Doesn't Owen find a cliff to go over on every ride???

He went down following me down a nasty single track but I don't think it was a "cliff" per say.

Here she is.......I've since added some farkles and stickers. Picked up the pig last Friday. Such a joy to ride. Look forward to taking some on road and off road classes to beef up my skill set.

Great job. I also have the grey GSA but looking to change it up. Thinking yellow but I would like to find a site where I can see some GSA custom paint jobs. Well done!

When we say new paint are you guys having these done professionally or are you rattle canning the paint jobs with Krylon Fusion Plastic paint? However they look great. I would like to see some rattle can paint jobs on GSA's and see how well they turn out.

...and you can see the difference. No rattle can job can ever match a pro's work. Of course $$ spent is not comparable either.

It's ok for my first paint job. I will get it painted professionally eventually. This is my daily driver so I couldn't afford to have it out of commission for a few days to a week so I painted it over a long weekend. I just got a company car so now I can have it done right. Some places around here are very proud of their painting, charging $300 to paint the beak and tank cover. Most are $150 which I think is about average , but for some reason everyone charges more for red

I like that color scheme -- makes sense.

Happen to have the color codes?
