I may have located an 08 finally, but it is vivid/pewter. Very nice color combo, but I was hoping for vivid/orange. Anyone out there with the orange setup willing to trade for pewter?

The Pewter is so..

The Pewter is so cool looking, plus with the Pewter you can put some chrome accents on the DX like chrome braided cables and it makes everything jump out at you.

Do chrome anything with the orange strips and it looks out of place. But, the Pewter it accents perfectly with chrome or black accessories.

I also "settled" for the pewter....but I have to admit it has grown on me - a lot.

Understated, classy, still kinda "hot-roddy" (if thats a word).....

get it in the sun and she sparkles right up.

I no longer feel like I 'settled'.....

I was after the denim, but after washing her a few times, I am WAY glad I ended up with vivid.......

Hell - when it comes down to it - they are all BAD ASSSSSSSSSSS

I actually LOVE the pewter flake metallic......now.
I didn't like the orange at all...but certainly was a good match for the lettering and the wheel pinstriping...that one has flow. But not for me. I wanted the '07 color scheme of vivid w/ denim stripes. Whatever. I chose "the lesser of two evils".....so to speak. Dig?

[EDIT]-Just realized...the pewter flake is IDENTICAL to the silver metallic flake the Patriots use for their helmets.....minus the blood from the last six teams they've rolled through and over....Ahhh.....all is well.

The orange doesn't match the HD lettering either

The orange strips don't match the H-D lettering just like the Pewter doesn't match.

Orange is the racing color and it's color matched for thanksgiving and halloween, oh martha stewart is so proud of willie g.

Why not just get some orange vinyl stripes and place them over your stripes. I know it wouldn't be the same but it would look good and you could remove it later if you want.
You can get vinyl very thin now so you almost cant tell its a sticker.

I like my pewter stripes. Racing stripes makes my bike go faster. If I had red stripes, then I would be able to go even faster...

Doc, I'm with you. I got the vivid/pewter because it was available sooner, what I really wanted was the vivid/orange. Oh well I can live with it. It seems like a lot of DXers had to settle for what was available.

What I thought I wanted was the Vivid/Pewter but when the only DX that was available was a Vivid/Orange I jumped on it. I haven't regretted my decision for even an instant. The Orange really jumps out. Then again, I loved my Millenium Yellow Zo6. Guess I'm addicted to really loud colors.

Now I'm trying to find a good pinstriper to redo my Harley helmet with orange pinstripes to replace the white. Anyone know someone in the Northern Virginia area?

Had my choice of orange or pewter

When I bought my 08 DX I had the choice of orange stripes or pewter stripes. After seeing how the chrome braided cables look on the bike with the pewter stripes I knew I had made the right choice.

My bud's got a DX with orange stripes, but chrome looks out of place on his black bike.

The pewter stripes complement any little chrome accents.
