I am interested in viewing photos of the '07 orange metallic wings because I think it may be a color I'm interested in. If any of you have some quality up close pics that you can post it would be appreciated.

Thanks

Do yourself a HUGE favor and get up off your chair and go to a dealer and see one in person!!! That orange this year is the most interesting color I have ever seen on a bike. Outside it is absolutley beautiful... Pictures on here and online do NOTHING to tell you the honest color that Honda put on this wing..

It was my second choice to Black cherry metallic....

The problem is, Matt, that I can't find a dealer around me that has one on their floor. Otherwise, I would get off my chair.

Thanks for your help.

I took a couple of photos of my Dark Orange Metalic 07, printed one large photo and took it to work to show to some fellow workers. Everyone thought it was pretty. I rode my new bike to work a few days later, everyone who lookes at the picture made the same comment," that color doesn't look at all like the picture". The color comes out orange on a photo, but it is beautiful copper matalic in real life. Pictures just can't do it justice.

My pal Chris just picked up his new Dark Orange and I took pics of the process. The bike is shown on the pallet and then after assembly. It was late in the day by the time the bike was together, but you should be able to get an idea of the look of the color under different lighting conditions.

Click the link to see the pics. Ignore the guy with the idiot grin, he's just the new owner!

Tommy,

I know the problem. I have been looking to see the orange myself.
My local dealer says he will not get any 07's untill spring.

Sort of hard to see what you can't see.

Well, we all know that Fred Harmon does not like Orange, so you probably won't get any 07 Orange Wing photos from him!

Leftwinger,

Nice bike and you are a good friend for sharing your friendsChris' joy.

I liked the pics, Good job.

I can't help but comment on the condition of that shop though. I have never seen worse. (Well maybe mine).

If you want to PM me your email I can send you some pics of my '07 Orange Wing. I took pics with my digital camera and the bike looked red. I then took pics with my wifes digital camera and the color looked very good. I guess I have to switch cameras when she's not looking........oops.................oh, hi dear!

I have a series of pics of the orange sitting on the dealers floor indoors. If you think you`d be interested in those, I`ll upload them and post them here, otherwise I won`t bother. Let me know.

Hey Bulldog.
Thanks for the kind words. Chris is pretty happy with the bike, but wants to put some boards on and futz with the seat and handlebars. He is a long time Yamaha Venture/Star rider and wants to get a bit closer to the cruiser type riding position.

As for the shop, it's our local Honda/Yamaha dealer. They are disorganized as hell, but they stand behind what they sell as soon as they can find it.

WOW! What a bunch of shiny, bright pictures.. Beautiful bikes !! If I had either one of those, It would be inside being polished.

In my real world, is a stock 2001 with zero accessories, all covered in dirt and dust, with a few dings on it :lol:
