It was 55 here in "Casino City" also. My buddy at work and I both had the same idea and went home at lunch to get our bikes! Low 30's tommorow morning but I think I'll brave it . It's only 20 minutes to work. I wear a heavy leather jacket and chaps so it isn't too bad. Chaps are the best f*****g investment I ever made(next to the new scoot). The only reason you feel so cold is because you keep looking at that big ol' polar bear up on that roof!!!!!!
Hey sheepboy, that's so cool that you did your own paint job. Wish I could do my own. I gave my parts to a guy who was supposed to paint them and put ghost flames on them, that never happened, he had my parts for almost a year! Finally I just started hounding him all the time until he gave them back to me, painted solid, hell I could have done that I guess that's what happens when you exchange favors! My hubby put dual exhaust on his truck and in return he was supposed to do my tanks! I think I got gyped.
Yeah baby, ya got hosed. These days I just paint mostly for people I know, usually trading paintwork for parts. (I choose my friends carefully) A year though is a little long. The last bike I painted was a softail that I even had to take apart and the turnaround was in a week, hey I love painting! Hope you get your ghost flames eventually, they look cool.
