So is that an actual picture, or Photoshop?

Just don't go near any fields with bulls in Big Grin

Or put a blue light o and tell the cop that pulls you, your the acting fire chief. Big Grin

Personaly I'd prefer a metalic red, and the vent on the sidecar I'd paint black to match the one on the side of the bike.

Heck each to his or her own that's why we are individuals, and don't follow the crowd.
3 wheels rather than 2, yeah Wink

Not TOO red, but maybe too MUCH red.
But better looking than the gray or silver one at the top of the page.

OK, it's not Photoshop Embarassed

I must say - it looks even better in real life. Excellent job, Bill!

There are nice Kawasaki logos that don't show up in the picture, but match the bike perfectly - with those, and with the matching paint, it looks like a from-the-factory accessory. You should park it beside the Kawasaki truck at Americade and see what happens!

For sure That's so funny.
I drove the red menace the other day and can confirm it has adequate performance. Laughing Smooth and ridiculously fast. What more could you ask for Big Grin
I understand Bill has a matching helmet and jacket on the way Razz
maybe he should have it painted like Valentino Rossi had his painted Laughing

thanks for that link Paul
