    White and blue looks good. I've always liked that color on BMW. Can you show me what white with orange would look like.......I also think "sunset orange" (orange metallic color on chevy/cadillacs...) with black would look good

    I like number 1, all black, very sexy! Great for the city and hiding somewhere away from prying eyes.

    Number 4, dark forest green, nice color, militaristic! Sweet.

    Seven's so awesome, white and blue, niiiice mix! If it was on the showroom floor, it'll be mine fast!

    Nine's a nice desert color, not for me but lovely!

    Ten, orange metallic, my kind of color. Used to have a Rockster, glad I sold it, it was heavy!

    If it was my money, I'll have the white and blue! Even though it'll not match my riding clothes but who cares!

    Dayumm... I don't think you can make that bike look ugly.
    I vote for the first blue one (steel blue?).

    Some really nice ideas there :clap :clap

    My vote would go to the white / blue variant at the moment, but I'd be really interested to see your take on one in BMW Motorsport colours - could be a winner :evil :evil

    I really think Wunderlich and Touratech need to use my 650 as a real-world test bed...

    I love the OD Green ones! Now how about making the exhaust Black, along with anything else that’s bright and or shiny!! <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Springfish, you took a great idea and made it real. thanks.

    My 800 shows up in about january, I've been spending my time not dreaming about farkels, yet. I've been planning on color changes. First thought was white, ALL white, the better to show the dirt. Then, chrome, rattle can chrome to be specific, as a tribute to all the chrome fendered bikes of old, it might look ok from 100' away. Then the various combos used on the 11/12GS line, some I really like.

    But the greens you used, perfect. I wonder how close Derusto comes to that color?

    Or how about this, I'm only a couple hours away, maybe a wintertime painting party is in order. One side of your bike one color, the other side of mine to match, then something else on side 3, to match side 4, or not.

    HA! Painting party it is! Though I'm thinking the party should be held at a local powder coating facility just to be sure we get it right. ;) The rattling of paint cans next to a $12k bike (my first real bike in fact) makes me nervous. Though after a case of ice cold Rainiers are consumed, I'd probably be into it.

    Coming from the dark side I was hoping for orange, but I guess I can live with yellow! :D

    Dark green or tan/khaki look great.

    The desert camo and dark green ones are nice. Black one, too. But I think a shade of orange would look great. The orange that BMW used on the 2003 F650CS (not GS). That was a nice orange. Had more gold and less red in it.
