Yup I ordered yellow too, the idea was it's easier to see....more people-drivers may see me and avoid hitting me then a silver/black combo. Who knows??

Also figure that I'll probably get mine next spring...that way I won't get any hopes up for a fall ride.

I ordered either lol lol, It was put to me simple. they will make 600 spyders, x amount in one color, and x in another. Then they will look at dealer lists and start allocating, starting with order time in and then color. When they come to my dealer and say "hmmm we have x amount of yellow and only a few silver, and we have hard orders for silver, and the order says "any" for the color,, well they will ship out yellow and visa versa.

bottom line though, I dont want to have to wait because they dont have enough of the color I ordered left when they get to me so I have to wait for the next batch. So ship me what you have, If I get Yellow BONUS!!!!!! if I get silver,,, It will be painted metalic candy apple red,,,, yes, with a black webbing custom painted on the front cover hehehehe

you all were aware of this right???? they are making x amount of each color, THEN taking your already filled paper work and matching it to a spyder of that color. here is a perfect example:

400 yellow 200 silver. built, painted ready to ship. they take the paperwork, look at it,,,, and find out they have 450 yellow ordered, 400 will get yellow,,, 50 will wait for the next shipment. If Im in that group of 50, they can turn and say wait, here is an "any" pack that silver one on up and ship it!!!

now you all knew this,,,,,,, right,,,,,

I ordered silver at first until I saw them both next to each other, and I just couldn't take my eyes off of the yellow one. So I'm getting a yellow one now. I also like that yellow is extemely visible! I also have all silver cars so I think yellow would be a nice change!

I've heard the rumor that the Yellow would be a bit more $$$ . My dealer didn't know anything about a price difference based on color selection. Their price is a flat $14,999.00, either color and still is.

I believe it is $350 more for the yellow where it is a metalic paint.

I ordered a yellow one for high-visability.
The U.S. Army used the same black-yellow paint scheme on there NHRA pro stock bikes.

I did see another U.S. Army streetbike with a closer paint scheme than the pro stock bikes.
Will the yellow Spyders arriving around the Army communities get more attention Time will tell.

My husband ordered yellow and I ordered silver. I would have really liked to have seen it in red though. I wonder how much for a paint job?

I just wish the Yellow was more like the Velocity Yellow on the Corvette. Much brighter than the Milennium yellow which by the way is the same name used for that dull corvette color before the Velocity was introduced mid-year.
