The Gist

Travis is almost finished painting a (totalled) Ninja ER6-N. Even after the long prep, it's a three-part process. One layer primer meets a next layer of blue meets a third layer that's metal flake.

Speaking of maintenance, listener Dominik is looking to perfect is mobile tool collection. Fortunately Tim's latest bit of kit has him covered. Well, that and a few typical DIY go-tos.

Also in this episode, MSTA (Motorcycle Sport Touring Association) president Patrick Mogevaro wrote us a great article. Kentucky's "Hillbilly Triangle" is a most excellent route. Robin reads it turn by turn and feature by feature.

Listener Questions

Dominik wants to build a custom (any "Clime" or place) motorcycle tool kit for his 2019/BMW/RnineT/Scrambler. He'd prefer stainless steel and/or titanium for strength and corrosion resistance. His bike is riddled with torx, so "sourcing" is our game.
