Well, I've just had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine. He feels the sidecar ( gun metal gray ) roll cage ( flat black ) would look far more interesting if the bike matched it, rather than making the it match the bike. The intention was to always paint the car to suit one of the two Dakars, the only question was wich one.
Mine the 2006 ( Above ) ~ Its got some "love" on one side from a go down last year or hers ( the 2003 ) that is in immaculate condition.
I've always been a fan of the flat gun metal grey with clear coat on it look, it would be an interesting look, very Mad Max'ish.
