New look for my k12s

I've always loved the look of my k12 but I kinda felt like the white upper fairing seemed like an afterthought. I decide to order an upper fairing from ebay and had it painted indigo because I wanted to leave the original white one intact in case I didn't like the new look. The paint isn't a 100% match but it's very close. Here is the result. What do you think?

I love the blue and agree that the white doesn't look right. Almost like a police motorcycle look. This is a great look.

I always was drawn to the Indigo/white K12S but something just didn't grab me enough to pull the trigger on one. Now that I've seen yours----I can say, the Indigo upper is the diffence maker! Outstanding.

I went a slightly different direction. After a long gray winter here in Oregon, I'd had enough with all-gray K. So I painted the body a deep candy red with piano black trim. Not gonna fade into the background any more!

Who's saddle do you have on your K1200S, it looks really nice.


The red looks great.
