Yes, the blue and white is definately the best performance tweak there is.
On a related and serious note, did you see that guy's black storm that he posted at the other forum that he had a white strip put on? I gotta tell you, thats now my fav color ! I always loved the black/white combo, but i didn't realize HOW much i would on the bird's scheme. Looks awesome, far better than the plain black which is actually my least fav i think. Only thing is, as much as i like it i would pass at tha chance to swap tank and fenders with him because black is the worse color once it ages. You can never get that new beautiful look back once it's been cleaned a few times and the scratches set in. Otherwise i might be considering having mine painted, thats how much i like it !
