Opinions on colors

Looking for opinions. I love black motorcycles, and have a vivid black 13DX. I was looking for denim black, but this one was too good of a deal to pass up.

I thought about painting it, even just rattle canning it flat black, but couldn't bring myself to do it. Plus I saw the Sedona Orange NRS, then the red ones, and recently the Stormtrooper white NRS.

Then I remembered PlastiDip. And it's available in all sorts of insane colors now. Used to be just black, LOL. Best of both worlds. I can make my NRS any color I want for about $30-$50, then peel it off back to stock when wanted. Save me a shit ton of money buying new tins or repainting.

Here's my dilemma: I can't decide what color. I like that flat black with either orange or vivid black racing stripes, but kinda want something bold like the Stormtrooper look, gloss white with black stripes. I'm also open to other option. I'm a police officer, so black with a thin blue line also interests me. And I can get tank decals on several colors on Amazon for around $10-$11 to complete the look.

Yes, I know PlastiDip won't look exactly factory, but it's an easy way for me to change colors whenever I want. When done right, PlastiDip can look VERY good.

So give me your opinions:
1. Flat black with orange stripes
2. Flat black with glass black stripes
3. Stormtrooper (I'm a nerd, so eat my shorts)
4. Black with a thin blue line
5. Other - give me your choice of color, color combo.

My R Model is the Mirage Orange Pearl but I really like the #1 Flat black with Orange Stripes #5 I also really like Blue and Black together, like the Kenny Wayne Shepard song "Blue on Black" but if they could get close to H-D CVO Blue with a flat black stripe that would look awesome.

Yea, that's the CVO blue color - Cobalt Blue with a flat black stripe ( a gloss black gets lost in the blue but flat stands out better ) I have a spare airbox cover and back fender, need front fender but it's either that or the flat black with orange stripe Tough decision either really classy good looking or rough tough race look. For a police officer " Mr Orange " the blue and black has to be the right colors !

Hmmmm ... The blue and black is starting to intrigue me more. My Wrangler is black with blue accents too.
