    I have been wanting to customize a pipe that I can store and use on the motorcycle when I am out riding. Got a Blue Dr. G Viscount as a bonus with a trade and decided to make it mine. While the blue was pretty, it was a bit boring. The pipe started out:

    I thought it would look good with a rustification band, so went to this:

    Liked it, and that was fun, so went for it to make it my unique motorcycle pipe. Ended up here:

    Sorry Dr. G. Hope ya dont mind.

    You should of carved shapes of continents! On a serious note, I think it's an improvement. Nice job.

    Pretty cool. As for the motorcycle pipe, I've thought about taking one of my cobs on a ride (and they have been on a ride, for use at my destination), I have to wonder how it would fare smoking while riding. I've rode while smoking a cheap cigar, and I've seen people riding with cigarettes, but I would imagine the wind would be an issue with a pipe. I'd love to hear how it goes when you take it on the road.

    I would never try to smoke the pipe while riding. Tamping and relighting could be hazardous. Of course the full face helmet would probably make that difficult even if I wanted to.

    Trying to smoke while riding would mean forgoing tamping I guess. I suppose the full face would make it difficult. I usually ride with a half or 3/4 helmet so I wasn't thinking about that consideration.

    Last year I saw a guy riding and he had a pipe with a windcap on, and all I could think was DANG THAT'S COOL!
    But I wouldn't try smoking a pipe while I ride, I can't imagine the bowl would hold up too well with the wind blasting on it.

    Pretty impressive. Makes it uniquely your own, that's for sure.

    That was the idea. I know it's not pretty, but it's unique and different. Gotta get hold of a red one and do a Christmas theme. Peterson has their Christmas pipes, why can't Dr. G.? :thu2:

    If only it was Orange instead of Blue with black stain on the rustication..... Perfect Harley pipe:th1:

    I've got a Nylon pipe that I sprayed with Black rubber dip paint, and added a white bowl to, as my biker pipe.
    Virtually indestructable, great knock around pipe.

    Now there's an idea. I could collect orange pipes and rustify em with black flames and sell em on eBay. My eBay store could be "Coastie's Biker Pipes". Gotta leave HD out of it or they will want their very large cut. :booty:
