Price is a bit high IMO

Nice RS though.

Mystic Red is faster than Marrakesh Red.

Bollocks!

Mystic red fades in the sun.  And an Arab will out run a white man any day.   affraid 

Marrakesh is in Morocco for those interested.

My bike is marakesh red, but I digress.

Blue is actually faster than red.

A red bike and a blue bike left in the sun.

The blue bike gets hotter faster. (Ask Dr Karl )

Blue = faster than red.

Unless you are talking Holden (red)  v Ford (blue), then red wins every time.

Resume your places.
Show is over folks

Hey Rossko, you can't have double standards, you know that Dr Karl is right on this one.

There is an advantage with the red bike.....With the aussie sun to help you, you will slowly have an orange bike....without the cost of a paint job.

Mine is almost Daytona Orange(the half-sucked Jaffa R90S colour scheme), in parts almost pink.

I repainted mine Mystic Red and because the idiot that mixed the paint put a double dose of pearl it turned out Mystic Pink, The sort of pink that toenail paint comes in.
I got my money back and have yet to get even.

That metallic mallow pinkish pearly mauve is quite fetching....yes, that's right, I said fetching, not retching.

Nice RS though.

Mystic Red is faster than Marrakesh Red.

Price a bit high? He relisted it and bumped the price $500...

My first K was an ex-police 100RT that had already been painted very badly in a dark blue.

Where I was working at the time one of my colleagues (vehicle painting teacher) offered to paint it for me ($0).  I specified a metallic red.  He used a Mercedes metallic rose(pink), showed me one panel completed.  At the price I couldn't complain so chose to live with it.
