Renthal UL color advice

So I'm gonna pick up some ultra lows, but can't decide between the gray titanium color or the black. My bike is the flat black paint, and if the handlebars are a glossy black I'm scared it will look weird. The titanium seems to be the same color as the wing decals on the tank......what do you guys think?

I have the black ones, and they are not glossy at all. It's a matte finish.

I think the black bar lets the switches and mirror mounts blend in really nice.
I say black for you. I would go gold to match my calipers.

Thanks for the input, and the picture. Think I'm gonna go with the black ones, my levers are black as well which I didn't think about until now. I think I'm gonna go with the renthal bar ends too, I'm pretty sure my ebay bar end mirrors will clamp to them. I gotta pick up some new grips as well.

Ended up getting the black UL from bikebandit for $49 with some new grips all for 60 bucks shipped. Can't wait to get them on.

They are on closeout right now, so if anyone is looking to get them now might be the time.
