I have a 93 that had the PO's Names on it. Took them off and can still see them at the right angle. Is is still cool to have mine and my wife's name on the trunk?
Don't want to be uncool. Bad enough the Harley Guys stopped waving after selling my V star>>>

I cant offer how to get the ghost names off , perhaps someone on here can help with that .

Is it cool or not ? I dont see a problem about it . Its yours and if you want your names on it , I say go for it . This may hide the other names from showing .



If the Harley guys dont want to wave to a fellow rider, I say to heck with them . Its not worth the worry of what they think . You are out on the road enjoying the same breeze they feel . Though your breeze sounds like the whisper of wind thru the pines and theres likely sounds like a full on thunderstorm . :ROFL:

It's all about impressing those harley guys, huh?

Why bother.

The cool thing is to ride your own ride and screw what anyone else thinks.
paint what you want to on it...... it's YOUR bike.

You probably shouldn't look to us to tell you what's cool,
we're just a bunch of old dudes that ride goldwings.

Heck, one of us even wears a thong on his head!

Actually I think it's kewl to have your moniker on the bike.... it shows its yours.... but painting your name on it... and the difficulty removing it can lessen it's resale value. Not an issue if your gonna keep it forever and ever.... but we seldom do.



We have found that custom ordered vinyl stickers work much better.



But as one or many have said.... it's yours... do what you want!

Cool? ...Harley Guy's? >>> Come-on, Man! ;)

Iwas out riding around earlier enjoying this beautiful cold, wet weather. There was enough waving going on to know who was enjoying it and who wasn't I suppose.. Let it get cold and wet out... :cool:

I'm comfortable in the stuff myself. So are others. We know who we are. We don't rub it onto nobody who don't want it. They wouldn't understand riding in it by choice anyway. Riding all year long is "cool". Make that happen and you're doing something many of us cannot do and would envy you for doing it.

Can't say much about the name stuff. Not my thing though.

:shock::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:But......but........I ain't old!! :badgrin:

I do agree withNorton, Just like he said, ride your own ride and who cares what anyone thinks! When they start paying for your bike, then maybe they would have a say. Until you start seeing a check from them..........:raspberry:

yeah i went to look at a bike awhile back that someone had pinstriped their names on it would have been ok it it matched my name and my wifes but it didnt lol

even if you buzz it off you'll still see the lettering 3m makes a cutting compound but i still think at a angle you'll still se the diffrence and the outline of the words maybe cover up the area with a little mural or something like that?

My favorite was on the back of a 1200. The left saddle bag said "His", right side said "Hers", and the trunk said "Ours". The bike was black with gold painted pinstriping done very tastefully, and the words in a script that matched the pinstriping well. Looked good to me...

I think that it's a lot cooler to get the lady to wear the thong with your initials on itbecuase ther is'nt enough room for your hole name.:cool:But it's your bike cools what makes you happy with it if other people don't like it let them buy the next one bet there input stops.

It depends on you. I don't think names on the bike are cool, nor stuffed animals on the trunk either for that matter. But what I like isn't germane, what's important is what the owner likes. Same for the general public or other riders. I have a Gadsden 'Don't tread on me' flag on the back of my bike and a NRA decal too. I don't care what anyone else thinks about it. It does say something about me but it's something you'd know if you talked to me for a few minutes anyway. It pleases me.

So go with what you like and let the world go hang.:action:

You will never be cool to the Harley crowd on a Geri Cherry no matter what you stick on it.

Wow! That got some emotion going:applause: I was just saying since I had a '93 with names on the back, I wanted to see if it was still in style to have names. If I was worried about Harley Guys I would have one. Besides, It is paid for.
I am the kind of guy if everyone is going one way I go another.
I am not out to impress anyone, just saying that I noticed that I get the "Here comes a moped" look from them.
I recently met a GWRRA member and I asked about the non waving Harley guys. He said " You would be mad too if you paid all that money and your bike rode like that!.

So I am off to the Vinyl Graphics guy to make me some nice GOLD names for the back. I might even post some pics!!
Thanks

Nice Bike Scott!

When I was out riding one day I had stopped for a drink. A guy on a HD drove up and when he got off his bike he was shaking his arms like they were hurting, I asked if HD shook that much that it hurt his arms, he looked at me sternly and asked "Do you have a problem with Harley's" I said No, I don't own one so I have no Problems at all..... Have a nice day.....

Thanks,
I saw this bike in Tennessee on Craigslist and told him I wanted it. Went the next day and drove it back 250 miles. Never drove a bike that big. Leg got cramps at the lights:(
I did nothing to it but service it. The PO bought all that chrome!!
With 80,000 miles it has scratches, etc but she rides like a Cadillac :action:

Come on Fall.. ready for those leaves to change!!
