Hi Pete, my K12rs is black. I will probably repaint it in a few years once it looks bad, as all black paint jobs tend to. I am not Mr. wax and polish every weekend. I painted my old K11rs the blue and white zebra colors because I really like that pattern. The bike is a whole new ride after adding the 30 mm barbacks, best money spent sofar. I've been thinking about the GT screen or the aeroflow, either is not cheap. I don't mind spending the money if it's worth it but for a piece of clear plastic ... it bugs me.
The ferry crossing is gaining a lot of ground around here. I appreciate the idea it will probably end up being a good route start.
I'm not sure what color you could paint the handguards on the zebra so they don't stand out too much. The blue might be good though.
