Tks BS9.

The rest of the lads. G on her own so she didn't show up the others...[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Did get one odd high-idle issue one morning like TPS had set itself high. Turned bike off and on and all was fine. Will ask query in tech topic space...

One of our tasks was to ensure beers were still available in these towns. They are. Will check again next year.

Guy arrived on a Bellagio, so we chatted for a bit then I headed home.

Hey Blue,
I'm looking for new jeans too. Where did you get yours, and what do you think of them?

Hi GTS,

See my other report in the Darkened recess for jeans detail.

I got mine from Onyerbike near Aylesbury on the A41 not that far from you. I think the Infinity bike stores sell them too and they are on Ebay. I really like them, they are very comfortable. There's a few different designs, colours, etc. I had a cheaper pair but these do feel much better.

[ which is cheaper ] but I was not so sure about. Having fitted it last night I like it. It looks much better than I thought it would and the fit is really good. If the Silver seems too much I will tone it down by painting it Black.

Will post a picture when I get a chance.

Ordered replacement levers from China a few days ago so will be waiting for those to arrive for a while.

Yup - why does it do that when you lean it over......... Smile Just the GRiSO leaving it's signature for the road to remember.

Can you see the painted over bit on bottom left bit of the cooler housing? [ where that taxi driver took me out last year and then left me in the road] ...... takes a lot to get me going, but I would have had a good go at altering his apperance if i had not been kissing the tarmac!!!

I need to dremmel that bit smooth and repaint properly. scratch

Nah, chicks dig scars. All my scrapes and scratches are battle wounds. I have a similar scrape in my cooler cover. cheers

Got my new front tire mounted a couple of days ago but only had a chance to ride the bike today.
Fuck me!! I forgot how well this bike handled and the parking lot moving around was a lot easier. Amazing.
The old tire was the stocker Metzeler and had 9600 miles on it but it's about 1500 too many.
I'll try to be smarter from now on. LOL

Finally got to bring the GRiSO home. With 6" of snow the day before, mother nature did a nice warm up and the streets were relatively dry by 2pm yesterday. I took one for a short test drive last year but nothing compared to my first time experience. Even though is was only 48F I still managed another 80 miles of driving after the 25Mile ride home. Once in my garage I did the obligatory wipe down from whatever road spray I picked up and also mounted my oil cooler screen as well.

Another picture of the Oil Cooler Screen. Was surprised at the quality for $32.00. I thought it was going to be flimsy but it's a really nice product. Just received my Dart Flyscreen in the mail today. Will have to do that next.

Looks good. Glad you got some miles in and like the cooler cover. I agree about how well made they are.

It feels good. I like it. I'm not sorry.

The Ghetto Australis run last weekend gave me horrid wankers wrist. Up until then, I've never ridden the GRiSO more than about 500km in one day, usually with a long break somewhere in the middle. The pull back on the stock bars was not quite right for a big ride. These are Aprilia Mana bars, which I had lying around. They are a bit narrower than the stock bars, and have more pull-back with a tad more height. It felt weird at first, but I soon decided I like it. Hopefully, no more wankers wrist (at least not from riding). Suspect


Oh, and I also changed the oil in my bevel box.

Hope the bars work out for you. The mirrors look nice. Rizomas? What's the black thing-a-ma-bob left of yer throttle?

Oh yeah, has anyone ever mentioned your ceiling could use a little work? Razz

WTF? You can't even see my ceiling. Razz

Black thing-a-ma-bob is a throttle lock. For the boring bits between corners.
The mirrors are el-cheapo Chinese eBay knock-offs. Gynaecologists speculum's, Pete calls them.
