    Cool Paintjob and macthing colors

    Hi guys,

    As some of you know im in a competition about some rizoma gear. But when the choice of color come up im not sure. So i began to play with colors on the bike. Meanwhile i visited an open house and ended up buying a new suit.

    So now i wanted to match colors - nice or no-go on a streetbike - its a matter of personal opinion - so here is some photoshopped layouts.

    2nd pic looks best with the blue rear fairing and the white front mud guard, as the colours look more balanced within the bike. The 3rd pic looks as if there is too much blue up front. In my opinion anyhow.
    If the 2nd pic was up for sale when I brought mine I would have picked that colour..

    The pic without the photoshop the one with a cheesy smile under the helmet (lol) the leathers have a subtle blue so don't look to bad. However when you start going with a colour scheme if you change your bike its not normally the same as your leathers.

    My favorit is 4th picture. As if you made a BURGER of layers -

    WHITE
    BLUE
    WHITE

    Across the bike. Thats the intention anyway. But as you say - blue leather colors will be very difficult to match on blue plastic. 2nd Picture that you like requires a pro paint job on the plastic - of the rear and the short strip on the tank and the sidepanels.

    You could do all of that with vinyl wrap. Would probably be cheaper than painting, and if you didn't like it, you just peel it off and try again.

    I'd also assume it would be even easier with plastidip (maybe not the stripes though).

    Style is all personal, and up to the person itself to choose - that is my favorit one as well - the layer/stribe theme of the whole.

    That is an option - so just getting some sort of sticker OR paintjob just on the tank

    I liked the first picture, but would add the blue on the front to it, like on the other pictures.
