Defenseless? Nah. Figured ole Pluric would chime in pretty quick. His wit is a lot of what I miss about the S10, strangely enough. I did kind of forget he is so homophobic about the Raven ones tho.

So I gotta ask, how much slower is the blue color than the preferred Raven? My firs one was Raven, but there don't seem to be many of those left new.
Aw, c'mon! People wanna read a review of the 2014 model. Take one for the team, but please do so in BLUE!

Yup, that WOULD be taking one for the team if you reviewed a blue one....

Kind of what I was thinking. The whole "take one for the team" doesn't sit well when the discussion of S10 colors comes up .
But since I've not been following this thread for a while, what has the assembled wisdom (?!?!) here determined are the ramifications or indications of the white and flat black '13 colors? I kind of really like that white one. Besides, the '14s reportedly won't get here until the current ones are sold through. If enough folks figure out what a deal these things are at the current selling price, they'll go pretty quickly. Then again, I predicted KTM 990's being given away when the 1190 came out, and that hasn't happened either. Investment advice anyone?

Seriously, the management has been trying to tone down the color bit, as it went a bit over the top.

Every time somebody posts a good photo of either the gray or white, there's usually a flurry of "nice bike" posts. They both have solid followings.

Glad to see you may be back.

Hey Peckercheker I had a photo of the Raven toy collection too. It's NSFW and would probably
lead to a permaban so I'll just leave that one in the file.

6 inches of new snow last night. On top of last weeks storm. Cabin fever is setting in early this
year. FedEx has me down for the 11th on the rear shock delivery. Should have bought a plow instead!

Three or four inches of ice in North Texas, we aren't going anywhere.
