    Red face Nc700x - in yellow??!!

    Just got my AMA American Motorcyclist for July. One of the articles inside is about motorcycle camping. The picture showing the camping gear in the article (author is from the Pacific NW) has a YELLOW X w/ factory luggage on it sitting in the campsite. Hot, hot, hot.

    Best I can tell from a quick search yellow is available in Japan.

    Yellow looks nice on the NC700. Plastic wrap on the seat... not so much.

    IIRC, he had his painted in the Seattle area before putting a single mile on it and I *think* there is an old thread here about him doing it but I just can't seem to find it.

    Yeah, Tom Mehren got his painted at Sik Werks in Seattle about 12 seconds after he bought it. Sik werks also did one in Pink that is in my neighborhood but has so far eluded me. But we have her friend, CBGuy, on the forum now. I am planning on doing mine in yellow Plasti-dip over the Christmas break when I can't ride her for the ice on the roads.

    This makes me want to find a decal that says "can you see me now?"
