All done (almost)
« on: May 17, 2017, 07:27:04 PM »
Other than a change of color, thinking burnt orange with the same black accessories, I'm pretty much done with mine atleast for this year.. heading to Congers NY this summer so I'll be dropping in to see Ivan and getting a little flash done.. I think it turned out decent, pretty much the way I pictured it in my head.. that's not saying much.. lol .. I hope you guys like it ..    :raider: :raider: :raider:

      Looking Good, but I wouldn't say 'ALL Done'. That's what I said few years ago and I am still finding ways to spend money on the bike.

      As a former silver Raider rider I have to say the red one gets more compliments.  Personally I have a teal that I like a lot but I'm going to leave it red for now.  If orange is your color I say go for it.  It's YOUR ride.

      Agreed.. the red one belongs to a friend and he does get alot of compliments and I really like the color.. most people don't realize that they are the same bikes when we're out until they really start looking at them.. I couldn't pass on the silver one because of the deal.. could have been pink but for all I cared, 2012 for $6000 out the door with only 2300 kms, I would have been nuts.. the silver looks nice but I want something to catch your eye.. just my opinion

      I like the silver. 

      But you're never "done".

      I'd rather die on a motorcycle than live without one.

      Loving the way your silver looks, brother. These silver Raiders are pretty. Did you get the fairing painted or vinyl wrapped?

      I got the 3M vinyl metallic silver and it's a really close match; almost perfect.

      Well done. You've pretty much done everything I want to do to my silver Raider.  :congrats: :awesome: :goodjob:

      Actually bIKEr42lue.. I painted it myself.. the closest match I got was Toyota pearl metallic, which was so close I couldn't tell the difference.. had a buddy at a local body shop clear coat the fairing, chin scoop and fender for $50.. turned out pretty decent I think
