Agreed- I might just do that!
I always worried about scratching or scuffing the body-coloured grab handles on my 05 and 07 FJRs when I had them so something I can easily colour-match if needed is much preferred

Getting the hang of using the forum again!
Have also owned a 2005 FJR1300 and a 2007 FJR1300A and at various times, a Hornet 900, a Fazer 600, an MT-01, a Rocket III Roadster, a K1200R, a Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 SE, 2 Tiger 1200s - but never mind those!

Thank you

Thanks all for the warm welcome.
Apologies for the multiple posts - I am still getting used to using the forum! Is there any way I can delete the unwanted duplicates?
I also love the black and gold colour combination. Who remembers the John Player Special Formula 1 cars (or the cigarette packets) - or the Twinings black and gold packaging for their premium teas? Maybe I worked at Twinings for too long

Definitely, been following F1 since I was a kid, still follow it. Those Lotus JPL liveries were nice and part of F1 history.
