Just so you know, I would never have your bike this close to your tent. I've had my bike fall over in the middle of the night before. Especially with soft dirt or even if a rain moves through it will sink quickly.

I agree. Park it across the front of your door, leaning away from the tent. Across the door??? Gives a bit of privacy.

New colors

I was in my dealers warehouse today and saw two crates containing new 800 XCs. The labels were marked Mint Green and Sapphire Blue. Anybody have one yet? Anybody seen one yet? Any pics?

Any chance it may have been a smudged Matte Green and your minds eye saw Mint Green? I have seen the blue on the larger 1200. It's a nice darker blue.

There is no 'mint' green (it's Khaki), and Sapphire Blue is only available on the Roadie 800 or the standard Explorer.
