    I did think about that - to my eye the fairing looks great in side view but a bit odd from the front. I loved the matt black finish because there are fewer colour contrasts but it will be a bugger to keep clean.

    Agreed I'd also have the silver-ice one, but I'd be spending my entire life cleaning - the polished engine cases and wheels are going to be a nightmare if they get wet

    That really is a nice looking bike!!!!

    So if you had all 3 colour options you would spend your entire life cleaning? Which would give you no time to post on here

    I can feel a collection coming on!!!

    Seriously though enjoy the new bike

    I've not ridden one.Maybe next year I'll get one.Would get same colour as you but probably get bikini fairing too,though I've heard a few stories about switchgear being too tight ex factory and the fairing makes it worse and causes eleccy gremlins.
