I saw an ad, and made a couple of calls, and have recieved some stick-on flames from a company in Fla. I'll be taking some pictures (when the sun comes out) and posting them. A friend told me I couldn't be a 'real' harley rider if I didn't have some flames on my ride. They will be showing at Biketoberfest.
Good news is that if I don't like them, I can take them of with a hair drier.

Stockdale Technologies is the company, they are in Fla (although their marketing guy is out of Calif). I'll take some pics in a bit and post them. Here is a pic from their promotional literature.

Well that wasn't too hard a decision. The bike is now flame-free. But the flames did a fair job of covering the damage to the $50 helmet done on the Dragon in August.

Helmet !!!!

Daniii,
You may want to have that helmet inspected. I am of the old school that states if a helmet sustains a fall or crash it should be inpected. If you have a good scrape it probably is weakened (structurally). And if you are a person that frequents visiting the pavement you may want to consider the vulnerability a damaged helmet would offer. Your insurance should have covered that item and I would add it to your claim(along with a leather jacket ,above ankle boots or any other riding apparel you were wearing at the time. This could be 1,000 dollars . If everything is top quality. Just my opinion!

The chromedome is for show and shade. And better than nothing. I'm looking at a HD-Black Chrome replacement, but want a longer visor than they offer (shade). I'm wearing the black, (non stressed) one for my daily ride. Besides, it has the insulated ear flaps. I did stick some flames on it though.....

not ready for paint? Check out a vinyl lettering shop, they can put some nice flames on there pretty cheap. If you dont like them after awhile they can take them off, if you do like it you can get them painted on later.
