Americade was this week in Lake George NY, just 8 miles from my home. I took a couple days off to take my bike with your paint job there. Here is just a couple times, of the many times, I parked it. Each time it was similar to this.
I parked the bike in the middle of about 50 randomly parked bikes outside of Duffy's bar. I went in to have a Ginness, and I sat by the balcony rail to watch my ride. People were winding their way through the black and red Harleys and cruisers to look at the gold one in the middle. Then, out came a camera or cell phone to photo(graph) my ride. Not just the girl, but the color matching seat, flames, etc. Some took several shots at different angles. One lady (husband nearby) said to her daughter (about 10 y.o.) " come look at the dragon", and took several pictures.
When I parked along the curb, people looked at the customs, and the completely chromed V-Rod (tank and all), the blue tribal custom painted Hybusa, the custom decked out cruisers, but took pictures of my ride.
Women would tug on their guys and vice versa and point over to my ride. They enjoyed the paint, asked about the seat. They asked if I do seats for others, and of course I don't. One person knew about leather and asked what the grade was, the stains, etc, So I removed the seat, showed him how I did it, and gave him some basic advice. I know a little of how you must feel when you do a good job. BUT, the highlight of the bike is YOUR WORK!
I passed your name on even if they didn't ask. OUTSTANDING JOB, SWEETHEART!!!
