    At Bowkers in Preston, I’ve bought it blind so don’t even know how it looks. Waiting on top box to be sprayed the same colour and a pair of led fog light spotties are being fitted. Thoughts?

    Lupin was the first colour to be dropped by BMW for good reason. I’ve had a couple of grey ones, one I sold got sprayed Ferrari blood red with mustard text.

    Excuse me ol' boy , I think you'll find that the Granite grey was the first colour dropped by BMW, on account of it being a bit of a slowcoach y'see. toodle pip

    Defiantly the Lupin first. Nice lid, just got the C4 in white and red, with SC1 A. Will put on first time when collecting the Mighty Bronzed.

    Lupin was replaced with the found in lost property and brushed up parts white and grey one. Awful

    I saw this colour in Bahnstormers Alton last Monday and, although I was hoping to see the all black version, quite liked this colour. But not as much as mine :)

    Whatever the colour the RS is a great bike, however beauty is in the eye of the beholder, for me the granite grey is the colour scheme that best suits the bike !!

    I saw an RT at Blade BMW when the exclusive first came out and it did look better in the flesh. It's a funny old world...when I bought my GS I wanted the Thunder grey, but BM stopped it the year I bought mine. Now I quite fancy the Lupin blue, but the little german tinkers have stopped that too. It might just have to be black....it's a good job I like cleaning my bikes:rolleyes:

    Wise choice as you'll never have to wash it.

    Ever done the A30 through Cornwall at 05:00 on a August sunny Sunday. Let’s say at speeds called ‘making progress’. That’s why the bike is this colour.
