That matt graphite color looks much better than than the matt black. It gives the bike some much needed color. Now if Triumph would just throw a gloss coat on it. ;-)

Yep....I like the graphite much better than the gloss black. I think I'm going to do a custom paint job because I don't like the way the gloss black meshes with the other flat black bike components....plus, the quality of the stock paint just sucks

And it does look much better in the flesh...so to speak.
I also got a shot of one of the new paint schemes on the 2013 tbird.
The black and marbled red...will try to get that pic up tonight when I get home from work.
It looks really nice....

I agonized over this marble red haze.. and the blue/white 'bird. I eventually settled on the blue/white. But man.. that red haze is striking to look at!
