I used to be buying and selling in my 2011 BMW S1000RR for a Avenue Glide, and I wished the particular version orange paint Harley-Davidson had for that 12 months, however there have been none left. So as a substitute of getting black like everybody else, I purchased the opposite particular shade for the 12 months: Deep Purple Flame. I preferred the colour, but it surely by no means spoke to me just like the orange does.
This bike has seen 4 main overhauls now, and every one was only a step within the path of the place I actually wished to go. Lastly I acquired to the purpose the place I knew precisely what I wished and determined to go for the gusto.
The inspiration for the paint got here from the previous adage that “Good women love dangerous boys.” So on the entrance fender and down the suitable aspect of the bike are a whole lot of actresses who’re simply painted on the bike as form of the beautiful lady subsequent door, whereas the fellows on the left aspect of the bike are all in character because the dangerous boy. It was intentional that every one the fellows can be very recognizable, whereas the ladies is perhaps much less so. If I inform somebody who one of many women are, they see it and say, “Okay…” as a result of the ladies should not in character.
After which lastly on the again is my spouse. So far as I’m involved she is the baddest chick on the planet and the paint scheme actually originated along with her on this pose on the again of the bike.
She insisted that she do the pose and that she was going to be the one painted on there, and it’s what ties all of the paint collectively as a result of the theme of the bike comes all the way in which to the again, the place this good lady (my spouse) fell in love with some jackass (me) and so she continues to be lovely and an angel, but in addition a little bit corrupted by the expertise of falling for somebody who some may think about unsavory.
