    And here we can see that the VX300 wheelbase is a little bit "wider" than standard guage rail :D

    Those of you who choose the Metallic Graphite Grey - do you think it looks different (better) live than in pictures?
    We all have different taste, thankfully, and I haven't seen this colour live and think the bike looks elegant but a bit staid or suppressed in pictures.
    Saw the green one in a MC show and liked it. Now dealer says he will only get the grey in first delivery ( April hopefully). The green bikes will come to Sweden in June or later if I understood him correctly.

    I like the Grey ... as others have said -- it looks better in person over the images you see on-line ...

    Plus -- depending on the angle and light -- it seems to change colors a bit (at least for my eyes)

    Thank you for sharing your view. I really look forward to seeing it in person even though I sounded doubtful.

    It's a Givi E45 MonoKey. Almost indestructible, very light and timeless. Sadly, they do not manufacture them anymore.

    Just a trunk, so far. I'm waiting for taller/bigger windshields to become available.

    I've been using the same one daily for about 22 years. Pretty much bulletproof.

    Old screen --- Re-purposed !!

    Is is a MRA VarioScreen VNB Universal Handlebar mount

    http://www.twistedthrottle.com/mra-...es-cruisers-enduro-and-dual-sport-motorcycles

    Removed the mounting rods ... drilled 4 holes, bought longer 6mm Machine Screws from Ace Hardware, made some spacers to space it out a bit so the handlebars/mirrors would clear at full lock since it is wider then the stock windscreen ...

    Works pretty good .... I'm trying different spacers top and bottom to fine tune the airflow

    Hmmm..
    I'm starting to think I might like the metallic grey when I get to see it irl.
    There was a Lamborghini Aventador parked near my little office today. It was silver grey metallic. It had some kind of very subtle bronze nuance but still basically grey metallic. Looking good.
    Still wondering who in that neigbourhood can pay $400.000 for a car.

    I bet Laminar Lip can match you up something. Email them dimensions and they can match up an existing touring lip to improve stock.

    You can only push so much wind with that 300 so don't expect a Goldwing.

    CalSci and Cee Bailey's are both fast to produce too.

    I just picked up my grey x300. The green looks great in photos, so I wasn't sure I'd like the grey. Turns out I love the grey! It looks fanastic outside and does reflect the color of the light very nicely. Tonight as the sun set, it had a great pewter bronze color.
