Why not lime green with lightning blue stripes diagonal up the tank with gold petrol cap and blue, black and green stripes down the rear plastics?

They all look pretty much the same to me. Like a naff spot the difference competition. If you have a bike that looks like that in real life then you need to consider it more three dimensionally and stop hogging all the red. Try to make colour and line match stance and movement through the bike as opposed to just going around the edge of the panel/feature. Are you painting it yourself?

Thanks for checking this out, I have that bike in real life lol. I might just add an airbrush instead.

I got a professional to paint my bike, i just want a paint job that looks good to see and I don't want to get it repainted twice which would cost money..
