Just turned 50,000 miles on ours. We love the unique color. Many long time wingers have never seen our color,and think it is custom. We have a few Magenta wings around here,one is a trike.AND DON'T FORGET. MAGENTA IS THE FASTEST COLOR. ;)

Don't know, but I wish I had seen the color in person before I bought my candy red one. I like it. :thumbup:

A friend and member of our local GW chapter has one. He loves it. Doesn't do much for me. Sometimes I call him Barney....he doesn't like that!

They built just so many of the PURPLE or Magenta or whatever you call it for a special reason. That color was produced for people who couldn't afford a Yellow, Black, White, etc. Honda made a mistake when they mixed that color paint so they discounted the color of that bike so they could move them.:joke::joke:

I had a '95 or '96 GL1500 "Magenta/Purple". My daughter called it a "Barney Bike". Sold it a few weeks after that! LOL...

I have one, It wasn't my first choice, but at the end of 03 when they released the 04 model the first color released was titanium, the second run was magenta, and all I could get at the time, I chromed it up and it grew on me.

when we bought ours in 04 i first wanted the titaium color but the dealer. a OLD friend of mine refused to sell me one. he said it was the same color as concrete, they had many wrecks to repair. so i bought the magneta. i few years later i was at the bank and very old women came in and said who owns that beautiful magenta bike. the one and only person that accuratly knew what color it was

And when Honda got the color mix problem straightened out they discovered it was supposed to be Flare Red, also 04 only, THE True Fastest Color. So fast it had to have the Carbon Fiber seat coverings, only with Flare Red, so the rider can stay on.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!! :thumbup:
