Jis i'm so pissed!

My bike is like 3 months old and allready the other day I noticed a chip on my nose cone. NOw last night I saw a mother %$&* deep/visible/uglu chip right on my tank.. ON TOP OF MY TANK!!!!

Might have happened sunday when I went on a breakfast run. Rock might have ricoshayed off my leather jacket on to my tank, it right next to the gas cap. Is there any way i can have it fixed without reepainting the whole tank? Will touch up paint work? (its down to the metal). Do the dealers stock touch up paint?

*sigh*

I used to get mad over paint chips, but then I realized if I'm going to ride, it's going to happen. I just scepted it.

Yep, it's part of the game.....the only way not to have chips is to leave the bike in the garage.....

You can usually get any paint shop to mix you up some touch-up paint and then apply it with the ripped end of a paper match. I have a black bike and black car so I use the touch-up paint from pontiac and it matches my bike perfectly.

Don't sweat. The only way you can keep your bike in pristine condition is to keep it in the garage inside a glass cage - now why would you do that. Go out, ride and forget about paint chips.:D

you're missing the whole point here!

I got a few the other day when I went through a recently paved highway... that's fine, it was a great ride!:D[8D]:D
