Re: 09 colors?

I wouldn't hold my breathe for the return of CGM if I were you. But you never know when BMW will ship one over even if it's not one of the colors for '09. My brother has a black '03 LT. Black wasn't supposed to be available that year. In fact, I know of several black '03 LTs. BMW is wacky that way.

Re: 09 colors?

What I've heard is that for MY '09 the colors would not change, however, the engine will be upgraded to 1300cc. Engine upgrade due in March '09.

Re: 09 colors?

I saw a deep red GT in Park City, Utah last friday.

Does it come in red?

Nope. Must be a custom paint job.

Red was a custom paint job. Dave Adler's bike.

The Aventurin Silver Metallic is pretty damn close to CGM

Like this bike needs more power?!

You already can go from, "Son do you know how fast you were going" to "Are those hand cuffs to tight?" in about 12 seconds flat.

That was a custom paint job. Very nice, though, I saw it as well and rally liked it.

During the "Ask BMW" sessions at CCR a few folks raised the issue about the colors BMW offer, both in quantity of options, a few more vibrant options, and even some graphics packages like on the early K12RS. Don't knwo if anything will come of it, but at least they were asking the question and heard the opinion of our groups (2 sessions).
