Haha I like the way the bike looks blacked out. The pipes are chrome, and I think they look much better than the stock 2-1 pipe. I already ordered the factory windshield, engine guards, and sissy bar (for the girlfriend). Just waiting on them to show up. Also ordered a set of factory bags w/ brackets that need to be painted. I'll post pics when it's all on. I'll generally leave the windshield and sissy bar off. I like the look better without that stuff, but I go on some pretty long rides and it sure helps out.
