    Of course it will be faster, that's obvious, drivers in front as they see the colour in their mirrors they will pull over to vomit, so clear road ahead faster journey,

    Only joking, colour is growing on me :) :)

    Indeed, that’s a stunning looking bike. I’d be afraid to ride it.

    I’ve met the artist’s handiwork before. Anyone for painted BM roundels?

    Man that is sweet. I wish I could find someone to duplicate that over here. I wouldn't change a thing!

    Nice job!
    I see the rims are not fully painted. Any reason for it?

    The wheels are fully painted from new grey in the centre fading to orange at the rims, and then clear coated.

    Had to have a second look now that you mentioned it. Very cool idea!

    Wow, I like it. Cool combo, too. Catches the eye. Nice design regarding how, which & where, the colors lay out. Really dig the tank design. Been thinking of doing mine but couldn't quite resolve where to stop one color and start the other. You nailed it. Love the stripe, too. Only, and I mean only comment, is double pin-stripe like the old hand striped BMrs.

    A really good painter with a very keen eye on balancing the colors into the contours of the bikes design. Certainly show quality, but hell, get out and ride to show that bad boy off! Stick.

    Looks really great in Orange, a very nice job both in the overall look and also into the details. Love it!

    I have seen a LOT of different painted solutions to the panniers in various colors but these solution is by far and away the most tasteful and
    executed. Like someone suggested, Orange is one of those subjective colors you even love or hate. I could never hate any color that is so well
    executed and design so slick to look more than professional .... I wouldn't be surprised if BMW takes notice and offers something like that in our future. Once I bought a plain little Toyota MR2 in blue metallic and it was really in need of something so I took it to the body shop and had it pained with a light underbody and added some BBS style wheels and the traditional Toyota TRD racing stripe to separate the colors. The very next year after my car got some notoriety in SCCA racing circles Toyota came out with the exact same treatment on a new model. LOL I was flattered I suppose.
    below is a rendering I did for the body shop to know what I wanted done.
