I have been in touch with Steve Backenkeller in Tucson and am close to setting up a date/time to go over and get the Cannondale ST500 painted. He sent me a link to Colombia Colors for me to take a look at and narrow my choices down a bit. Right now, my fav is Hawaiian Shimmer Blue...very nice. Elegant, actually. I have a list of about 12 colors and will narrow it down from there. Once that paint job is done, I'm anxious to get the bike built back up so I can see about some overnight/two night trips. First, I need to get some distance on the bikes again. Fall is coming sooner than we think...Maybe a trip to Albuquerque via Cannondale ST500???
Ok...tune to exit with...J.D. Souther doing his song, "Faithless Love". Not many people are familiar with J.D., but he's a singer/songwriter type who wrote songs for Linda Ronstadt, Glenn Frey, and Bonnie Raitt, among others, although he never had much of a commercial presence on his own.
