Default Anybody seen/buy new Tequila-Sunrise/HD Orange Baggers?

Just wondering if any of ya'll had seen the 2012 "creamsicle" color of Tequila-Sunrise/HD Orange on a bagger yet.

My dealer will have that, and a Denim Black, in next Monday and i will take ownership of one or the other.

I have seen the official HD pictures, but haven't seen any user or real-life pics. I am curious how the orange looks in direct sunlight (I have heard the paint really pops outside).

If it is too orange, it looks like fast, flat black for me.

Cheers : )

*Edit: I found a dealer that had a real-world inventory pic.

Yes I have we took the tour at the York Pa plant Monday. And I like the Tequila-Sunrise color but the HD Orange is not for me. There is a cool metallic flake in the T-S but I'm not a two tone person I like solid colors. The other three people with me felt the same way. Good luck with your choice. We got to see it in the show room out front and on the assembly line in various states of assembly from pieces to complete bikes.

I've got a TS FLHXSE. I can attest to its 'chameleon' color changes. Sometimes the flakes are blue, or gold, or red, or greenish....it really does pop in the sun!

I've go nothing on the HD Orange. Saw that online on a Deluxe, and thought it was kinda cool. A nice change from the typical two-tone color combos.

Sweet. I can't wait to see it on a Street Glide, in person.

This is the one that Hannum's HD in PA has on their showroom.



The colors look pretty sweet. The off-set from the HD Orange on the tank logo and tour-bag skirt -- to the Tequila-Sunrise on the rest of the bike -- is not that apparent. I am guessing the difference between the two, especially the metal flake, is more pronounced in direct light.

Man, I am jonesing to see this badness in person.

*edit: thanks again to Hannum's for your pic -- I didn't shoot the image.
