It looked even better in person. Sorry for such a shitty picture but I only had my phone camera when they pulled out of a dealership in Dusseldorf, Germany.

No try again! To me that orange would just fuck this picture up, but that is just me!

And there would be far more orange on the GS than that R!

I would like to see more color choices but as a potential buyer I would rather see ADJ suspension

Indeed. technical changes on suspension would be very welcome, according to what I hear (no experience on this bike yet, which I will do ride before pulling a trigger).

And between the yellow and the dark silver of the 08 and 09 years, I would had opted for the dark silver as well. I want to see what the new colors look like before I make judgment between white or orange. But these colors seem promising to me.

I think it matters because orange is ugly.

A dark green might be good.

I have seen where you have mentioned this before. I live in SC - ridden when it was 104 and super humid with nary a concern.
My 06 VFR was one hot bugger - talk about roasting thighs. Temps read over 240 in traffic.

Touratech has a video on youtube that has a white 800 in it. It's probably a custom paint job but I hope this is a sneak peak at the new paint scheme.

Suweet! Had I seen this before I bought my GSA I might have made another choice.

If you have any type of vented pant you will feel it. If not then you don't.

By keeping the shrouds black it definitely makes it more subtle. The orange might be manageable with that scheme but if it includes the shrouds, IMO it would be too much.
