And I ended up with this nice bloody gash in my knee, and also my jeans...
Funny thing is that when I just got my first 7161's I also fell with my bike and as such have a lighter spot on exactly the same spot on my knee.

Repaired it already but figured I could take some pics while I was at it:
Not much to see in terms of fading, but it does show my whole "set-up"...

Did a traditional hand repair, stitched a piece of the beautiful Cone "tweed" denim under it and then folded in the edges and stitched over those

As good as new!
