Thanks for the comments Bill. I have inherited a love of historic architecture from my father who was the president of the Geelong Historical Society for many years. I usually use an old style large format view camera to take pictures of the buildings.

New Sneakers put on today. 2 of my buddies came over and we did 6 tire changes and balancing today. Most I've ever done in one day. Then we drank a Lot of Beer!

There’s bound to be controversy but here it is for one day only - GRiSO doing a standing start.

16th June - all gone now folks.

Nice - Guess Cheshire police too busy supporting local lockdown raves Wink

BTW Are you trying to find ways to eat away that un-needed new clutch ?

But it said "SLOW" on the road.

Or is that just a suggestion?

That’s a good observation Mark - I was being goaded by the road, once I had reached an acceptable level the tarmac stopped insulting me. 👍🏻

Since I blew the fork seal, I've had the bike in a front wheel holding stand till I could afford new seals. Last night I was watching tv and heard a loud crunch. Went out to the garage and found the GRiSO lying on its side. It had hit the shelving in the garage and broken the bikini fairing and broken off the left mirror stalk at the assembly for the clutch master cylinder and clutch lever. I think I must have broken a couple of mirrors the luck I've been having lately.

Lucky I've got a spare clutch master cylinder for you eh? Can't help with the fairing or the clutch lever.

Buy a set of cheapshit flea bay levers, live without a fairing for a bit.

And tie the fucking thing down securely FFS! You know you loose air from the tyres. It's not going to stand up if the tyre has no tension in the chock!

Fork seals cost nothing. If you can't do it yourself send the forks to us, we'll rebuild 'em for $200 inclusive of parts.

Arrrgh! You'll do my bloody head in you will!

Thanks Pete. I'll send you a photo of the damage tomorrow and you can tell me how much to put into your account.

He refuses to look after his bike! He didn't change the fucking engine oil for 40,000km for Christ's sakes! I like the man but he's a bloody menace with regard to maintenance! S'OK, we'll get him mobile but I will, eventually, beat into his peanut brain that regular maintenance is a lot cheaper than riding it to death and fixing it!

Arrrgh!

^^^^^

I missed the drama that caused that, but it got me to read the rest and am now all caught up.

Condolences on that event.  Sad

I would have cursed so loudly and long that you all would have heard me there! Evil or Very Mad

Best wishes on the fix.

Rich P. and I took the Grisos over the Shawanagunk ridge and around Rondout Reservoir. Mebbe 100 miles North of NYC in the USA.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

....... a quick 360klm round trip to Roperville to get a Beetle map update installed by Michael .......... I had replaced the stock muffler with an Agostini Mandello Stainless Conical 'cause the OEM muffler kept getting in my way and I was worried about damaging it and myself.

It was a bit cool first thing this morning, mostly 5 degrees all the way. Pete reckoned I was about to drop dead from hypothermia when I got there so he rehabilitated me with a nice warm fire and a hot coffee. To be fair, he did say it would be bad for business if a customers routinely passed away while waiting to get their bikes fixed. Fortunately the trip back was undertaken in a positively balmy 9 -12 degrees.

BTW, post new map, now much better throttle response (more efficient?), better fuel economy and a bit more happier to cruise along at a higher speed (130 klm/h)

I had GRiSO in bits while fiddle farting about with secret squirrel stuff last week. It was a sunny, if cool day, and I was knocking tiles off the en-suite wall. Obviously I had rocks in my head, so I downed tools, went into the garage and reassembled GRiSO and went for a ride.


cheers

Not quite today... but back in 2007 I took the GRiSO to a rally in the deep south.... delicious lands to an historic woolshed. A rally that is no longer.
