Default Crappy Chrome

Anyone else experiencing this? Time for powder coating on the trees! (Or maybe I can now justify the rake kit) I hope this is rare amongst Vics. ImageUploadedByMO Free1374671859.867587.jpg

it looks like you follow a gravel truck. Look the turn signal is doing the same thing.

Don't know whos fault but agree with visionjohnny it is on the turn signal and looks like under the head light, almost like something acidic was throw on it or it was sand blasted in a wind storm or something. Those are after market turn signals also, so different chrome applications so I would not blame it on the chrome or Victory either. Maybe just bad luck on how it happened.

Just comes from living in Fl. Seen that damage on a bunch of bikes over the years. Got to be VERY diligent about your chrome in those parts

Turn signal is only 2 months old too. Salty ocean breezes I guess. Can I justify my powder coated rake kit now? Lol

No other chrome on bike is affected though. Just the trees and turn signals?????
