Thoughts on a bike with so much red?

I was a bit skeptical about the bike to start with, but I think all the red works well, and ties it all together. Hope the Yamaha tank logo is chrome not gold though!
Bottom line is that it is whatever works for you! It is your bike.

 I like it. Be bold, be different, too many black & chrome bikes already

Personally I think you should put some white side panels on the tank to break it up a bit. It is not so much the fact that there is too much red but that there is too much of one colour. All the black bikes with no other colours don't look quite right to me either.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

I have been absent for a week and haven't done any work. I've been helping with some health issues of a family member. Thanks for the tips and ideas guys. I think that I agree with Brodie... the color needs to be broken up a little with some type of graphics. I don't know about white panels, but maybe black panels with white pin-striping.... similar to the bike featured on the Dime City Cycle ad/header at the top of the forum page. I'll try to get back to the shop soon. Warm regards to all.

Mike is the one who gave me the idea. Besides, I’m just showing off my wealth. That titanium in my leg is probably one of the most expensive things I own.
