Trailer graphics turned out pretty sweet!



Big props to Russ at Flipside Graphics, I think he did an excellent job. He designed it and installed it. Easy, shmeasy.

Cost is about $300 or so.

I dig it daddy-o but just be careful - That trailer now screams "Motorcycle Parts Inside" and I would hate to see anything happen

I do believe Ill have to pass then
Besides - when people see that trailer they assume a fast guy is on board - then an old fat slow guy gets out...not cool. They think Im the driver just getting the race bikes to their destination.

Thanks Wink.

Same guy did the vinyl wraps for all the bikes this year. His name is Russ Voigt and he owns Flipside Graphics. Phone is 715.848.4291 and his web site is http://www.flipsg.com. As always, tell him Ron Hix sent ya and he will hook you up.

The bikes are over at Safety First getting the bodywork mounted up this week, I'll snap some pics and post this weekend. I think they are gonna like real nice.

Yeah, I try to work it out with all my sponsors that if I send them business then they give the folks I send to them a discount. As part of that arrangement, Russ told me he would do anybody's trailer I sent to him for $300. This normally costs much more, the design time alone would cost more than $300.

He is located about 180 miles north of Blackhawk. It would be pretty easy to take off work on a Friday before one of the Blackhawk weekends and drive up to the shop and get your trailer done. Just call Russ at 715.848.4291 or email him at russ < at > flipsg.com and give him a general idea of what you want and let him come up with a pimp design. He does all the install work and everything for that price. He is very good.
