    ...hello orange & grey.

    Just got my bike back from CT Motorcycle Service in Maidstone, Kent, where Chris has replaced the original granite grey colour scheme with a shiny new orange and grey paint job for the bike and luggage. I'm delighted with the results and here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

    The new colour scheme matches the backlighting on my instruments too:

    ...and the logo reproduced in paint, rather than as a sticker:
    orange - 8.jpg

    The Daytona orange is a nod to BMWs of old. I'm very pleased with the result.

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Now I like the oranges bronze but I don't think the grey is a good companion to the orange, I could think of a few better colours but I still like it.:)

    Thanks everyone. I'm hoping it will also be a bit more durable than Mr BMW's granite grey paint, which would scratch and scuff even if you just looked too hard at it. There is a nice shiny clear-coat layer over the new paint which makes it shine and sparkle.

    This is the best repaint design I have seen on the RS so far. Love the stripes and luggage too ... and the rims! Gorgeous all over!

    Only problem for me is the orange.

    Hahaha ... :D I think that fuscia would offset the painted grey quite nicely, don't you think?

    Wow. Stunning! My old F800GT was BMW's Valencia Orange, and though that was a great color too. Plus the color matched luggage..... damn.

    Impressive. Love the orange, great choice!
    Maybe I would have kept the original rim colour, is all.
    Question, and sorry to change the subject: happy with the Remus?

    Lovely quality paint job - and of course it will now be faster too:) - so a performance and cosmetic upgrade in one :D:D
