Scott- It seems there are a lot of people who are not big on green bikes. Honestly, I hate green Kawi Ninjas, but have had an itch for a green tank as well as an orange tank. But since I work at a prison and the inmates wear orange........I would get flamed by my coworkers.  ;D

And I thought they said that orange is the new black......

I don't know if it's been brought up yet, and I don't know how far it goes back and what it's connected to, but it was legend green bikes were bad luck. At that (early 60's when I started hearing this) time about the only bikes green were Triumph's, so I don't know if that's where it started. Or maybe there is a correlation with some early race bikes being green????

I have heard that before. The thing is.....I don't believe in things like that. Color, what a person says, walking under a ladder, black cat yada, yada yada. Does not affect my decision making. But yeah. I have heard green bikes are bad luck. Maybe that's why there are so many Kawasaki Ninjas for sale on Craigslist?  ;D
