    Hey, just an editorial note, none of this takes away from how awesome this bike is to ride. I'm looking forward to having her painted for spring.

    Any idea what the entire painted surfaces repaint to the RS model's blue and white scheme will cost? Also, how well will new paint hold up? I'm obviously ignorant of these things but I really like the RS scheme as well. Please post a photo when you get there :o)

    I'm still getting quotes on the paint. I've had paint work done in the past with great results. I've had panels painted etc after scrapes and the paint was fine and lasted as well as new. I may get the guy who painted my sidecar to do it. Will post results when done.
