It really caught my eye at the dealership.

Once upon a time (about 40 years ago) a guy down the street from me had a super modified he raced at Englwood Speedway, and it was this color. Lime gold.

Well, I see Kawaski won't let me link to the photo.http://www.kawasaki.com/Products/Motorcycles.aspx

I personally think it is ugly as sin. It is almost exactly the same color Honda had on the VTX1300 last year and it was ugly then.

I'm sure it looks better in person.
Not really feelin' the love... some colors work on some vehicles and not others.

Orange works on a Vette, Mustang, some pickups, and a Charger if it's got the Stars & Bars on the roof :biggrin:

Orange doesn't work on a Ferrari.

Well, I used to commonly hear this expression:

"Now, there's a color that could only look good on a Porsche."

The color looks better in person, I think. It's just a little darker than the color used on Volkswagens.

Yes and no for me. I think with some graphics on the paint it could work.

Shades of American Graffiti. Didn't they describe the color of his rod as a cross between **** yellow and snot green? Still it doesn't really strike me as ugly just not lovely. Maybe in person. On the other hand if I was given a bike that color I surely would NOT turn it down!

I liked that Honda green gold it seemed to change color in the light this green on the Custom looks better in the picture than in person. JMO

No thanks. I like the Kawi green on the sportbikes, but green Vulcan just doesn't work IMO.
