I was at the leather store, picking up some grommets and I happened across some orange acrylic leather paint that is a near perfect match for the Sam Hillborne's paint so the trim on my leather bags got a little work.

Finally wore out the Schwalbe's. Tread worn down to the puncture resistant layer. I only blew 30 bucks a tire this time. Picked up a pair of Michelin City in 700 x 32. That's only 5mm larger then my last set of tires but could it be that easy? No. Could I just switch out the tires? No. That 5mm was too much for the rear fender in it's current adjustment. This means I had to walk over to the hardware store and pick up some smaller spacers and bolts. A one hour job became 2-3.
