I like it but something about it still looks wrong. But still not as bad as the picture of a TL painted up like Nicky

The first generation VFR800 struck me as very ugly even when it was a brand new model in the showroom.... It's still ugly now - RC51 paintjob or not.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

I think it would look better with the pillion cover off, just makes the tail too chunky for the rest of the bike IMO

Really like that look. The red makes it look tall, but it looks good nonetheless.
