bike. Very very nice, but I'll stick with this combo.

did you paint the side cases or did you order them that color?

Your bike looks really nice. I wonder if it would look good with blacked out wheels?

The cases have the option of three different color inserts, blue, green and black. The cases were ordered when I bought the bike.

Hi if6was9,

What's the brand / model of your handguards ? Is it whole plastic, or has it a metal part ?

Thanks for your feedback

California always does things different from the rest of the country, or so it seems.

Those are the universal single mount Barkbuster "Storm". Got'em through Twisted Throttle @ $99. They do interfere with the Givi windshield.
