35. HOW CAN I FIND PAINT THAT MATCHES MY BIKE/YEAR?

Try and get a BMW paint .. I went to 'motorcycles', then 'street' and BMW doesn't come up as an option.

Plus, it'll probably be a base coat clear coat with a primer, no?

I'd like a sliver in a Home Despot type of paint with primer built in.

I tried S100 and no luck. From reading on UKGS's Forum the stains won't come out with anything you can do besides top coat it.
