Heading down to the Moto Grappa in a few minutes to pull the front wheel off the GRiSO so this Michelin Pilot Power can go on in place of the present done-its-duty MPR4GT.

Changed out the rear while on that mutton-running trip last week, then decided when back home that I should have done front, too.  It seems -- i.e., code for "surely not, but could a new rear tire cause the front to go south more quickly?" -- that the "looked OK when I left and mid-trip" front tire, sure got ugly fast after the rear installed.

Anyway, I'll do the low-paid work of pulling the wheel and wait for the skilled techs -- Dr. John & Bob -- to do the No-Mar swap tomorrow.

You will like the pilot power. They don't wear well, but the grip is great. With your harem of bikes, shouldn't be a problem.

Yesterday, I scored my first victory with my No-Mar tire changer.  OK, yes, I had help from Dr. John ...

Then, Muttoneer Bob showed me some tricks of the balancing trade ...

That led to today, when -- with the help of my able assistant  I love you -- I reinstalled the front wheel with its new Pilot Power to match the one a Kentucky shop R&R'd on the rear during the mutton run.

Kathi saw I was posting that pic of her. She then insisted I say here that she keeps her cell phone in that little pink purse when she comes to the Moto Grappa because I am always telling her that tools, parts, fasteners, and more simply disappear there without explanation.   Wink

Left the GRiSO alone but finally got around to fixing the Velo Solex. The little French death trap now runs.

GRiSO and I attended the 16th Barbers Vintage Motorcycle Festival near Birmingham, Alabama. Burned up 475 miles of twisties in and around the Cheaha mountains (highest point in 'bama). 5 hours on my feet drooling after rows of old iron.
Perfect weather and a few strange sights.
Go GRiSO, or go home! Lol

get one. they're a hoot. top speed of around 22mph, evil handling, 220mpg. they made something like 9 million of them. spares, except for the very early ones, are easy to come by. cheap to buy.

Took my rear wheel to Cadre for balancing. Here's Enzo talking to a fellow who's about to do a test ride on a very nice black GRiSO:

Took the carc off to be inspected, as an unusual sound coming from it. Best be safe than sorry. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Went for a ride cheers

Due to border shutdowns it's the first real ride I've had since the start of winter.

No new roads, just a full 4.5hr circuit of Canberra.

The bike ran great Razz - I was quite rusty Embarassed

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


Was an absolutely beautiful spring day.
The reptiles were out, warming themselves up on the road.
I chose the wrong end passing a red belly Shocked
Got caught up in a traffic jam approaching Bungendore due to a stray horse being struck by a car (the horse's owners were blaming the driver scratch )
Then some dipshit tried to take me out at the roundabout entering the main street Evil or Very Mad
And to top it off, while fuelling up in town Pete Roper rolled in astride the Green Horror Thumbs Up

What was the horse business? Where was that? Up near my place/the graveyard? There were a load of obviously rutting, (Or whatever horses do?) nags over the other side of the highway. I thought it might get a bit *Difficult* if they weren't controlled. Lots of neighing and kicking and pushing at fences. Fuck that. Horses should either be in a can with 'Pal' written on it or in a pot with a 'Glue' label....

Oh, and good to catch up!👍

No, the other side of town, half a km up Bungendore Road from the roundabout with Tarago Road.

Oh, and I like your fancy disco headlight Cool
