i think it looks pretty cool. I find it interesting that a lot of people have different color tank than the plastics. I think the V looks nice in lighter colors.

What color is that? I'd call it Desert Storm or Desert Sand, but colors aren't very accurate on these laptop screens.

Looks good. Now you need to do something with the rear shock. Black or maybe bright red..

Good job! Most important is that you like the colors!

Yup yup, looks good. I'm really liking the newer bikes with more black metal parts, and that light colour sets it off.

Thanks, its still the original blue that I love underneath. I plasti-dipped it first so I can peel it off. I really want to find a set of plastics so I can keep my blue ones and spray another set a different color for when I get bored. Thanks for the input.

Very similar to mine. After I crashed and broke all the plastics I painted it Desert Tan (Walmart spray can) and I think it turned out pretty good. A nod towards my time in Iraq.

I did my 2009 similar, but the color is a super light grey. I love it.

I really like the older cream color Alfa Romeo convertibles. Put stickers on it and ride. You hit a good color the first time, although the blue is one of my favorite Versys colors.

Looks real nice, at first I thought it was a white one with just the stickers removed. Gotta love that Plasti-Dip!

Since I need to repair and paint the top right plastic from a drop, I have been thinking about turning my green beastie into a white rocket. That looks very nice Tenover. Think there will be any issues painting the Givi V35's.

looks sick! I'm thinking about changing mine this year. I rode a black dipped versys last year, but love how this pops.
