Yeah, I did not much like the 2012 Wing's looks either, so I searched long and hard, and found a brand new, in the crate, previous model (and saved about $6K). I would have preferred a burgundy color like the dark reds that Honda used in 2009 and 2010, but silver was my second choice. As any chance of obtaining brand new previous models dwindles down, everyone will be buying the new cosmetic styling of the 2012 and newer bikes. We will all get used to them, and that will be that. I am glad you got a color that suits, and agree that blue and silver go really well together. Have many safe and happy miles on it.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
