A case of "hold my beer and watch this!"

I'd send a picture of my bike but you can't see any evident farkles. James likes his toys to be a little more, um, exposed.

You're right - the GSA is a bit of a fat pig anyway, so a few ounces won't make much difference. I think I'm going to leave it as-is.
