    Mentioning the battery, mine was getting pretty low, I had to bump start once or twice. Ordered a battery online and was going to make my ride home from work my last until the battery showed up, until my FI cut out riiiight at this stop sign:

    Got a jump from an ambulance, luckily, and was able to get home. AAA hadn't showed up, even after an hour!

    We don't go for mesh jackets in Alberta. If you don't ride cold here you don't ride much.

    Agreed. Rode again today - Edm-Leduc. +6. Heated grips worked nicely. Too bad the weather is about to tank. :(

    Krylon satin khaki. Took me 3 hrs and $10. I think it came out good.

    Nice work Fragile! I've painted mine 3 times already. I was considering the khaki for the next color - but the Krylon Fusion Khaki which is a Flat finish.

    Very nice! Post some close ups!
