    It can't be all Bronze It would be too much. Boxter's idea sounds good if that can be done.
    I am surprised that those with blue bikes haven't suggested you go Blue as it would make your panniers go so much Faster.LOL:)

    Clearly, they do. Hence they never state that black/grey bikes look better and go faster ;)

    Cheers

    It's a bad thing when your panniers pass your bike :)

    It can be done, BMW did the red into black years ago, I had one of these and it looked awesome, just was far too heavy.

    They did it again recently and called it R1200RT Iconic.
    It was only available in limited numbers in the UK.

    That Black on the grey would make the bike tooooo fast, but would look great. Could make some others Blue in the Face.:):):)

    All you guys with this question did the mistake when ordering :)
    It is only the Grey/Black that is made to be nice with panniers and top box.

    9DB12ABD-9C9B-437B-B252-E4BC3036BB7D.jpeg No, but it would look fantastic on a carved maple, tiger stripped, 10 top. Something like this but with black hardware.
