Just ordered the silver one from Fowlers of Bristol. 4894. Happy Christmas to me :-). The silver I thought would be slightly less conspicuous when camping in the woods.

I saw one fellow rider here in the US completely camo his KLR250 with camo Duck tape, even the wheels, and seat.   :745:

I agree. I think the guy with the KLR uses his bike in the woods more than onroad.

Everyone knows the white bikes are the fastest.  :153:

Actually...not true EC. Verified by the fact that the white "can" be seen. My black one coming in, however, with WOT...can't be seen. Nicknamed after me... "The Blur."  :745:

I just did the same deal as you from Fowler's Bristol and collected it on the 9th December. I went for the sword silver too. They had to order it as they only had orange or red in stock. Apparently orange is the most popular followed by red with silver the least. Personally, I think I made the right choice in colour. :) Here is a pic of all three colours together in Fowler's. The silver one is my actual bike. I took this picture on day of collection. :)

abys...

I hope the 2018 abs coming to the US is a copy of your bike. There are rumors of black / silver. The silver you bought looks VERY nice.  :152:  Lots of speculation but no one is sure yet on the 2018 color for here. Fingers crossed. Oh.......congratulations!!!
