Welcome to the Zoo and nice looking ride.

If you haven't already taken the Motorcycle safety course, I would recommend it. It's save my tail many times.

As I am sure others will agree to, make sure you always bring your sense of humor.....

Welcome to the forum. I would definetly remove that slow silver from the bike and paint it that really nice/fast RED job you have on your truck .

looks good. i recommend not painting your bike to match your truck. 2 completely different forms of enjoyment so do you really want them looking exactly the same? don't you want a different experience from each?

I agree with the different paint. M wife loves the paint job on my truck so she has been saying I should match it, but I think I will do something a little more crazy and dark side.
thanks everyone I have already ordered a few more goodies for it.
