Yesterday while I was getting the v 7.0 done, I saw the '07 K1200S in black. OMG!

If I had not bought the Silver one 3 days before, I would have seriously considered buying the black one even if it meant having one less bike.

I saw an '07 in the back garage at Irv Seaver's in Orange, done in black and dark blue. Gorgous bike. When I get my '03 RS paid off soon, it's going to be difficult to resist the temptation.

Well, my '05 will no longer be unique. I guess I'll have to look on the positive side... now it will look like an '07.

Not likely to happen on a bike I bought elsewhere (private party).

I might buy a whole new set of fairings in black just to have that option of switching the color. Bet it's expensive. Then there is the carbon fibre (CF) option which can be painted with some CF showing through.

why isn't the frame and shaft drive black? If it was I'd go for the 07 hands down.. but the silver 06 wins... Makes no sense to have all black bike and silver frame and shaft and forks...

Umm... makes perfect sense to me... I don't like the no-contrast look. Black frame, maybe... black wheels, no way.

All black would look so stealthy !!!
I'm gonna go for it with the all CF bike if it happens...

Yep - sure is good being hard to see by all those other road users. Black vehicles suck - particularly the long slow ones with the pretty box in the back. Ever heard the term "victim of fashion"
