    This blue looks different than the current offering. Can someone confirm this by providing the name? (Maybe biarritz blue metallic???)

    Knutt, I am in the exact position as you. I put a deposit on the white and saw the KS orange and thought no way. The white now looks sort of underwhelming and the orange very nice. An update where I ordered my GS (Long Beach BMW) they say early September for delivery but another dealer said October so who knows?

    I'm still stuck on the white though if I modify the white and add the blue per Springfish's photoshop. It looks like an easy paint job and the blue would match my K1200S Tricolor. Here is the thread http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=390237

    The white seems like an improved silver. The orange an improved yellow.

    White is cool, IMO, but I am glad I found 09 Dark magnesium metallic matt (I really like these silly color names) at the dealer and got fair price for it. :D

    That was my colour of choice but since the '10's are so close and I thought white sounded nice I decided to wait another month, perhaps some minor updates as well....:ear

    The white looks great; the orange is horrible.

    I will wait until I see the actual bikes to make a judgment on colors. Both look great to me, from pictures.

    So are you saying that you have one or just saw a white one at BMW Denver? Or both since that was yours they were uncrating!

    Not mine. I went down to get pre-approved for financing and to see what the ETA was. I was thinking more of September before the 2010 models hit the floor. Boy I was wrong. I want the lava but that white one looked really good.

    Hmmm will have to make a stop by to check out the new colors! I was just in there last week buying a new blinker lense on my way back from Georgia pass! Maybe this time I have no reason! :D

    I had actually been thinking about painting mine white with blue highlights. Something to sort of mimic the 06 1150GSA.

    Just to remind all of us what the new 2010 new colors have to stack up against. The mighty yellow. It just has off-road written on it. I regard the yellow as the classic GS colour on all their models.
