Not my favorite color, but great photos and a good looking FJR nonetheless.

What kind of camera are you using?

Damir, Mine is red but I do believe yours is my second favorite color! Silver, but in the different lighting looks like an off white. Real pretty!!! And I never use that word at my age. Yours is a head turner. I'm trying to remember if that color was available in the US?

"Silver Arrow" what a sharp looking machine 😉

Light colors make the bike look bigger, my wish list for FJR colors; Lamborghini (or Acura NSX) pearl orange, yellow, light blue or white.

Agreed, of all colors Yamaha ever painted FJR, '14 light red and '17 silver are the ones I like the most. Matte Silver really shines, and the contrast between the lights and shadows is an eye candy, every detail is very revealing and a pleasure to watch, kind of like a beautiful lady in a tight white outfit 😜
