    Black.............

    with white pinstripes is the fastest color.

    It's almost empirically proven.

    Capri Blue ...

    is NOT the fastest colour. And I got 2 performance awards last year to prove it. In other words, I got caught so the colour obviously isn't fast enough

    I am not sure if that works. About 20 minutes after I got my R50, I got a speeding ticket. It's 23 hp fer cryin' out loud. If you are good, you can get a ticket on anything.
    On second thought, if you are bad, you can get a ticket on anything.

    Except. wrinkle black. That slows the whole bike down due to aerodynamics of the wrinkles............or something.

    This may also be true in Canada. I am not sure about below the equator.

    Hiya Wez.
    Black is black,
    I want my /7 back

    I don't know how fast black is in music.
    Mick Jagger agrees though. He wants everything painted black.
    Except maybe Jerry Hall.

    I think it's the white pinstripe that really gives it the edge. it's probably a ying/yang thing...

    I have always thought there are three bikes that are meant to be black. They are BMW, Harley and Moto Guzzi. It took me years to find a good black and original airhead.

    Especially with the right three-color stripes ...



    Brings up another thought. Are there any bikes that are not BMWs that look good in white?
