Custom painted goldwings

I'm going to have my 05 blue wing custom painted. I'm looking for ideas on what to have done to it. Any help? Pictures would be a great help.

That's really a tough one as each person making his bike different is one of the best things about Wings. The variety keeps it new.

A variation theme of what you do for a living, your hobby or what you find interesting--with pinstrips.

One suggestion I would like to make is, have all of the lower plastic parts painted with color matched Epoxy paint to protect against chips in the paint from road debris and small rocks.

the green is custom cut vinyl (sp)
and the black is a black metalic with a clear coat metalic. the metalic realy doesn't show up to well in the pictures.

Like Pbird49 said what are your interests. As you can see in the following pictures of mine I like mythological creatures. Hope these help.

Camo.

I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks.
I was happy in the midst of dangers and inconveniences.

There pics are a year old; I've added some things since then, but then the subject is paint...

You have to decide for yourself. I am convinced that is what makes this pastime just so much fun for so many of us. How to make yours special for you, show your taste etc. To each his own. If you get too much advice, there goes your shot at individuality.
