Appropo of nothing, I washed the LT yesterday and as the sun was setting, I swear there's a Purple cast to the paint.

Is there a pearlcoat or am I sniffing something?

Don't you wish it was purple.
Loren will tell you...it's the best color there is ( and the fastest )

But in all honesty, I think methemarism has something to do with color looking different in certain lighting.

I have a gray Lincoln that turns a beautiful purple when the sunset is red. It's amazing...... :D

Sorry about the misspell, but I worked a lot with color and it's repeatability. Certain colors react drastically under changing light sources and it all has to do with the make up of the colorants.

I didn't know it was a thing. I had an RX-7 that was kind of a nice Red in daylight, but turned turd brown at night.

Do you think it may have been a reflection off that poor young man in the photo who was wearing a short sleeved shirt in the dead of Colorado winter?

Howdy all! I've been up to my ears in homework! It's good to see that there are some converts to purple out there. Even if it does involve methinsophomoretinism(sp?). I think I have earned a quick ride then back to the books!

Great looking ride and a fine looking young man in the saddle!

He's one of two. Unfortunately, that means there'sa competition between both brothers and Mom for the Pillion spot. ;)

Well than, just take a look at Loren's rig. The sidecar holds two--not too large-people and leaves the pillion seat for the third person. I think that would be your answer.

Methamphetamine psychosis could also be a factor in some cases, although I suspect NOT this one. ;)

I'm not sure I quite conveyed the point. The bike is used to GET AWAY...not bring EVERYTHING WITH ME!

:D

It's good for...selectively...bringing along one family member for 1:1 time.
