Hi all, I can't decide out of the Satin or Gloss Black.....does anyone know which color has been the best seller?
I think this post says it all.Get the color that YOU like; do t worry about what anyone else likes or has bought.
Just remember to maintain it, keep it clean, and keep metal away from whatever color bike you get. The little things will make a difference here: use a single key in the ignition when riding instead of a ring, keep belt buckles covered when riding (if used), keep metal from jackets (zippers, pocket zips, toggles, etc.) covered and away from bike when riding, try to keep things off direct access to areas of the bike with paint exposed (tank and tail), and keep,standing dirt off all surfaces.
Remember that with gloss, YES you ARE going to get small swirl areas in the paint surface. But, these can be sorted out with wax and minor upkeep. Wash with a bucket and s cap of soap, rinse with clean water, then 10 minute on/off wax and you are DONE.
With gloss you DO HAVE the capability to wash and wax the bike "when YOU want to" in an effort to restore the paint.
With matte, you DO NOT HAVE the same options when riding. It is "much more difficult to maintain" while riding and owning, and a lot more trouble when something needs to be buffed out or resurfaced.
To me........ The MATTE looks super-cool. However, it is way too much work to maintain for me. That's the reason I did not get my last entice purchase in the matte paint; same situation just a bigger vehicle.
At the end of the day, get what "makes YOU happy" and what YOU are comfortable with owning and maintaining.
PS - I bought the "Velocity Red" because it is really rare where I am and somewhat rare for other street models as well.
My 750 is the denim (flat) black but I didn't have a choice. I purchased the first one the dealer received (I'd been waiting for over six months) and I'm painting it anyway. Not sure of what color yet but the tank is going to be used for a bobber project because it's an awesome shape for a bobber. The actual 750 will be a completely custom chopper with a peanut tank and it will be predominately turquoise with copper plating as opposed to chrome plating. In addtition it will have red, white, blue and copper foil graphics and whatever pin-striping I eventually decide on.Hi all, I can't decide out of the Satin or Gloss Black.....does anyone know which color has been the best seller?
