So the blue one you looked at had the center spoke area black as well?
Oh yea Denim blue, black hubs & spokes, upper fork tubes and frame. Didn't prefer the black frame, though it did look great with the Denim blue - I like the silver exo skeleten frame look on my '06 R better, plus the bike was 600 miles closer to my back door - but that '07 will probably be worth more long term since it's so rare - minor regret - (y) :cool:

Gotcha, I was curious as I have an '06 Rich Sunglo Blue; however, the wheels are all silver, as is the frame.

Trying to think of a solution to ridding the spokes (coarse finish) of all the brake dust they collect.

My solution ( best on a cycle jack so you can spin both wheels but doable on the driveway if you roll the bike ) is to wipe shiny R Model aluminum wheel rim sections with WD40 or Wax to protect them, then spray dirty spokes & hub with S100 Cycle cleaner, let it soak, clean with a tooth brush and/or a brass brush ( aluminum safe ) and spray off with water. ride around block to dry & polish /wax aluminum part of wheels. Works great. Eventually I'll powder coat my wheel spokes black, grey etc. but even then they need a gentle cleaning to remove brake dust. You'll never escape occasional cleaning. Low dust ceramic pads will help a bit next brake pad change. (y) :cool:
