I like matt carbon, if you look at ''real'' carbon applications like in F1 etc the carbon is always matt.

Be carefull with the matt bodywork though, my R1 had matt side panels, they are impossible to get any marks out of, you just end up with a shiny panel

PS, whats the latest thoughts on the RR?

Pleased for you! It's a great looking bike. i have changed the suspension to Ohlins, The BMW sachs kind of cons you at first to thinkig it's good......................then you find out the truth:naughty:

I know from old you mod your bikes, whats planned for the RR?

are you just going to rub the lacquer off the carbon? I didnt think you could do to be honest, i thought it was coated with something other then lacquer.
