Thanks, Darby. If the old lady hadn't knocked my '14 out from under me, I'd have been happy with Magnesium Beige for another 100,000 miles. I still think that's one of the best colors BMW's come out with.

I just read on another post that if you don't look over your shoulder when walking away from your bike...

I have a feeling you do.

Much better than my (and BMWs) vermilion red. But I look over my shoulder when walking away anyway.

You know, I used to think that but, come on, everyone knows red is the fastest. Now, I can finally say it out loud, though. Tell him, @KCMO Steve .

Well done. Great shade of red and especially like the mirrors, under screen and center tank panels. Show us an overhead pic of the center tank.

It looks great. When I bought my GTL I was disappointed that red wasn't available and I had to go with a boring shade of grey.. My LT was one of the unique greens and always got attention... I've thought of a paint job and looking at yours might just give me to push....

I'm working, today, but will post up a couple of more pics to this thread when I get a chance. Thanks for the kudos.
