If you can put food away, Louie's Backyard has an excellent all-you-can-eat seafood buffet (and prim rib now). We gorged ourselves on the snow crab legs.

Put on some brown hard bags from Viking luggage and also got cool LED lights for those long night time rides.

I'll bet that was tedious work doing the spokes. How'd you do them? Will it hold up to the elements?

Did you use black spoke covers rather than paint? Can't quite tell in the pic but it appears covers.
