    Working on a thing...CityX...cosmetics.

    So this white airbox cover popped up for sale near me. I never really think about white on a bike, but when I saw this my perspective shifted.
    I went and picked it up and now my brain is overloading with ideas.

    So now... I'm thinking about the windscreen next. I spot this on eBay. It's like a blank canvas.

    Then I run across this...

    I like it, but I'm not sure. I've always been a Nicky Hayden fan. Please excuse my graphics prowess, just playing with some ideas.

    Here's the bike currently...waiting on the white windscreen to get here. Decisions, decisions...

    Be careful what you say and how you say it after all, you do live in California. Though I like the white screen with the American flag, again it will be misconstrued especially if you take a wrong turn and go down the wrong block in the wrong neighborhood, someplace on the bike you might want to write BLM just to show balance.

    Really I like the white with the flag !

    Silver, you need some white pin striping on the back of both of those bikes, it would just balance it out so nice.

    Haha! Ya man that looks really good. I've always liked the white bikes, I figure if I look like a Stormtrooper I won't kit anythng

    Make the screen out of thin sheet metal and use magnets to change your graphics at will!

    When I purchased my all black 2009 XB12Scg it came with a complete set of white body work as well. I have wanted to swap it out just to see how it looks. It also came with a third white airbox cover that is pretty neat, just a wall hanger...
