GL1800 Goldwing – How to Build it for Embroidery

Animated GIF file of How I built the GL1800 Golding file point by point.


In order to be able to do quality motorcycle embroidery where I can scale the image up or down and not lose any stitch density, I have to digitize the image myself.  I could send a picture off to one of the digitizing houses and they would send me back a file thats a specific size and I would be able to scale up or down maybe 20% before the embroidery quality suffers.  The goal of a good digitizing file is that there are as few color changes as possible and as few color stops as possible. A color stop is where the embroidery machine will tie off the stitch and then cut the thread.  It’s much more efficient to have embroidery that stitches, does a running stitch to the next area and then lays down more embroidery stitches and so forth.  It’s very time consuming to get a perfectly digitized embroidery file, but with practice and some planning before starting the job, it can be done. When you want to get your motorcycle done in embroidery, you want to have someone who can make changes as your motorcycle changes!


When you have the digitizing file, it’s easier to make changes such as adding a backrest, adding chrome trim pieces, changing the pipes etc.  This allows Dry Heat Embroidery to do true CUSTOM MOTORCYCLE EMBROIDERY and not just simple color changes and text changes. Thats not custom, thats changing a thread color.  When you want to make your embroidery reflect your pride in your motorcycle, car, boat, whatever it may be.. you want CUSTOM MOTORCYCLE EMBROIDERY from Dry Heat Embroidery.



GL1800 Goldwing Trike Embroidery

GL1800 Goldwing Trikes Embroidery

Goldwing Trikes: I’ve been spending lots of time digitizing some GL1800 Goldwing Trikes for my riding brothers and sisters since there aren’t a lot of embroidery sources out there for them for patches, shirts, hats etc.  It takes me an average of around 7 hours to digitize a new manufacturers Goldwing Trike.  Because I digitize the Trikes myself, I have full control over what color the Trikes are and what accessories I can put on them to match the customers Trike.

What Makes Dry Heat Embroidery Different

when it come to Goldwing Trikes?

Dry Heat Embroidery isn’t a process.  We are a company that takes pride in embroidery that shows the detail of the customers GL1800 Goldwing Trike when it’s stitched onto hats, patchs and shirts. You can buy ready made embroidery patches of Goldwing Trikes  over the internet and they might look okay, but when it comes to your Goldwing Trike, is your’s the same as everyone elses?

You can see that I spend a lot of time trying to make sure the embroidery looks like the customers Trike.
