As shown in this picture, you don't even need a side stand anymore!
That's cuz they're gonna start putting a car tire on the rear. It'll stand up by itself. Awesome.
Has enyone else here ever been to a motorcycle dealership? Have you noticed that other manufacturers make models that have color options? Is this a sign that FJR sales are so low that it's not cost effective to offer color options?
When I bought my CBR, I think there were something like 6 color options!!!
Unless I was just to young to notice, this single color for an ST per year started in about 1988 with the debut of that stupid Honda Pacific Coast 800. They were all a light gold or beige color...Remember? At the time, Honda claimed the single color was done to promote world unity. For some reason, it seems Japanese manufactures kind of took to that idea and stuck with it...Especially with the ST market.
However, if I remember right, I think Kawasaki did the same thing with the KLR650s. Right. My 2005 was red as were all I saw, and my buddy's 2007 is black, as are all the 2007s I see roaming around.
Either way, I like my Black Cherry bike. It is paid off, runs like a champ, moves its ass off, is farkled for the way I like to ride it, and will take one Hell of an upgrade to make me go out and buy a new one. Besides...My color is not recycled...Yet.
