Pink? lettering

I picked up this fine example of an Africa Twin a couple of weeks ago. The only objection was the pink lettering. Some of you suggested to keep the bike the way it came from the factory. I find it difficult to live with the color. So, I purchased some aftermarket lettering in anthracyte (dark metallic grey) and started to remove the hot pink on the side panels and a small splash on the front. I'm waiting for the grey lettering to show up before I take off the bigger pink ones. I like the bike's color scheme without the pink. I'm keeping it that way and adding the grey.

As an aside, when I went to get the VIN verified (Colorado step to getting anything registered) the guy doing the verifying is also a rider. He said he thought he knew every model Honda had made but this was a new one on him. I kept my mouth shut.
