It all started with a panic stop, a slight bump on the car ahead of me, and the bike going down on my ankle, denting the factory tank. Procrastination did not sit well with my father, so he surprised me with new tins all around painted to match my other "beauty", a 1999 Dinan M3.. yes, I know I have odd "toys" H-D and BMW typically do not mix, I aim to disprove that. Techno Violet is a rather rare BMW color, and now that it is on a Harley, it is a unique color for that too. Dark in low light, blue from one angle, purple from another, metal flake throughout, it really is a pleasing color in real life, no photo will do it justice.. but I will try...

One note about the photos, the tank shots show how the digital camera focused on the bridge in the reflection, and not the tank itself. This is majorly the paint work, and partly the products I used to protect it.
