didnt sleep all night, someone said that in a post. I wasnt offended but eluded to the fact that David Hasselhoff and Knight Rider was a look I might be leaning to. I went back to the pic of my old gt and I thought it did look like a david hasselhoff k.i.t.t. vehicle. again, not offended, but intrigued. Remember I am not offended nor am i trying to reply in a bad way, just curious and interested on how my design style hits people. So far my X9 is either a Loveit or Hateit situation. And I do value this forums opinions. so thanks in advance. dr
p.s. I never watched knight rider!

While it's not particularily my cuppa tea, I really appreciate the amount of work you put into it. I'm that way with any customized vehicle, be it a K.I.T.T scooter or an orange velvet lined '66 Chebby with full hydraulics or a fat-tired Mini. Don't be offended or hurt by what others say/think about your ride.

On the Mini board, people are always asking, "Should I do ____ to my Mini?" Providing it's safe, the typical answer is, "It's your Mini, do what you want."

You may or may not care for what I plan to do to my GTS when I get it, but hey, I'm doing it for my stisfaction, not the approval of others.

*edit* Ramrezz, it's growing on me. That's pretty cool. 8)

I'm guilty of the Hoff remark
Hi
I'm the guilty party who dropped the K.I.T.T/Hasselhoff remark.
It was just a generalisation about producing an all over black look verses Vespas detailing in chrome - not intended as a comment on your actual bike.
Hasselhoff has had quite a resurgence down under (in OZ and Kiwi land) but more as a tongue in cheek thing...he is so uncool he is cool. People talk about being 'Hoffed' and it has created a mini resurgence in Hoff memorabillia (Why, I'll never know!?).
Anyway back to the K.I.T.T. look...
A completely black, and I mean 100% black, GT or LX could be wicked. Imagine black chromed pipe, bar ends, mirrors and black annodised alloy wheels!
Might be worth an attempt in Photoshop for a bit of fun!
Cheers

When your scoot starts talking to you you'll be "Hoffed".

Kevin has one of the best custom paint jobs I've seen on a modern Vespa.
