      Had it all repainted. Jet Black with Blue Pearl in the Clear Coat. When sun hits the blue metallic shows but it is black in low light.

      Thanks to GaGator, I have replaced my Raider.  Just got it registered yesterday and took a 10 mile ride around the block.  Five months...nice to have a new ride. Peace.

      Well done Phil!  Didn't know Rick was selling his bike.  Glad to see you're back on 2-wheels.

      There was Gail being sick in '19, then covid in '20 (so we did the KYRR), then this year my bike got trashed.  Booked for the next one though.  I been missing riding with you guys.  It's always fun.
