After seeing those pictures Orange is not SO bad. I could learn to live with it. It just makes me think of KTM when I see it.

At least then I could get this helmet to match!

LOL



Sorry guys, I'll stop. I'll believe the new colors thing when I see them at dealerships or riding around though.
In the meantime I'll kill my MinnKota..........

I've got my white F800GS on order at my BMW dealer and I'm supposed to be the first on the list but I was also the guy that had the 09 yellow one on hold until, oops, I showed up expecting it to be there!

I talked about this thread with the service rep and he estimated a $1,000 dollars to do whatever I want with out going crazy with the color scheme. That includes the painting and labor and the biggest labor cost is if I want the gas tank pulled off to be painted which I do.

They can also include the price of this in the "official sell price" if you want to finance it and do it before you take delivery of the bike.

Orange

I picked up an orange one this weekend. I like it a lot. The orange is metallic and changes colors slightly depending on the light. They had a white one waiting to get picked up and I liked that one surprisingly more than I thought I would. Both colors are better than last year which I thought was great.

First time for me off of asphalt. Rocky Mtn National Park's Old Fall River Road. Lots of fun except for the dust kicked up by the cages. The switchbacks had a lot of loose sand but the bike handled it with no problems.

Digging on the dark green one. Has anyone gone out for a ballpark quote on getting the panels painted?

Mine was originally shipped yellow. I wanted grey but was going to have to wait 2 extra months. I painted it charcoal:


Now I'm bored again. The bike is 90% sanded again and ready for a new color. I like orange but not the BMW shade, I'd like more of a KTM colour. Maybe a Kawasaki lime green? Can someone with photochop skills whip that one up for me?

How are you painting GNP? Rattle can? Paint gun? How long does R&R of the panels take?
