Not sure I understand your question "What's it like?".

I am really hoping that the weather will be nice on Friday for a quick spin. It is rainy here as well.

Great, thanks for the info.

I can hardly stand it, almost 60 today and tomorrow is calling for rain/snow. At least the lakes/reservoirs we play on should be full for most of the summer.

Those speaker covers are cool, however I don't think I could use them because my speakers are Kenwoods. If I remember right there are only 2 or 4 screws that hold the grilles on.
