Hello from North Carolina

Bought a new matte silver naked s1000. I'm sure I'll be making plenty of post her.

I think the matte paint is going to make me go crazy seeing all the little knicks in it.

Hi and welcome,

I hope you get on OK with the matt finish, you're just going to look after her! I just couldn't live with something I can't polish to a mirror shine!

Hello from S.Fl. I had the same concern with the matte silver so I opted for the red and black. Great color though!

Oh lord I'm only 500 miles in and I have 4 scratches on it. I have no idea where they even came from. The plastics underneath are black so they really show through.

I just keep telling myself, I bought it for the performance, not the paint
