Are you sure it's not the Crystal Grey version that was offered in '06-'07 that you're thinking of?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I'm thinking it is the CG too. When the color was first announced, it was often called "refrigerator white." I don't know how that happened, but there is one dealer in So. Cal who still calls it by that color. Must be some ingrained picture seen somewhere.

It is the Crystal Gray color. It looks white in most of the pictures I have seen on the web and in certain lighting conditions. I thought it looked good when I thought it was white but the actual color in the flesh is different.

Refrigerator white is pretty good. My bike is this color, and it's not white nor is it grey. It's more a kind of pearlescent tan and changes tones depending on the light and viewing angle. I noticed this the other day at Marin BMW when it was parked next to a bunch of police bikes, which are very very white.
