A Goldwing with a Story
Curtis Palmore attended
Wing Ding 33 in Knoxville this year with a mission in mind. It seems that he
wanted to replace his beautifully muraled 1500 Goldwing with something a
little newer. It was at Wing Ding 33 where a new 2012 Goldwing caught his
eye. The Honda dealer that brought it to the event had repainted the
bike from its factory tri-color scheme to a solid factory blue.
Although the dealer hadn't considered selling the bike at Wing Ding, Curtis
"persuaded" him to separate himself from it.
The new 2012 shape lent itself into placing the
murals that Curtis had in mind. Besides, three rows over from where the new
bike was parked was Chris Cruz a artisan known for his superb artwork.
Chris had done the murals on Curtis's 1500 and this was an opportunity that
couldn't be passed up.
Eight weeks later, on September 8, 2011 Curtis rolled
his bike out of Chris's shop and headed home - and to a kick tire our
chapter was having that evening. Below are the images on his bike and
trailer. Click on them to expand them. Unfortunately the clear coat is
so nicely done that it generated a reflection when the photos were taken.
