The one they had in stock on the only LRH model they had and they will get this year... jet black.

Had I had the choice, lucerne blue or white.

FWIW you could always have a tank repainted. Iíve also seen companies make Ďwrapí kits for gs1200s...I would think something like that could be done for a tiger.

When I looked into getting the tank painted in order to get it match the pearl white factory plastics it was a pricey 3 step paint that I just couldn't justify. It was only $200 cheaper than just buying all new parts. Ive seen too many wraps that look like crap, and there are a lot of angels on that tank. Im sure places do it right... I just didn't know which ones to trust. So many are fly by night here.

I really thought i would get over it and learn to like the lucerne blue. I didn't.
