Ok guys,

I'm in the last stages of the process here. I'm gonna get a 2006 ZX10R. I like both colors. But slightly favoring the Solar Yellow(saw one the other day). Yes, I know its ultimately my choice, so people thinking of flaming with that comment can go take a hike.

here are the choices, but the yellow pic does not do justice for what it really looks like in real life:

It's almost like a burnt orange more than yellow. Probably looks different in person. I've always been a big fan of solid black bikes, but the yellow looks good. I certainly wouldn't say no to the yellow bike if the choice were mine.

You'll be spotted in traffic easier with the yellow. That'll make it safer cuz the cages can't miss ya. But then neither will the cops..:cooocoo

I had a friend who had the pumpkin Honda CBR600F4 and when we'd rag on his bike he'd announce "Man, shut up, this bike steps out and gets attention!" Shortly after saying that we were sitting on the side of the road while he had discussions with Mr. Small Town Policeman. After that I'd just tell him it was getting all the wrong attention. He later wrecked it and had it fixed and painted solid black. :laugh

I like the black better.

Yeah Jasen,

I was thinking if I ever rash it up, a solid black, with stock stickers, then clearcoat, would be an easy fix if it ever came down to it. So, I slightly favor the yellow at the moment since I could always black it out and still look new with the right color.

Might want to check Ebay, there was a dealer this past weekend with on around 9500 with a shipping scratch. I think I could live with a scratch if it saved me 2000+. Seems it was a northern dealer too.

Thanks... umm... but I'm already well under that price. :)

...even with the price difference, I'd still go with the yellow one - black is the easy option for the "track" body work...
