That overwhelming feeling when it is realised Tonka Yellow was not the choice of preference  :D

That photo reminds me of a famous Jackson Pollock painting called "Number 1".

My Nomad is Tonka Yellow, but I would have preferred Ortlieb Yellow better. 

Most of the various vials of touch up paint I have tried were closer to Ortlieb Yellow too.  Thus, over time my Nomad is becoming a bit more Ortlieb Yellow.  But at a very very slow rate.

My Sherpa is black, I did not want another black bike.  You can see how different the two yellows are in the photo.

Tonka yellow Thorn Nomad genuine is simply perfect for me.
For the color it has been added a hint of red i think, it's for that the Tonka yellow is very slightly orange..

But certainly one day, Sjs will decide to change for another color and it will be a difficult choice 🙂

However, if one day i decide to change my Tonka yellow for another color, it will be maybe matt green as the ex Nomad mk1, so lovely and discreet color..as well if someone know the reference color....Let me know please
