Looks nice, I like the graphics on the Upper Fairing Panels & Pannier Lids, (the Givi Top Case blends in well too).

Now how weird is that, not keen on the graphics on the grey, but on the blue looks quite smart, maybe I will warm to it. Hey I'm 64 I can change my mind If I want  :))

If you want to really tart it up and turn heads (plus go faster),  paint it Quartz blue

Hi looks cool, but beware its against road traffic law to display white light to the rear (reflective material) should only be red. Just don't want some keen policeman to stop you lol

Interesting. Thanks.
By the way, now the nights are closing in, is it only in Essex that we get cyclists wearing dark clothes riding without lights?

No Crater. Suicidal cyclists abound here in the Bristol area as well...!!!

I'm liking the fairing graphics. Are they retro-reflective (reflect white when hit by light source)? Did you purchase or design them? If purchased, where? And lastly, do they come in black?
I am waiting on the ship from Bremerhaven for my 2016 to arrive here in South Florida. Only down side is the new for 16 color, " Platinum Bronze Metallic" (champagne metallic by any other name),so went with black crash bars. The upside is the availability of black retro-reflective in a variety of formats. From pin stripping to custom cut panels for the panniers and top box. Fortunately, Florida DOT allows white reflectance to the rear. Point being, aside from looking great during the day, could also save your butt at night, if made of the right material.
Riding in the land of Xbox drivers together with others whose previous driving experience required expert use of rein and whip, I am all for being seen, both day and night, from as far off as possible, even though we know they are NOT looking out for us.
Stay safe.
Oh the places we will go

Try gsstickerman.co.uk. They've got a new website. Deliver worldwide apparently. All reflective and in black too.
The white looks good on the Callisto Grey but UK Traffic Regs do say reflectors to the rear should only be red in colour.

Hey Crater,
Thanks very much for the link. Had a bit of trouble putting the order through, seems their web site doesn't like all US browsers, but just got it done today. I ordered the black reflective to go with the new for 2016 "Platinum Bronze Metallic". I will probably have the decals before the bike arrives here in South Florida.  8)
Be well.
Stay safe,
Jono
