I like it as well. (You should paint the side cases red and tie a string to the front for halloween.... nothing like riding a tampon for the holiday)
Is it on the table? If not, lay it out there.

I'm waiting for herfjr to find this thread! This is the color she has been waiting for Yamaha to provide.

I like the color(?) but it needs some contrast or something to breakup the snowfield.

Your going to cause some "rolling road blocks" with your new color, the cagers in front of you are going think you are the Police and slow down below the speed limit and start making un-planed right hand turns to get you off thier ass! :yahoo:

Same here. The white is very nice, but needs some decorations to set it off.

+3. Paint the tank molding something different - silver to match the wheels and exhaust perhaps would look great I think.

Then if you like it do the same to the grab handle/rack in the back.

I always wanted pearl white with a candy blue undercoat but I'm to lazy and cheap to take it apart and put it together without scratching it. If I did paint it ,Wheatie would probably make me tip it over again anyway :o :P
