Wow, what a color

I was just at the HD dealership here in Thornton to register for the Toy Run. A salesman was polishing a new bike and I was blown away by the color. It was orange metallic. The official name was Tequila Sunrise. If I didn't like my bike so much, I would seriously think about this one. The wife said "just keep on walking". Sully

Is that the high country Harley-Davidson? I just went by there yesterday. What is the other one called about 20 miles or so north at the crossroads Boulevard?

Yup, my favorite color for sure. Amazing how that color just comes to life in sunlight.

I googled it because I didn't remember the color. 2012 HARLEY TEQUILA SUNRISE STREET GLIDE photo, picture, image on Use.com
I recall it now, just like with my bikes color (Merlot Sunglo) pictures don't do it any justice.

That is friggin amazing! Local dealer had a street glide in that combo .... Wow! The RKC is beautiful in that color.

Definitely a love it or hate it kind of thing and also not all HDs look good in that combo. Local dealer had a Fatboy in the Tequilla Sunrise and it just didn't work for me.

My wife says that every time we stroll past Victoria Secret at the mall. Dry hump one mannequin and right away you have a "problem"..... freaken labels society has to place on people.

I LOVE the metallic green they have now. Its cross between a 1970s dune buggy and a bass boat.

I was at the local dealership this spring and there was an older guy and his VERY young and EXTREMELY well hootered wife standing next me as I drooled over the high end Ultras. He said to her "Just pick the color you want honey". She pointed and said "I want that one baby" and they bought it. Tequila Sunrise.

I need to find a sugar mama.
