As for comparing them to Honda cars....could you be more boring ?
I'm well aware of the 'history', so what?
And You're right, I have NO appreciation for that past nor that decade, why live in the past?
BTW, did I hurt yer wittle feewings?
From a modern marketing standpoint, it's crap.
You have your taste, and I mine. Mine is better.

One cool & froody dude who knows where his towel is!

No need to get out of line gentlemen for a totally subjective matter. Those of us who like this colour scheme, do not need to persuade others that it is anything else than a .... nice colour scheme. Yes, it represents something to many, but definitely not to all.

Those of us that do not like the colour scheme, do not need to persuade others that it is a crap. Simply do not buy it....

And for those that they like the bike but hate the colour scheme, there are plenty of paint shops that will be happy to take your money and paint you bike in any colour scheme you would like....

See? everyone can be happy.....

I would say mature people don't need to push their ideas onto others really, tastes are subjective so someone thinking they are right says it all !


I went for a Spanish company decals, but nowadays I prefer the not to see stock decals/colours and not be like all the other ATs out there, it can be a pain to
apply these, but I really think that's nicer designs for everyone that wants something different and not pay for a full paint !

I had been dragging my feet about getting a 30th anniversary bike because I thought Honda would carry the paint scheme over to 2019. When I learned they didnt, I found one of the last 2018 Adventure Sports with DCT in my area. Thankfully is was on sale and purchased in 5 minutes over the phone. Love this color scheme, it reminds me of my old RC30.

I like my red, white, & blue 2019 AT. When I tested the gray one I also tested a BMW 800 that looked a lot like it, as did the VFR1200, Multistrada (can't remember the year) and many other bikes on the floor. I told the dealership to prep the RW&B model because I like the way it looked better.

Besides, I don't want to be stealth in the mountains when I ride. If I go down I want to be found. ;-)

IBA #48143
Current Rides:
2019 AT Manual in Patriotic paint scheme
2019 HD Low Rider

Past rides:
Too many or too old to remember, but close to 40 of them.

That what the Garmin InReach is for

I am personally not a fan of the red/white/blue scheme and hate the gold wheels on any color scheme, but It is all personal preference for sure and everyone has their own

Generally, I tend to prefer more subtle colours, but those ATAS white and blue shades are so bright you can's easily pass them....
I have the Tr color and I absoloutly Love the color and I am going to wait for the 2020 VFR which is coming in the same tricolor to get one.
By the way you can order complete tri color Vinyl , precut for AT , for less than $ 120 shipped , you can easily find them on eBay or Amazon.

same here, I got the last 18 they had also, well last AT all togather. IT was priced about 1k more than yours in Northern Alabama, but I still love it. Prices out west i've saw them upwards of 20k.
