AND definitely NOT: Invisablue, Desk Accessory Tan, Rotten Week-Old-Orange-Peel, Hit-Me Grey, or all those other colors that BMW thinks are so uber-vunderbar on their other models.

OMG, don't even suggest it; BMW will see it and the next seat will have little Hummel Figures printed on it. Somebody should lock BMW's Color and Design Group in a closet with their counterparts at Ducati until the wine and deodorant run out.:D

The first BMW I ever rode was an R60 back in 1970; it was black and I thought it was magnificent (still do).

Then, in Germany in 1973, I remember seeing a military courier wearing a black leather coat, black gauntlet gloves and tall black boots riding a wooded B-road on a highly glossy forest/olive green BMW; I thought that (entire picture) was magnificent too.

There's a black R1200R in my garage right now. It could be forest green, though. It might even be one day if I can ever afford the leather outfit.

I was rethinking that statement "until the wine and deodorant run out," slapped the side of my hand and realized: 'Italians and Germans! Deodorant? What was I thinking?!'

So let's just lock them in a room until the wine runs out. :D
