Was at the dealer yesterday scheduling my 600 mile service. Guy in the showroom was drooling over an XR in black. Told him to check my pewter color in the parking lot. When I left the showroom he had the sales guy hunting for an XR in "silver". Looks better in person than the picture. IMHO:) Will upload the full bike later today.

Heck, in the lineup - Orange is fastest ('cept for maybe Benny's black anomaly); Black is most sinister; and Silver is the "Touring" model. All the bags, highway guards, and windshields are only supposed to be hung on the silver bikes.

:D

It does look good in pewter but the name is funny to say. Whats with this 600mile check up? I at 842 in my week of owning mine and they never mentioned a 5-600 maint nor does the owners manual but im bringing mine in on friday so I guess its no big deal anymore. But yea the "silver" does look good

dude!

I just can't bring myself to say "pewter-denim"....hell, sayin' it outloud in most of the places I go will get you a chipped tooth!

I'd stick with callin' it silver....of course that ain't gonna make it as fast as the black and not even close to orange speed [:)].

600 mile check was a misquote from past bikes. First service is 1,000 miles in my owners manual. You've only got 842 miles in a week?:)

Orange is only fastest in straight lines..when it comes to turns..nothing can beat a mean black XR!

the silver-pewter jeans color is cool IMHO :)

We're GUYS, right???? (excuse me for the girls in the house)
MY Road King is BLUE, not Cobalt
My XLS is Black, not Midnight Stealth Pearl
My XR is Orange, not Mirage Orange Pearl.
Your XR is Silver!!!!!! I dont know what a Pewter is.
I know what a Pooter is, however, and it's not suitable for conversation here. And I know what color a Pooter is and it wouldn't look pretty on a bike. And as for denim....well, that's blue.

I'll watch your back!

Hey Bill,

I think you and I are the only two PD's in this group. I'm starting to see more XR's around here and they're all orange. Talk about all looking the same!

Jealousy Bill, just envious of us.

I'm gonna still go to the same beers joints so it'll have to be flat silver. I agree with Magoo, pewter denium, can cause a chipped tooth. Maybe that color should be added to the Southern ass kicking list on this site. It is a differant color and Borat is a differant movie. I don't like the demun(flat colors) that Harley has. Looks like they forgot to sand and clear coat. Give me shiney. :oops: Later,

Mine's silver. Pewter Denim is too nancyboy for my liking. Still haven't seen another one (any colour) in 4000 miles.

The first one I rode was in Taiwan and it was Pewter Denim. When I got back here and showed pictures, people asked what color it was and I answered with the dreaded P D.
I got blank stares so I quickly started saying "Flat Silver", and bought an orange one
