And of course the camera on the iPad doesn't do it justice.

Will be adding some carbon soon to enhance the overall look...

Need some better quality pictures man. Put the Motorola Quantico away and dig out a digital camera. Hard to get a good idea of how it looks

cwpSP1, Your washing machine is white pearl 3-stage? I bet it turns some heads when you cruise it around town?

Handyman- good work! i like that color so well myself, I painted my jetski the same color.
Agree with Hig; get a good camera and put up some real pictures! Are you going to add any graphics? I think it would look good with one or two, like a small wing on the tank, or HONDA across the bottom of the side fairing, or RC51 in the original spot of the front fairing...

Lol, agreed before I post....the force is strong in this one!

So I in turn agree with the others, that looks sharp and classy. Tapeworks can make you some graphics in any desirable color to make them pop or stay subtle. That would really set the bike off. Doesn't need to be big- think Ducati

Pair of red stripes down the entire middle would cool...

I've always liked white on sportbikes too. Post up some quality pics once she's all finished.

Yeah I was thinking the classic Honda Wing In "winning red" would look awesome

Thanks everyone... Most definitely going to get better pics with my Nikon DSLR... These were taken with the camera off my iPad..there will be some graphics if some sort put on but nit quite sure what they will be yet. A buddy of mine has access to vinyl and plotter to cut anything out in just about any color I want. He also has a roll of 3d carbon vinyl I'm thinking would look good

Erm, no mate. It's a washing machine, it doesn't have wheels or a gas powered engine. How could I cruise around town on a washing machine??? lol. Back in England, we have something called 'white goods', which is basically your washer, drier, fridge etc etc. Household appliances are generally white. So if someone has a white car/bike, we would wind them up by saying it looks like a washing machine. Not trying to be cruel or hurt someone's feelings, it's just a bit of fun. Would I own a white car? HELL NO!!!! I'm not driving around in a tumble drier with wheels. haha. Word.
