New or used...just trying to find a blue-and-white one *anywhere* around here is an impossibility.

I'm actually headed back to the Lynnwood dealer tonight to pick up my Sprint RS from a service and will be once again tormented by the beautiful birds they have on the floor.
Yep, sat on them about a month ago.

Think I'll have them run up a quote to get a new one in the "right" color shipped to Seattle, but for that I might as well wait a few months until winter has passed and the 2012s arrive.
That's the tact I'm taking as well...not like there's going to be a lot of riding going on for the next six months anyhow... Next spring, maybe they'll also have some great blowout specials on the leftover '10s and '11s. If you get the quote, though, please let me know (via PM?) what if they're able to do such a thing and how much they charge to do so (plus shipping, etc.). As much as I want the blue, I suspect it'd be more hassle and expense than it's worth.

Based on what I've learned around here I've already got my dream bike built:
Blue/White stripe, BB kit, Short TORs, Twin-T bars, Teardrop mirrors, and solo seat. Dazco I don't mean to copy, but I think you've got the ideal set-up going on.
Just about the same set-up as I'm thinking of, though I'd skip the teardrop mirrors and would throw on the pillion or a nicer two-up touring-type seat.

Hey Linkdog, thanks for the comeback. Have been up around Jasper, Alabama for about 3 months and away from my PC. Hope to see you later. Bull.

SE Red, hands down. The bags, screen, boards, seat and ABS are just bonus. I bought it because I like the color.

As I've said, I'm partial to blue & white, but I would have owned mine a month earlier if a red wasn't right next to it on the showroom floor. I kept going back and forth and dear wife didn't help matters by clearly favoring the red!
Red is my second favorite color because it really sets off my Triumph Blue & White!

Hernando and Citrus counties and occasionally down into Pasco.

Yep, I do, and I'm familiar with 48 through Floral City. Next time you're headed this way it would be nice to compare notes. I'm heading back to NC on Monday, and then heading to South America for 10 days on business. I'll be back here on the 4th though.
