  2. Pearl if you're having it done, looks great in the sun.

    Flat if you're spraying it yourself, I can't get pearl to work properly
    in the garage at home, think it might be to do with the quality of
    the spray gun (or the sprayer).

    PS My fzr 600 is pearl, what's left of it.

  5. I like pearl, but it really depends on what colour the undercoat is. You can get all sorts of different tints for white pearl.

    I've seen guys with 'white pearl' paint jobs on their cars, that look light pink in the sun, because of the base coat.

    Point it out, comedy ensues. :)

  6. Personally, were I to ever own a white bike, it would be slightly greyish, with a sprinkling of oily fingerprints.
