    My brother's bringing his Ram but he's working this weekend. So next weekend (25 or 26) is looking good.

    Also please let me know if you see this bike somewhere in Northern Virginia. Guy on Reddit ("k20AzAk" for my reference) had it stolen from his secure apartment parking in Fairfax.

    Black CBR600RR with flush mount front turn signals, fender eliminator, and scratches on the right front fairing.

    So I'm flirting with the idea of painting my brake calipers red this weekend. What do you guys think? Good idea? Corny? Too ricey?

    Some left an overturned shopping cart in my blind spot and I clipped it with my tire. Good 2-3" gash in the tire. Anyone know if I can swap the spare tire onto the aluminum wheel?

    Red calipers. I have my rotora 6 piston aluminum red calipers. But wanted the grey. Keeping the red clean is painful. Your vehicle. Customize away. Make sure you remove them from the truck, clean them 100% with heavy degreaser and wire brush. Then paint with caliper paint. Local auto parts store sell it. Might look into a high temp gloss/ clear coat too.

    I'll be doing a ride a long with my buddy in your area on Monday...I would see if I can stop by but I don't think you would appreciate a cruiser in front of your house :)

    I need to double check the tire model and size. From a quick glance they look the exact same. I called Toyota and they said that the tire is only meant to be used as a spare.

    The spare on my '14 is exactly the same as my stock TRD OR tires.

    They may only be saying that since the steel spare wheel is not meant to be used for long periods, the tire shouldn't be different than your stock tires. Unless there's some dry rot or similar problem from sitting outside under the truck the whole time it's been built?

    I'm not stressing it. The local fire chief has been stopping by to say hi lately. Trying to get him to fill my SCBA tanks.


    Just keep the camera off and we are good ;)

    Spare was the exact same as the regular tires. Switched it to the aluminum rim. Picked up a used tire for the spare, turns out they had the same model as the stock tires.
