Yes. At an auto parts shop. It really depends on the color. Vivid black is pretty easy to cover up. Other colors, not so much.

Once I make up my mind, I'm full of indecision.

From the dealer. It came in two bottles, a base and a clear. If I remember mine was around $36.

I bought some touch up pens from colorrite.com

For my bike I needed the base and top coat, so two pens. Came out to about $43 shipped, but the match is dead on.

This is what I used on my bike, truck, wife's CTS, and any customers cars I do. Except for one.
I did a Audi and the owner bought the pens from them. I won't use them again.

i have used Dr. Colorchip on my cars, and love the results. I don't see them as having paint for motorcycles. Am I missing something?

Dealer, it seems I always end up with colors that have a different color base coat. I just got some for my Black Hills gold , this time it is not a two color one.

Dr Colorchip will match perfectly. If you have any doubt call them. It will come out better then the pens or the brush type for sure.
