Make sure to post a picture when you do. I'd love to see that.

Looking to added hard saddlebags then if funds allow looking to add a batwing fairing. Paint will follow.

Fortunately for me, I'm just painting the batwing. Your job may be more of a challenge - blending existing color. I'll let you know how it goes - photos if it's OK - excuses if it goes bad!!

Summer time here

Well, I hate to be a spoil sport ....
but it's pretty damn warm over here. (under here ..?)
Most of Australia does not see snow at all so we can ride relatively comfortably all year round. It does get chilly in some parts but nothing that a good jacket and heated grips wouldn't fix.
I rode yesterday through the Royal National Park. It's a favourite sunday ride for the all the boys outa Sydney. I estimate I saw well over 100 bikes go through; all the major food groups were there, sporties, cruisers, young and old.
So we do not really have a down time, or off season.
Pretty happy about that.
But I do enjoy reading what you are all up to.

Yeah but you're in the southern hemisphere, which as I understand it makes you 'backwards'. Your toilets flush the other way and it gets warmer there when it gets colder here!

One of my best friends lives in New Zealand and he gets snow in July, and they usually go to the beach and swim and barbecue on Christmas!
