But it wasn’t a simple approach. The custom Fury traveled to all 12 stops of your IMS, culminating within the Ultimate Custom Builder finals in Daytona Beach. A huge number of persons who saw it entered to win by voting for the “People’s Choice” when other individuals, like Fernandez, entered the giveaway via regular snail mail. Envelopes arrived in the Motorcycle USA office from all around the country. Immediately after spending months around the road traveling around the nation, the custom Fury is temporarily back in our hands but quickly it will be heading to Berthoud to meet its new owner.
Motorcycle USA’s custom 2011 Honda Fury has crazy cool gold metal flake paint and pinstriping applied by the crew over at Cutting Edge Illusion, insuring that it is one of a kind. Low and Imply also helped us set the Fury apart from the crowd by sending more than far more aggressively cut fenders and by assisting drop the rear with a lowered rear spring. Accutronix sent over a set of industrial strength Diamond “Night Series” forward controls and front rigid pegs to add to its ill disposition although Cobra Speedster Swept Pipes as well as a PowrFlo Air Intake System give it a meaner growl and more go than a stock bike. Modest specifics like an Accutronix sidemount license plate and also a Low and Mean LED brake light strip give it far more custom street cred. The final touch was applied by Burns Auto Upholstery who stitched a Motorcycle USA sprocket logo inside the middle of your leather seat. We’ve sampled it along with the Fury is actually a lean, clean hard-charging machine.
Fernandez couldn’t believe his stroke of excellent luck, specifically because it will likely be the first genuine motorcycle the professed scooter rider has owned. Granted, a 1312cc V-Twin is actually a significant step up from a smaller step-thru scooter, but the father of two is each excited and nervous in regards to the proposition. But we helped assuage his worries by pointing out the straightforward going nature of your Honda Fury, from its smooth handling to manageable power. Now he’s got a new subject of water cooler conversation when talking to his buddies who ride Harleys. And thinking about he’s got two daughters in grad college, a brand new motorcycle is often a just reward for a man who apparently has accomplished his role as father well. In addition, it implies he’s an empty nester, which suggests he’s got just a little additional time to love a number of the outstanding roads in his neck of the woods in Colorado.
Motorcycle USA officially congratulates Guy Fernandez, winner of our custom 2011 Honda Fury giveaway. We’d also like to thank everybody who entered the contest and caught the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Shows in the IMS.
