I have a 2012 blue Goldwing and looking to do some customizing. I know I want to replace the black on the bags and rear with the same silver as on the fairing. Any other ideas? I'm not very creative and wanted to see some pictures or get some ideas from the group before going to my paint guy.

DON'T listen the Fossil. Bling is the thing. Check out our sponsor Wing Stuff they got lots of Bling for the Wing.

May I suggest a visit here: http://www.hondaofrussellville.com/ they have custom painted 2013 1800s.

You could always put some Super Bowl 47 world champions stickers on the saddle bags, that always makes anything look good

I went with accessories and lighting since the 2012 is very easily setup for plug and play harnesses.

As for painting it, I am leaving the basic design alone but planning on having a small airbrush design done on the bags that depicts the U.S. Flag mural'd with one of the warships I served on as a dedication to everyone who served..

Just remember the blacked out portions are also textured, so would require some special treatment if not special paint to adhere properly. I've always been a fan of airbrush work but remember not everyone's tastes run the same directions. This is what I had my buddy do on my Vulcan (he's very talented with an airbrush)

I was thinking along the red portion of the saddle bags... maybe something along the trunk sides...

BTW, stupid question, how do I add images in my post like you did where it shows a thumbnail that can be clicked to show larger sized image?

Custom paint

You could always do something completely different....



Ten days and two air brushes and 25 grams of blue pearl on a red base. Anything's possible!
