Strange how it looks absolutely fine with mixed-up bodywork on. Can't imagine any other bike you could do that with without it looking crap. Eh?

PS.....

I'm not saying it does n't look good in its Lucky strike get up, that's one of my favourite paint schemes but there is something really nice about the mix & match of its track day clothes. Someone back me up......please Very Happy

I hadn't realised the track-day set up was a mis-match until I read this, obvious now though.

As the fairing and tail-piece match it sort of throws you. I generally like RGVs in blue and white, and I think some of the best colour scheme's didn't come to the UK. blue white and black being one of them on the earlier models.
