Today I installed a plate on the Hepco Becker rear rack so I can use my Givi E52 when traveling. I have 4 givi trunks and just didn't want to have to buy another trunk to use with the rack.

As far as I know, Givi doesn't offer a way to mount their trunk on my 2013.

And a good name for a GRiSO. My teen world view was heavily influenced by Zappa.

^^^^^^^

Ha! cheers

BTW, assume this is the same pic you posted on ADV, but, while I can see it here, it's just a white "?" on a blue square there. You may left out a character in the url when pasting it?

Ditto! My nick name at school in the late 60's was Zappa, because I imported every record as soon as it was released in the 'States.
My world view still retains a lot of (early) Zappa. I've been "relieved" of many of these original albums but i do still have Lumpy Gravy!

I only had Apostrophe and Sheik Yerbouti, but jeez I enjoyed them. Helped me develop my sick sense of humour.

Ha, here I thought I must be a little twisted and weird to like Zappa, and I have found kindred spirits here. Something about GRiSO owners I guess Smile

(Sheik Yerbouti is one of the greatest albums ever)

When you fully grasp "Billy was a mountain, Ethyl was a tree growing off of his shoulder" you are probably in sync with Frank

Back to business. Ordered a bunch of M5 rubber bushings to attach the wing covers to frame. I never learn not to overtighten the forward screws

Well, this is more about what I did with it yesterday.

So, Larry "Lash” is coming up from Ormond Beach, Florida, this Saturday evening for our annual “Try Not to Lay ’Er Down” romp wherever it pleases us for a week.

Regrettably, this trip, Larry’s coming up in a cage; his Norge, in for some major service, won’t be out in time, all for want of a small, but presently unobtanium part.

No matter, he can ride my Norge, and I’ll ride my GRiSO. We’ve done that before; see, e.g., [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Anyway, as Kathi and I had to do some grandbaby (and dog)-sitting for our Army family at Carlisle Barracks, I thought I’d ride the Norge up there — 250-mile r/t by back roads — to make sure it was ready for the road next week.

It sure looked ready ...

Uhm … but not …


[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Verdict? Dunno for sure; I had to get to Carlisle, so no time for more than a quick multimeter check.  Probably dead (5+YO) battery.

So, the GRiSO got the nod.  Had to leave some things behind, but as we used to say in the Army — and mebbe they still do  — “it’s all good training.”

Not 10 miles from our home -- code for BFE, W.V. -- I smelled oil, then, on checking, saw a bit on the transmission housing. Rats.  Pretty sure, given location and amount, it was just blowback from (stoopid) overfilling, but diverted to EX-dealer in Clear Brook to confirm.

That done, had a fine time running up to Carlisle via some grand little roads, e.g., in and around Michaux State Forest. In one instance, I blessed Mandello engineering and Michelin tires for saving me from a low side into a pickup truck on a curve when the rear end went out to the left in some unseen mid-lane sand.  Shocked  

Sure wasn't my competence that saved me. Actually, old age and dull reflexes -- tho my screams were youthful enough -- probably helped to slow input, which likely was a good thing. Sometimes nothing at all is the better course.  Suspect that the p/u driver told someone about that mo'sickle he saw coming sideways at him, too.

Made it to our kids' home, where the GRiSO was to sleep outside until I saw rain was coming.

On reflection, rain might have been better than the danger from kid and other clutter!

But, now, for next several days, there won't be any riding.  Instead, it'll be this sort of thing:

Yes, life is pretty darn good. cheers

Excellent, Bill. This bit really did make me laugh out loud:

Took the GRiSO out yesterday for the first time since last October! Smiling ear to ear, man-oh-man I love this motorbike... I think I'll go stretch its legs on Saturday!

Great story, Bill.  Glad it turned out like it did.

What did I do?  Well I did not ride; winter just does not want to quit.  This was my driveway this morning.  

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

So instead, I installed a Gerbing wiring harness so I can use heated gear on the bike.  Also verified that my cables from London Electronic worked and downloaded / saved my original map using the IAW Reader.

Took GRiSO for a quickie. Went stupidfast. Yelled at tin-tops. Cursed idiots riding in shorts & t-shirts. Cursed the city council for road works that are taking too long. Swerved to miss a cat that didn't seem to comprehend what it was bearing down on it. Grinned like a loon.

Tops!
