Sounds like we all need to see what colors we want and trade them around. I have charcoal and would have loved to found a silver, red, blue, green, mauve, basically anything but black or charcoal. My Vstrom was Charcoal and it didn't take long for me to repaint it myself. LEss pieces though. IT took basicall a weekend day to dismantle, wetsand, prime, and paint the Vstrom, and get it back together. The LT would take a bit longer, due to the complexity of disassembly. The wetsand, prime and paint wouldn't take all that long. I used Duplicolor sprays for the Vstrom and wouldn't have a bit of problem using that on the LT. The clear shines up nicely and if done right, can look as good as a pro job. If you;re a tightwad like me, spendinbg a couple hundred bucks in materials and doing it yourself is pretty rewarding.
I just haven't figured out what color the LT should be. And I'm kinda trashy when it comes to graphics. Be hard for me to resist flames or something like that and the LT isn't really a flammable bike.
If P were closer, I'd offer to trade bodies. LT bodies, that is.....
