Where did you get the orange paint?

Rally Raid. The fit and finish isn't that nice but it's shorter and looks better than stock IMHO. I was experiencing crazy turbulence with my XD4 at speed and now I'm not–so it's been a worthwhile upgrade.

Does that help with the heat issue? I was thinking on wrapping the whole headers with same mash I saw on some choppers' exhaust. I think it`s asbestos or something. More common known as heat insulation

4) there were some locals hanging about after dark nearby

I put all these together and decided I'd rather be safe than sorry, so I wheeled her in for the night. I've had two bikes stolen in the past, and I'm NOT up for a third.

You know when a dude from Oakland says this it's legit. That being said, you should know better than to plan ADV'S in Richmond! hahaha
