Nice to see that color intolerance and discrimination have survived the move. We like Capri Blue a lot. That's why we have 2. We probably even like whatever you have too.

I have a Capris Blue '03. Definitely not my first choice color but the price was right. Got to say that more people comment on how they love the color than on any other bike I have owned (12 Italian, English, Spanish, Japanish) in 35 years of riding.

It's a nice change from the standard Black, Silver, Red, Dark Blue of most bikes.

I didn't like the capri blue at first, but it has grown on me. My wife bought hers last year and we did a litle 'treatment' on it to make it stand out.

I got mine in March of this year, $15k plus 0.9% and 5 free payments. I was quite pleased. Got the color I wanted, Alpine White / Orient Blue, just love it.

I will add one more to the side of the Capri Blue being a good color! I rode with a Capri Blue RS for most of the past year (he traded on a blue/white S). I ride a blue/white zebra (my personal favorite). At stops we both got many compliments; sometimes together, sometimes one would get it and not the other. Many of the positive comments about the Capri Blue were "I have never seen that color on a bike before...I like it!" or something similar.
