while this bike is still in excellent mechanical condition, and still very clean and tidy cosmetically (as you can see in the photos above), it has been used off-road, and does have a few scratches and scars here and there.
Along with the odd scuff around the foot-pegs/pedals and exhaust header, there is some signs of wear to the plastic tank panel (directly in front of the seat - from my jacket), but the main areas of paint wear are to the plastic panels below the seat - see below:
...which was from where my Giant Loop Coyote bag rubbed the paint over many thousands of miles.
Personally I kind of like that rubbed patina look (you'd pay a bucket of cash for the same 'rubbed through to the metal' effect from a custom paint-shop ;o) on the side panels, but equally they would be simple to repaint them should you desire.
As I say, this bike was used for an extensive multi-terrain adventure and dual-sport ride last summer and covered quite a lot of miles over a short period (I worked it out at around 64 riding days in total). However, if you know me, you'll know I always take very good care of my bikes, and do my best not to crash or ride with undue care on or off road.
