    Red or Blue - "That is the question?"

    I can't decide on buying a red or blue 250! Everytime I look at them next to each other in the showroom I get a different feeling. The blue looks really pretty and brilliant, but it has several disjoint colors that do not seem to fit properly togethr. It kind of looks like an after thought on design. The red looks like it was designed by a professional with all the colors (except the rear seat) matching and flowing together. I used to have a Kawi about 5 years ago and the red was a boring red-orange that did nothing! My question is, "does the red look as brilliant in the water as it does in the showroom... or does the blue look more striking in the water?" I would like the opinions of people who made the decision and have bought one or the other. Would you buy the same color again if you had to do it over?

    Also, which one is faster (red or blue)?

    Red looks awesome going down the road. Blue looks awesome in the water.

    Gotta luv em both but word on the street is that some of the blues got a secret samurai blessing at the factory that makes 'em at least 1.258 quicker. I think I got one of 'em!

    Using words like Pretty scares me. Your sounding like a Gurly-Man that can`t make up her mind on what shoes to buy.
    Buy what you like and quit being a GURL.
    I like the RED and I think it looks best.

    After spending some hours with both colors yesterday it became obvious that the RED is much more noticable and attention getting. The blue just blends in with the water and looks like something your local law enforcement agency might use. Now if the blue was the metallic shade used on the Ninja bikes and the silver was in fact silver, instead of a dull lifeless gray, my opinion would be different. The current blue/gray color looks much better in photos than it does in real life.

    That would be IMHO right?

    I think by reading his posts and using your brain, the conclusion would be IMHO...
    We really don`t need to critique someone posts to get the message they are sending.
    Find something better to do with your down time. We would all have a more enjoyable time with less B/S on this board without this type of nonsense.
    Live and let live. He`s not correcting your post as he see`s it. Or how he thinks you should express yourself. So let it go... IMHO.
