What Color?

I am going to be painting the bike here in a few weeks and torn on color. It will be either Yellow or Pearl White. What do you prefer?

My vote would be the yellow. A white bike looks too generic to me.

Maybe it's from all the time I had city/state jobs and white was all they would buy.

How about metalic gold? One of our users here has that color and it looks great.

Are you painting with rattle can or kompressor?

Thumbs up Go Yellow!

I would go with yellow.....Stevie D.'s bike is yellow and it looks BAD ASS!! of course his other mods help it look so good, too.
I don't think I would go white unless it is a police bike.

Personally, I am a major an of Black bikes! Yellow would be cool, but I would add ghost flames as well; very subtle in a slightly different shade of yellow, so you have to be close to see them.

How about Pearl Yellow. I have some freinds that have a pair of HD's. His is a Road King and his wife has a Softail Fat Bob, both painted in factory HD Yellow Pearl. Very cool color.

Gotta vote on the yellow. Looks real tough with the black and chrome.

David,
I'll give you a glimpse into the future. Here's what you're bike would look like Pearl White... I'm really glad I went with the white, but I'm 54, and my tastes have changed over the years. I'd look rather silly on a hot yellow bike :-)
