Best Color for a Vstrom...???

Was just slacking off and got to thinking about what color I would have chosen if I hadn't bought used and thought that might make an interesting poll.

I have two favorites: They yellow strom and that burnt sort of orangeish sunset color.

Whats yours??? If you have modified your paint job please include a pic

.....don't get me wrong I like my blue one...but bought used and got a a great deal on the blue one I have! I ain't sayin' I'm just sayn' lol

I will tally the votes in a week or two.

Old Honda Hawk 400-deceased
1980ish Honda CB 550 4k-honestly couldn't say what happened to her lol
1982 Honda Nighthawk 550-part of the trade that brought me yours truly:

I really like the white ones.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.

The orange looks good and it's a new color for the 650 (not to be confused with the yellow 1000 of years past).

People say yellow attracts bugs. I don't know. I think it's speed that attracts bugs. lol

Color is subjective, of course, but there is no doubt that the blue ones tend to owned by a better class of loser, as opposed to the general riff-raff that seems to be attracted to the other colors.

The best, and fastest color is, Rhinoliner.

(With a little rust mixed in here and there for contrast. The rust sets the Rhinoliner off nicely under the right lighting conditions.)
