    Cardboard don't fish...but maybe you didn't buy the right bottle to entice him.

    Looks good, what color pinstripe to detail out the edges between the colors?

    I think if I was painting my Tourpack I would have the black trim around the lights painted
    with the same color on the tour pack... Of course it's why I have black bikes LOL
