Congrats, Frogman. Yer temptin' me to pull the tank & fenders & take 'em in for a two-tone treatment...

Question: I'm not home and can't go look for myself - any reason you didn't pull off the pillion floorboards? Is that a big pain? I'm considering removing the pillion (my wife just isn't interested), and I'd likely want to pull the floorboards too if I did...

I looked it up so I didnt sound like an ass. Monochromatic is actually "using one color" however in images and art monochromatic can also mean just black and white. I though it was strictly one color hence my confusion. I had never heard of monochromatic being anything other then one color after all mono means one.
