    Barbelson....he added some pics to his media page for me to drool over. His is so well done, it makes me want to go red. I really dig the black as well tho. It may honestly come down to the flip of a coin for me! :)

    The other member is probably 'mike Bike' from Bavaria. He had his bike sprayed red. It looked really good, and once I had seen it, I knew it was the way to go for me.

    You can find pictures of mike bike's RS under Members.
    Go to Members page, scroll to bottom and you will see 'Find Members'. Insert 'mike Bike' and it will take you to his page where you will see his bike.

    If you like the Racing Red color, BMW sells prepainted pannier and top box lids in this color.

    So just talked to a couple shops about vinyl wrap...looking at $1500-3000 and the fact that some of the pieces might not be able to be done kinda rules that right out. Found that if I pull the plastic off myself, there are a couple shops in town that said they could do it for anywhere from $500-800. I like that route. Still haven't decided on color. I really like the red but the more I stare at it, I like it at certain angles but some angles look unbalanced whereas the black just looks awesome in every regard.

    Black will look good with the black frame on your bike.
    If you want to see Racing Red in person the S1000XR and R1200R are available in that color.
    You may be able to see one at a shop.

    I am going to wait till I can see a 2018 all black in person. Of course I am in the states so might not for a while. I was really wanting to trade plastics with someone (which is why I started this thread) but it looks like no interest.

    BTW, I have seen others trade plastic to change bike colors and it's the cheapest way to go.
