Looking forward to seeing pictures closer and in the daylight.
My experience with using cans on anything is that they don't produce as fine a spray as required to get a smooth coat.
I've seen cars where people have tried to do this and the results were less than impressive.

Otherwise, looks great. Especially when you're traveling around 60 on the highway.
Are you planning on any kind of clear-cote to finish?

Looks good in these pics as well.

Now all you have to do is get a roll of masking tape, a Harbor Freight air brush and maybe some pin striping from an auto store.
You can get the tank and bags blended like the fairing in no time.

Looks pretty good especially for a first time. I can't tell but you didn't paint the Honda emblem did you? Please so no. :lol:
Thanks to all who answer and help. It is greatly appreciated!
