shoot him in the balls why don't ya towelie. for what it's worth, I think it gives the bike a one of a kind look nobody else has, send some pics with it all assembled. did they have to sand the wind screen to get the paint to stick? I think it blends in nicely. Just for bragging rights, what did it cost ya? or did you do it yourself? My YZF 750 is in the shop gettin ready to paint to take to the Laughlin River run in Nevada. I hope it comes out as nice. Good ridin.

I've been sworn to secrecy, I got a steal of a deal. I know you are a long way from where I live, but people who live close read these pages.


I just got the seat back from the upholstery shop.

The paint job is interesting. What made you opt to have the windscreen included in the paint job design?

so what do ya think
I'm not seeing what you are getting at? He asked me my opinion and I gave it. Why should it matter to him what I think about flames? I was just giving a context that I'm not the one to ask for a detailed opinion about flames since they aren't my bag but for what it's worth the detail looks very nice and that I was glad he likes his new look.

I was thinking the same thing. I could never have my windscreen painted... I spend too much time looking through it. Even if I am not looking through it, I have a tank mount for my camcorder.

The paint job looks like a quality job, though. :thumb:

painting the windscreen

The painter thought it would look good. I can get a new one if I don't like it.
Nobody else does it, maybe I'll find out why.

The first time you hop the interstate for a medium-long ride or try a high speed run anywhere. Basically, if you ever need to really tuck. Who knows, though... maybe your riding style will allow you to keep the screen painted.

If you ever have to switch out for the reasons mentioned, there are a few graphics companies that offer stickers you can see through. (I am really sorry... I'm insanely tired, so my brain is shut down. I can't think of what they are called.) You see them on rear windows of trucks and stuff from time to time. Or for that matter, I see them on helmet visors once in a while, too. The point is, if you could get a company to match the current paint job, you can switch to a see-through screen later on, but still keep the painted look from the front side.

The tuck is the reason I couldn't do it on mine. But my aftermarket windshield is a race one with the slightly increased rise to provide some additional protection in the straights so I can actually tuck under it. The stock one wouldn't have really allowed that, IIRC, so painting it might have been a non-issue. Perhaps the same on your ride, spidie?

BTW, I didn't put this in before but I think the seat looks pretty cool. I really like the two-tone look of leather for seating :thumbs2:

Im not sure what its actually called . . . you should place those steel mesh things all around the bike, but chromally shiny to fit.

Like the whole radiator area and side-faring places, bike looks baddass, a custom piece and blindingly-shiny. But your engine that can be seen should be coverd with that 'steel mesh' stuff, cuz it kinda sticks out.

~You're wearing a nice suit, but why are you wearing tennis shoes?

whootie-hoo ???:huh:???
