New Guy from Tejas

Post by veriest1 »

I picked up my 07 earlier this week and was directed to this forum from our local Texas forums.

Glad to be here. Bike has been a blast so far. :D

Cuz most all '07's are Black Cheery, the only year they used that colour...... now iff'n ya said it had no clutch lever (rarer AE model), it woulda been Cerulean Blue. Wheatie had ya pegged for the A model, 'cuz you likely woulda said so if you had the AE.... Wheatie for the win!

Oh yeah, welcome aboard, enjoy the sandbox!!

Interesting. I probably would have still said the exact same thing but I can see the logic.

Welcome from south Louisiana. You've got quite the stable of motorcycles, there. Hope you enjoy your FJR.

It was a subtle blue, perhaps one could call it Cerulean Silver, basically a silver with a hint of blue. It distinguished itself from the Gen1 silver. Unique to AE until I think '09 when they were black. Discontinued here, was it 2010 or 2011, can't remember....

09 and possibly 08 AE Titanium Metallic. The most exclusive color. :D

I've been casually shopping for "the right one" for a while. I've been enjoying it a lot so far.

I rode KJ's 2009 for 100 yards at CFR2010. It was black, same as the A... titanium optional?

Pretty sure. Tried to access the matrix on the other sandbox but the link wouldn't work. Maybe was the US color. But mine and others I've seen have been Titanium. :)

In the link, try deleting "forum/" from the link for older threads.... I saved the .pdf.
That matrix does say Titanium/Liquid Silver, which also was the colour for 2010/11 A models, indicates AE was discontinued for 2010.
