I'm still setting it up. I did about 10 miles to make sure it was working and we've been locked up in the garage since.

Looking forward to seeing it.

What made you decide to paint it?

I just didn't like the orange very much. The gray grew on me in 2007 but I didn't give this one much time.

Here are a few quick pics. This one is a little dark and the bags are on backwards.



This shows the color better.



New dash layout.



If it ever stops raining, I'll get some outside.
