Default My wife's XCT is my Ness' twin

I've been pretty quiet of late on the forums. Maybe because it's the off season and not much to do, or maybe because I can't do much more to my setup.

Since my ride is where I want it (trailer and all), I thought I'd move onto something else.

My setup:


I was so impressed with how well painting the trailer with Victory paint came out that my wife and I decided to dismantle her black XCT and paint to match.

I tore it down completely so all the painter would have to do is prep and paint. Only took a few hours but holy crap, there are a lot of parts and screws when all said and done.




Some photos of the paint prep:




The parts painted:




All the finished parts:

Yepper. Good you saw it Paulie. I was going to point you in this direction. We absolutely love it. So much so she already can't wait to get out and about. She's never really shown a whole lot if interest in riding this bike. Wait till you see both bike and the trailer in unison!!
