I may be crazy

I’ve got the new Native Customs fat tire kit, speaker lid, lower fairings and bags off and heading to the painter tomorrow. New parts, of course, need to be painted to match the rest of the bike, and the saddlebags need to be touched up due to a couple of rock chips.

I LOVE my paint job, but I was doodling a bit this evening on another potential design. Ever since I decided on the fat tire kit I’ve been wresting with the notion of going back to black. Here are the two designs I roughed in this evening:





To add perspective, here is the original mock-up for my current paint job:



Taking and notion of wasting $ off the table, am I completely insane? I get a ton of compliments on my paint scheme, but with the 2019 CVOs all coming out with similar paint color fades maybe I need to do something a little different again?

Welcome your thoughts and opinions.

Damn bro, I like your style. Both look killer but personally I like the gloss black design. Nonetheless, you can’t go wrong with ether or staying with what you’ve got.

I'm a Vivid Black fan, but I sure like what you have now!

Love all the paint sets. Yours is killer already. But if money isn't an issue and you want to change it. Change it. More power to ya. My only critique is the angle of the number 1s. I'd say have them hand painted on so they match the bag angle.

Both are great, but the black one stands out the most to me. I agree with RFG 7680 on the angle of the number 1s.

We all have opinions, but you’re the one who has to be happy and completely satisfied with what you choose. All look good, go with the one that makes you happy.

The thing about your decision on the tank emblem for the black setup. Do the eagle but leave off the SEP wording. You have an S&S engine in there. Not an SE engine.

You ask, "Am I completely insane?" Short answer, Yes, but we all are on this forum. I vote for the first pic.
