BMW F800GS (new) Color Options
 
I like many of you am waiting on delivery of a 800GS, hopefully by Xmas. I doubt I'm the only one who's blown away by the current color offerings by BMW. With that in mind I took it upon myself to offer up some alternate color suggestions. I ordered the magnesium/grey color and will most likely be sending my panels out for a custom paint job. I'm also toying around with the idea of customizing the "GS" decal.

I've narrowed down my color options below. What do you all think?

I don't think you can make that bike look ugly, I'd take any of those! It's like the F650GS, they keep asking me what color I want and I keep telling them I don't care! I've never seen a bike that looks good in every color, but these do.

The black looks good. If you want a earth, enviro frendly machine, (as the saying goes, GO GREEN). If you are having a hard time choosing between a KTM and the 800, goe orange. I thought they all looked good though.

I'm digging the darker green one. That way when hit shits the fan around here big brother will never be able to see you from those black helis!:evil

Ha! I'm definitely leaning towards the dark green. Perhaps the "GS" branding would need to be replaced by a WWII black star. :)

Let me say it ain't me! One of the guys who went to the Touratech UK Open Weekend took the picture. Maybe he knows the story behind it too.

Looks like seriously lowered suspension too.

Damn, they all look good! I'd pick the first blue.

RobTheRigger 09-29-2008 03:46 PM

Can you do a pic with white body/ blue frame like the 80? THAT would be the heat!

StinkyCheese 09-29-2008 05:30 PM

Sweet!
 
Liking the green ones! The orange is cool but some KTM owner will suggest KTM envy.......:lol3

ChunkyXCracer 09-29-2008 05:57 PM

As a racer and huge fan KTM bikes......I of course am leaning towards the ORANGE. Very cool to see some other colors on the bike. Now if mine would just show up some time this year.

llamapacker 09-29-2008 06:24 PM

I would like to see white and dark grey or black.

Of the above, I like the orange. I had an orange HD superglide in, I think it was 1974.

This one is nice, thankyou:

I'd like to see a blue and white one.

rocker59 09-29-2008 07:13 PM

I'd pick one of the two greens.

Probably the lighter one.
