Dropped round to see Dave yesterday and help him disconnect the tank which was giving him shit.

He'd gone into Canberra and driven around seeing which colours stood out most on the road. Being another cancer survivor I suppose he's a bit more aware of how precious life is! Anyway, he noticed a lot of orange, so orange it is!

Actually I reckon it looks pretty good!

Wow!

I like it.

That may, however, be faint praise.  Rolling Eyes

It does look OK. I have been thinking of painting my Sport the light blue colour as used on the racing Volvos. Thoughts?

Paint it any damn colour you like Tony! Its your bike!

I've been thinking of going a sort of Sky blue on the Mana. I'm not a great fan of red so i have no idea why I bought a red one? Dumber than dogshit I guess! Very Happy

Orange. Drool. I was planning on Orange for mine, but since I seem to keep flinging it down the road, I've decided making it pretty will just end in tears again. Ergo, pointless.

What's fuctup this time? Rocker cover and CARC? Mine has a few battle scars, its bound to happen. When I swapped the engines in mine I couldn't be arsed changing the oil cooler cover so mine has a bit of a scrape. If Your CARC is too shitty we can swap it for one of the less shitty ones I have or borrow one and get yours tarted up and sprayed. Americar up the road from me have un-rashed a few gribble CARC bevel boxes for me. They never look new-new again but at least they don't look like they've been gnawed by rats!

Nice job, Dave! As if the GRiSO didn't already turn enough heads!
I know we already did a couple of laps with this on another thread, but since I am do like the orange GRiSO idea I have to chime in again!
Please beetle, I know you've got your own orange in your mind's eye, but consider "copper orange"
when you do pull the trigger on the paint job. I think with a brown leather seat, it would be cool. Thumbs Up

Rocker cover and oil cooler cover. CARC copped it too, but I haven't washed the dirt off to see. I think it's mostly unscathed. It's one from the pile of less fucked-up units you had. My original rashed one is in your pile of scratched ones, after it sprung a leak.

Copper looks good, but I'm more of a burnt orange guy. Begorrah, no brown leather will sit 'twixt my arse and GRiSO.

Mark,
Just paint it dirt colour it will save time cleaning it up and everything will match.
I do like that orange colour though.
