We listened to you and added some really cool ways to show your Victory Pride. VicStickz are ready-to-go graphics that are In-Stock for immediate FREE shipment. Made from the same ultra-high quality laminated air-egress vinyl as our wraps. These stickers look great, last like gangbusters, yet can still be removed without a trace if needed.
Choose from 3 OEM-style Victory tribute logos and 7 exclusive “TTWFO” phrases available only right here – all in a variety of sizes and colors. Check out the VicStickz page now at http://vicwrapz.com/vicstickz/
My new friend Charles Robinson has graciously agreed to help promote VicWrapz at the 77th annual Sturgis South Dakota Bike Rally – this nation’s largest biker event – being held August 4th through the 13th this year. Charles and his wife Jennifer are out there in the Badlands right now showing off a “Blaze” design VicWrap on their pearl white and supersteel gray Victory Cross Country Tour. Look at the pics and note how the graphic fits over the factory 2-tone paintjob, lining up quite nicely despite being intended for only solid colored bikes. Also note the color-coordinated Air Force emblem on the front fairing – something you won’t see mentioned on the website but typical of the custom extras we can provide by special request. We can coordinate emblems for any military or law enforcement branches as well as tribute and memorial graphics for your promotional or parade bike. Don’t be afraid to ask:)
Here are a couple pics of Charles’ bike in the region, with more to come. If you like this look, jump over to the Home Page and try out a color combination on the V.I.C. that would look BADLANDS on YOUR bike!
I get a lot of questions from customers faced with the sobering prospect of having to get their graphics from the box to the bike – you know, the actual “hands-on” part. Some go along just fine, needing little if any supervision, while others seem stymied from the beginning. One misconception that seems universal is the notion of when to apply heat and how much heat to use. The answer is – seldom and slightly. Most of the application needs NO heat, and trying to use it in excess or at the wrong time can cause as many problems as it fixes. Once the vinyl has been heated, even a little, it changes to a far more pliant, stretchy state and stays that way till it cools. If you’ve already stuck a piece and warmed it, be very careful trying to lift it back up for repositioning – it will stretch a lot and may even rip if it’s too hot. This special wrap vinyl has the wonderful ability to return to it’s original, smooth state when heated, but you must LET IT COOL before attempting to lift.
A good practice if you’re planning to use heat is keeping it low, and only use it on parts that have already been lifted. If you get your whole piece applied perfectly except for that one bunched-up spot in the middle, you can’t add heat to that spot and expect to push it away. You’ll have to release the tension on it first by lifting it off the surface, even if this means removing half your piece to do it. No amount of heat will make a puckered area retract when it’s adhesive is in contact with the surface. You must lift it first, and if you’ve already applied heat, you must let it cool before you lift it. Only when the distorted area is freed from the surface should you apply heat, and then only enough to allow the pucker to reconstitute itself back to its original smooth state.
Here is a very short video I borrowed from another website which illustrates very nicely how heat makes the vinyl go back to its original state.
Back on the road this past Saturday (June 17, 2017) to make an appearance at Laconia Bike Week. This powerhouse ride was only 400 miles, but all in one day. Ten bikes left Cape Cod in the POURING rain at 6:30am Saturday June 16th and rode hell-bent for leather to Quincy MA before the rain subsided and we could begin to blow-dry.
Laconia didn’t disappoint, was as weird and wonderful as ever. We ate some great food, heard bands, and saw a stupefying array of bikes and individuals from the sublime to the ridiculous, even running into more Cape friends unexpectedly, till it was time to head back. We hammered home as fast as we could, managing to get pulled over just once 🙂 arriving home about 9pm. Wow, long day!! Till next year Laconia, don’t change.
June 7th myself and the lovely Bonnie hit the road on “Scrolly” for our first Americade appearance. We left Cape Cod on Wednesday right after it stopped pouring rain and rode to Bristol CT for the evening. We resumed the ride Thursday morning with our friends Mike and Sherry for Lake George, NY, taking the most wonderful scenic route through the Berkshires up into Vermont and west into rolling farms of New York. After 2 days of meeting people and showing off VicWrapz at Americade we began our return home Sunday through a whole new set of scenic routes from the Adirondacks thru western VT and into MA, about 800 miles all told. Back at home Monday we were burnt crispy and road weary but had the biggest smiles – what a ride!!
