What do ya'll think?
« on: May 13, 2011, 03:53:09 pm »
I finally gathered enough parts and money together to get my 2001 sonic blue back together and painted. I laid her down back in the fall avoiding an idiot< and road her with mismatched parts til the season was up. Now she is all painted, and I would like some feedback. I like the color, but I am not sure if it's me. Give me your honest opinions. Thanks

I don't know, I'm always up for something different.  I think it looks good.

I don't know if you or not. But I know it is not me. Nice bright color for being seen but greens are not my taste.

The black lowers make it look a bit more sophisticated than if it was all green. Kawasaki green is pretty full on by itself.

First, nice paint job! Your visibility has improved from the stock color, for sure! Possible endorsements from Mama Kaw or ROK in the future?  8)

I have always liked the Kawi green so I give it a big two thumbs up!

Love it!!! 8) Good visibility as well. Who says your bike has to look like grandpa's. If I had to paint mine I'd seriously consider the Eddie Lawson lookalike treatment.

I too love it!  Agree that the black tones it down.

Actually my parts bike was a '99 purple. I rode my bike for a few months with that and a sonic blue combo...

Yup.  Like it very much!  In the end however, you gotta be true to yourself.  If you don't like it, who gives a ^&@# what anyone else thinks?  Paint it again to a color more to your taste.
