Yamaha motorcycles virtual bike show

http://www.starmotorcycles.com/star/...pg=1&y=c&v=bom

you guys ever check out the virtual show? this month's winner has me a bit perplexed. it's a great looking bike, but i'm confused by the details the owner listed for the values of customization that was spent.

$30K for accessories? it's obvious some money was spent on this, but not seeing $30K worth.

$10K for paint? it's BLACK. and there's not that much of it. who's charging $10K to paint this black?

i smell something here to the tune of cattle excrement.

It must be a decimal point error or maybe the price includes paying off the judges.

OR

Maybe it was red or gray before and he was very desperate to change the color.

Must be that blue hue he wanted to add to the black. It's really hard to do and brings nothing else to the bike but a slow coat of paint.

Live RED and prosper
