I got my spare bodywork back from the painter the other day and got it mounted and got out for the first ride of the year. The pictures don't really show the difference as well as in person, it's a lot brighter blue than the original Ocean Blue was.







Here's a new one from today, looks like it maybe shows the color a little better.....





Since it still needs to be buffed out I didn't remount the winglets yet, what a mistake! They're going back on before I ride again today. I'd forgotten how bad the wind noise and helmet buffetting was without them. It was also my first ride with the Sargent heated seat, from just sitting on it when I got it I wasn't quite sure what all the fuss was about but now that I've had a chance to ride with it it is definitely an improvement over the stock one and the heat sure is nice, plenty warm enough even with the Alaska Leather sheepskin on, in fact once it gets warmed up I have to turn it down to about 1/3 on the thermostat or it's just TOO hot.
