I'm torn as to what color Vee I want to search for, and I think I have it narrowed down to either Red or Black, and I'm hoping to get some better pics from different angles. I've not seen the black in person yet, but I have seen the red and looked it over pretty good. If anyone can help me out with some nice shots of the black 1000, that'd be fantastic. That's kinda the one I'm leaning towards right now, but I'd love a better look at it.

I just missed out on a GREAT red one in the F/S section, and right now I've got no lines on any used reds. One used black though in Indiana, not TOO far from here.

Lucky you! :mrgreen:

Seriously, besides some of them considered to be faster than others (:D), the color is something which is very individual, but unless you are a maniac bikewasher you should be aware of following:
Dark colors are are much more sensitive to dirt and scratches than the light ones.
In order:
Silver
Gray
Yellow
Red
Blue
Matt black (n/a int he US)
Black

State 8 Motorcycles had a new 05 in black a while ago. Don't know if they still do. It wasn't on the showroom floor. It was next door at the old BOOT SCOOT SALOON. They now own that and store bikes in it. Here is a link to there site. I didn't see it listed but they don't do a good job of updating there web site.

Stop beating yourself up man, and go pull the trigger on a bike. A red bike of course! It's only money. You're buying a Vee for goodness sakes. You don't want to start sounding like one of those frugal, practical Wee types!

MZBuckeye, just go buy the red one and enjoy it. They do look good in that color, a very finished appearance IMO. Of course my opinion may not count for much, being a frugal Wee rider and all. lol.
