    Paint Job Done. Not sure if I like it

    The previous owner had painted this bike with green Krylon and I wasn't crazy about it, mostly because my other bike is green. So I stripped it all off and painted it with genuine military tan paint. I'm not so sure now. Which one looks better?

    This is my other bike, and why I didn't want a second green bike

    You know, I kinda like it. Ride it for a couple of months then decide if you want to change it. That's the great thing about paint, you can change it!

    I like the tan.
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    I think the tan looks good. When I take the plunge I plan to do similarly.

    They both looked great. Maybe a snow camo pattern for the future.

    The tan seems a little light for my tastes. Would make good base for a water transfer cammo pattern.desrt_camo_bike.jpgMotorcycle 224.png
