Thanks! I order a set of rim stripes in green; since they are removable, I figured I'd give a shot.
This bike keeps growing on me. Low-speed handling is surprisingly good. And it feels lighter than the Rock, although the actual weights are similar.

I picked up the bike today, and I am very impressed. It is interesting how different it feels from the Rockster, although they are similar bikes (naked).

I'm so jealous! ;) I still love the Yellow/Black KR, but this new Green is beautiful. Beginning of the year I did a test ride on a silver KR, and I loved it, but I'm still in the "love phase" with my Citrus Rockster! All that I'm missing on my Rockster is a better sounding exhaust.

Congratulations on the bike.

Paul, I highly recommend a carbon remus revolution exhaust for the Rockster - looks and sounds great- I used to regularly get compliments on the sound from other bikers while riding around.

Then again, it didn't sound sound anything like the amazing symphony created by the carbon akrapovic I currently have on my KR.

Money well spent!

This sounded good. Removed the silencer when ripping out of town, kept it in for commuting...

Bought it from Victory BMW during Oktoberfest on sale...
