This video is a little hokey and the bikes are uncomfortable...don't get me started on the helmets...but if you are looking for good information about riding in traffic, this is the best I have come across in a long time.  Many scorchers and mountain climbers seem to have forgotten about folks who ride upright and slow.https://youtu.be/5s5hJhLBUec

I have JUST found out that a chain of auto parts stores in my area will be selling customs-mixed car paints IN SPRAY CANS starting in a couple weeks.
SO, if you are restoring an old bike, or want a custom paint color, these folks can do it.

The Taunton MA store is already doing it, and my local Plymouth MA store will be doing it as of the 30th IIRC.

I went for a very short ride with my hard working beau today.  It was short due to my extreme ancient-ness and the 60 hours he put in at work this week.  boy I have a long way to go to make even the 25 miles of the Obliteride in August. ; /
