Sorry about the poor quality picture. I'll post better today. By the time the dealer assembled and explained all the controls and features ( no small feat) and I rode the 60 miles home it was getting late and the shadows were long. Technically it is not silver, it is Matt Chrome. The color matches the bottom skid plate and exhaust perfectly. Originally I wanted red but actually like this better. Of course that opinion was shaped by the fact that Matt Silver was the only choice if I wanted the first 2013 Touring S in San Antonio area.
The ride home was in the low 40s without heated gear. I know most of you would kill for a sunny day in the 40s, but for this south Texas boy it was cold. I'll hook up the gear today and give a ride report.
Indeed it will be a happy new year?
