As a Browns fan living in Cleveland, I agree with you 100%.I like the look of it but I wouldn't want it for myself living where I live. This here is Steelers country, and I'm not much of a football fan. Something about the idea of owning a bike all decked out in Pittsburgh Steelers colors when I don't follow the team doesn't sit right with me.
From Wikipedia "Cadmium pigments are a class of pigments that have cadmium as one of the chemical components. Most of cadmium produced worldwide is used in the production of nickel-cadmium batteries, but about half the remaining consumption, which is about 2,000 tons annually, is used to produce colored cadmium pigments. The principal pigments are a family of yellow/orange/red cadmium sulfides and sulfoselenides as well as compounds with metals other than Cd."Cadmium sulfide is a yellow artists pigment
I'm still searching for the Cad Y-CCT.Cadmium, in the oil paint world, implies a really strong pigment... probably using Cadmium to augment the color... there's Cad Yellow; Cad Red and others. Go to an art supply store and look at the paints... the Cad based paints are really strong, vibrant colors.
Very expensive usually so it's probably "in the name only". Hard to imagine Yamaha using a real Cad Yellow Paint.
