Nice color, but a little too brown for me. I could see how it will work for a lot of folks, though. Both the Black Ice/Blue Ice and Rootbeer are very sharp paint jobs. Probably some of the best I've seen on production bikes.

I order an Ultra Classic Light Candy dark Candy Rootbeer in August. It arrived Friday at the Dealer. Dealer is installing chrome legs, stage 1 and Monster Ovals. I will pick it up next week and then install all the chrome. First ride will be at Bike Week Feb 28th. Looking forward to it.

Looking at that color, I have to wonder if it's a Sherwin-Williams, Planet Color paint. I haven't looked at them side by side, but there is a standard formula in the Planet Color book that looks the same.

If you can't buy the bike in that color, buy any bike, and paint it that color.

awesome color in person. Online that color just blows!!! Hate when they can't reproduce the color properly. It looks so flat online.

In person it just looks like a custom paint job.

I just saw a SG in the rootbeer color this weekend. Wow! I'm not even a brown kinda guy. Looks alot like the SE color from last year. I think I'd would even have liked it better if they had black with the light rootbeer, but it sure did look good. Looked great with the gold trim on it too.
