    Official Sighting Thread

    I did a search and noticed that there isn't ONE thread dedicated to the sighting of other Blackbirds in the wild; there are a bunch of threads started then they die off. If I'm incorrect, please let me know. I don't want to revive an old thread for sightings, especially when those sightings are in other regions. So, lets start a fresh thread for sightings of Blackbirds no matter where they are.

    I'll go first.

    I was at a KMFDM show at The House of Blues in New Orleans this past evening (7 Nov) and on the way home we stopped at a gas station in Slidell on Gause Blvd. On the way out, I spotted a Blackbird in the back of a red pickup. The bike looked great, it was blue and silver, kinda like the Redbull colors and it's 03 year bike. I spoke to the guy, he had his girl there, for only a minute or so. I didn't get his name. If you see this post, what up dude!

    On the Snowy Ride last weekend and found two '02 Blackbirds (blue and black) at Charlotte's Pass Lookout. One was pretty stock (like mine), the other was nicely mod-ed. I didn't get a pic

    Re: Official Sighting Thread

    come to think of it...the only one I've ever seen in person; is the one I bought last month

    ...hmmm, I kinda find that hard to believe....I've been looking for a year now, and there had to be one or two in the bike parking at last years Red Bull Indianapolis GP - Indianapolis Motor Speedway but I didn't see them
    where can I get some of that iron ball radar absorbing heat dissipating paint

    Re: Official Sighting Thread

    Saw a nice bird about a week or so near Veendam, close to the industrial area, on the N33.
    Don't suppose it was one of you guys?
    A black Blackbird is called a Blackbird, a red one a Redbird, a blue one a Bluebird and a silver one a Silverbird.
    And a titanium one? A̶ ̶T̶i̶t̶b̶i̶r̶d̶?̶ A Ti Bird ofcourse!
