well, i agree with "Yak" ... its a nice set of graphics, but your bike is far from clean ...
i have a 426 (no, i´m not a "rich jerk" :thumbsup: ) to, and it takes me three days with a tooth brush to get it CLEAN!

Im sorry if my comments offended you. That wasn't my intention. It was said more in fun than anything else. I know cleaning sucks when finding free time is tight. A clean bike is something I have always prided myself on, so I guess I'm just picky, but definately not rich. The only reason I ride a new bike is because it easier for me to make small payments and take a royal buttf***ing in the end, then save a few grand cash. Financially Stupid yes, but as you see, far from rich. Can't say I dont love the 06 though. :thumbsup:

here is my 426 when it was "blingin'" ....a labor of love, if you will...
