Re: Color choice...Black or Black?
I'd go for the black. Did, as a matter of fact. Couldn't be pleaseder or happier. 02LT was black, so is the 07. Before a trip it gets a nice coat of wax, including the non-painted black parts like the wings. Also polish the windshield. On the road, I use Novus #1 on the shield, being sure to flush off any sand/grit first. On one trip, we got behind a semi in construction in rain - when we stopped, used the motel's hose and gave it (and us) a bath. Thanks to the wax and polish, dirt close to falls off.
Used to be fanatic about cleaning it, but after so many people would stop and say "wow, that's a great looking bike" I decided who was I to argue with them? A big green grasshopper is like a badge!
