DX Color Options

I've been considering going back to DX from my Fat Boy Lo, but I just don't like the color scheme's currently available.

I don't suppose anybody knows if Harley plans on going back to the matte black with gloss black stripes anytime in the next couple of years do they?

I just don't like the orange on matte black all that much. At least not enough to make me trade at the moment. Love the bike though...find myself missing my 07.

They "yellow" is sharp! And I do like it, however I had a Hemi Orange Challenger and while I loved the color at first, after a while I kind of got tired of it.

I also tend to be really partial to the matte black color for some reason. Even my current fat boy is the matte...

CPTJAMs looks a little whiter than the grey I chose

I considered white but it was "too white". I have a friend with a grey GPZ1100 with black trim and it looks tits so that's what I went with.

OK, my bad. Your grey looked like white that was shot in a bad light to me.

Just messin' with you...I know it's not a good picture, and having a blue background didn't help either. Once I get the rad shrouds and fairing painted in January, I'll be swapping the tins out and taking proper pictures to post.

I searched high and low for a unique color because black ones are a dime a dozen around here and I wanted something to set mine apart. Grey was the only color I've never seen on a vrod so that's what I went with. I think it's gonna look pretty good with the black trim.
