Thanks MajorRager(my brother)

Just wanted to get on here and thank my brother Mark for helping me paint my bike. I think it turned out pretty damn well. P.S.-please nobody steal the paint scheme because between being sent a 599 gas tank that was almost finished painting but lacking clear coat before we realized it was the wrong tank and the one of the extra wheels I bought(that was finished being painted) turned out to be bent-I would like the bike to remain one of a kind.
Thanks Mark

Sorry, couldn't figure out how to upload a picture through the forum. Plus if anybody wants to follow along, I will be updating this site as I go cross country on the same bike

Your bike looks good! The scheme isn't my cup o tea, so I wont be stealing it but it does look good.

If/when you find yourself in Colorado, give me a buzz...Seriously, I always like to meet folks from here, maybe I can ride along for a bit too!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Certainly is unique. I would've been tempted to have left the wheels black, or just with an orange strip on the rims, but hey, it's not my bike and you and your brother have certainly done a great job with it.

Did the helmet come after the bike or was the bike painted to match?

That looks really good. I just got my wheels done, and painting is too expensive. You're safe here. Good luck on your trip

Thanks everybody. Shadow, I will try and give you a day or two heads up before I get to Colorado. Probably won't be for a couple of weeks, as I still haven't concreted my route schedule.

Agitator, once again my brother painted that as well when we were doing the wheels. The orange works great at night as a reflector.

RMB, I gonna get pics of the bike loaded up most likely tomorrow. The top case was the Givi e53 and the side cases are the E41. I am really happy with these. Everything fits in them so no rear seat bag necessary. Tested and verified they are waterproof. Only problem I had was the brackets came powder coated gray. I painted them the same color as the exhaust covers because to be honest I love the look of the 919 and wanted the cases to be as least noticeable as possible.
