No mileage today

Not a single observation to report.

Chain is still snappy, brake pads still showing grooves. Seems to be some useful service remaining in these parts. OEM grip selection is fantastic! Plenty of life left in that rubber and good adhesion to handlebar.

Fenders have been modified from having 6 supporting rods to 4 supporting rods and are performing flawlessly. They rattle slightly over rough roads, but all of the nuts and bolts are still tight.

Really appreciated the BLT light from Mark. It is a vast improvement over the turtle lights. Can see road signs lit up blocks away. Turtle lights were nice, like when there was a couple of red ones and a couple of white ones all in flashing mode on the handlebars, it looks like police 'cherries'. The BLT light has easier to find batteries (AAA) vs the turtles' (CR2032). The BLT light makes a better flashlight. The BLT light costs more (saw it for $40 at Bayview Cycle) vs. turtle light ($3.50).
