A lot of people do. Very unique, very masculine. Hell, it's hard to even describe that color, and the name doesn't do anything but make things confusing.

Get it (without the luggage if you plan on dropping it) and start adding farkles!!!

And if you buy the bike this week, you can get yourself a real adventure helmet from the wall behind the bike for 25% off

I agree

It is a great color. I love my Triple Black, but I want this color too!

That'd be my choice out of the current offerings too. Still not likely to be a fast or as rugged as the original 09 yellow

Very nice! Finally a color other than black worth owning.

I am waiting on the water GS but this is a very cool bike. I wish this color was an option for the GS then it would be perfect.

I assume you mean to say the 1200, because the bike above is a GS.

If you're colorblind like me, this color is giving you headaches

I got this color and like it. I had a choice between this and white at the dealer and chose this. When I saw the colors online this was my last choice, but it grows on you. ;)

I'm ordering mine soon, and even though I usually don't shop by color I did in this case rather than get what was in stock. It is really unique and matches the the bike's character.

You don't want a variation of orange?

At least with the KTM's... you know they're KTM's.

Honestly I don't care what logo is on the side of the bike, and for the most part what color either. This particular bike seems to have everything I want, and the color is a bonus...
