I saw this bike at the track in Daytona. Some guys have a lot of time on their hands! It looks nice with the red paint. Does it belong to a member of the forum?

Am I the only one that likes the black frames. I don't like the polished on that bike at all... However the red bottom is sweet.

umm your pics needs to be attached it wont work like that.

I have a friend who bought a red one a few days back and is going to polish his. I think the black looks too good. If it were silver then I would say go for it but I dont like it compared to the black.

No, you're in good company, all the people who may want to buy it after you are done with it will like the black frame, too.

I'm surprised the goofball hasn't spooned a set of those red tires onto the thing yet.

Somebody has alot of time AND money..

While I agree these bikes look best with the 'all black' frames and just the fairings painted red..

the polished 04 would look sweet with the on the blue or silver one.. with the frame and wheels done..

take a closer look in the background of that pic.. polished swingarm protecting what..

red tires..

another thing.. look at the rear tires on the 04.. poser polish frame or not.. this bike has been ridden hard..

he might just be the goofball that comes around you in a given corner..

Possible, but highly unlikely.

I was thinking about doing mine, but the black looks too sweet. However, I'm going to polish the inner lip on the swingarm, and the rims. Then paint the front wheel red.:thumbup

I'm not a fan of the polished bikes. Well not when it has a black frame. I think it looks great on the bikes that come with a aluminum frame

Yeah, we'll see how they like it after they get tired of polishing it all the time!

I like the black. Im thinking of havin my wheels partally painted (leaving part black) to match the red though. Finding the "Shift Red" paint might be hard though..

LOVE the red lower fairing

Definitely hate the polished frame. Does not go with the engine and fairing black, makes it look bad
