Black is the presence of all colors in the spectrum, right? (at least that's what an art teacher told me a loooong time ago... ) So, a black bike is best because it's really showing off every color all at the same time!

HA only if you like the darkside. White is the color of pure light and blue is hue that is true. Blue and White! Sounds like Danny Kay in the Court Jester;

Greetings,

Why settle for what Triumph likes... Paint comes in every color.

I like the Blue & White, but my 07 America has those colors. For my 2011 bird I went for the White & Blue with the Red stripe. Looks cool, but I'll never figure out why the Triumph calls the bike blue on the title.

Congrats Jason - for some reason the photos are just showing up as little red squares with crosses in them so I can't see them. What colour did you get?
Mine is Cranberry Red and black - beautiful!
cheers

Hi hagatha;
Congratulations on your colorur's bike. Even when it's not exactly what I would do, I do recognize your courage to go beyond most of us. Well done mate!

Hi Humppy;

Where did you buy the tank badges? What bike does it belong to? How much did you pay for them? Thank you.
