Default Grills and bars

Nothing to do with food or alcohol, but I have a choice of grills and vent bars for my VDP.

Thought I'd post pics of the various combinations, maybe help anyone who was thinking of changing theirs.

Clockwise from the top left: 1) Vertical grill with chrome vent bar. 2) Mesh grill with chrome vent bar. 3) Mesh grill with body-colored vent bar. 4) Vertical grill with body-colored vent bar.

Any preferences?

Went w/ mesh grill/chrome vent bar here, but your front license plate offers a different dynamic than mine. The mesh color also looks good because it flows with the activity of the plate & is a close 2nd.

KC, right now I'm riding with the mesh-color, it's surprising how so little makes such a difference, to me the colored vent bar lowers and widens the front end, a little more "aggressive" look.
