And you can always paint it too.

After seeing the orange K bike, ughh! But then again, the GS wont be so orangy, less bodywork.

maybe it's black. or so some purists think.
they also have that red white & blue scheme, but they're a german co not a US co.
Sorry, I cant put quotes form several posters.

BMW's official (or chosen) colour is white with 2 shades of blue stripes and a red stripe.

That's their official racing color scheme, not only for bikes but also for cars. Not as fixed as ktm with it's orange.

Last I've heard, 2010 bikes on these two new colors have already started been assembled. And some are already on their way to BMW dealers in the US. No pictures of 2010 F800GS in Europe so far?

Anything but white. White looks ok on say, a G7 or a police bike, but that is about it.

There are a bunch of countries that have red, white, and blue flags, not just the U.S. Among them (off the top of my head): The UK, France, Russia, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Iceland, The Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Liberia, North Korea, Malaysia, The Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Cuba, Costa Rica, Panama, Chile, and several more that escape me at the moment. Red, White and Blue is hardly the exclusive domain of us Yanks. Blissful ignorance about the world beyond our borders seems to be, though.

I hear those damn Americans also make vast generalizations regarding an entire population based on the comments of one individual.

Knutt, I am in the exact position as you. I put a deposit on the white and saw the KS orange and thought no way. The white now looks sort of underwhelming and the orange very nice. An update where I ordered my GS (Long Beach BMW) they say early September for delivery but another dealer said October so who knows?

I'm still stuck on the white though if I modify the white and add the blue per Springfish's photoshop. It looks like an easy paint job and the blue would match my K1200S Tricolor. Here is the thread http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=390237
