What Should I Do? Touch Up Paint?

A few weeks ago, I installed my new Delkevic pipes, and had to take off my tail section. To my surprise, after taking off the passenger grab handle, I noticed the paint had been rubbed off because of the rubber gasket. I planned on getting/making some passenger grab handle covers, but I'm a little bummed now because it looks like I might have to do some additional painting. What would you guys do? Any suggestions of how to repaint or cover the affected area?

Sell the bike and post pictures of your 19 year old sister in a bikini.

Or

A decent auto paint shop will be able to supply touch-up paint to the Honda paint code (on the fame under the seat) in a brush or small spray can. You'll be able to mask as required and tidy up that scar.

Or if you know someone handy with a airbrush and you supply the paint they should be able to clean it up real good.

Either option feel free to post those bikini pictures ........

I actually considered going black in the future whenever my paint gets real crappy...probably won't happen though. I really dig blacked out bikes...but the red is so purdy!

Nice looking bike Google! Dig the wheels, what are they? Do they match the red paint or are they a bit darker?

When did you switch up the wheels g00gl3it? I remember your posts of the colors of the wheels but i guess i obviously missed that they were not the stockers. Anyways they look great, oh how much did those wheels cost before and including powdercoat?
