Caballero and furious 2011 - Partenza

Anche quest'anno edizione funestata dalle rotture per il mio caballero che inizia a gridare pietà.. ma almeno siamo riusciti a fare 16km, pochi se si considera che 3 anni fa correndo da solo con un 50cc sulla soglia della pensione i km erano stati più di 20..

Mi rimane la magra soddisfazione del primo giro in testa nonostante un'andatura da casa di riposo.

XS 650 in Cannes

Bella XS modificata con gusto e competenza, pezzo forte la coppia di Mikuni a valvola piatta che danno un bel tocco sportivo ad una special molto curata ed elegante, ma da usare tutti i giorni con soddisfazione.

Getting there

We worked on the Virago again last night. I took it for a small test ride first (sorry for the crappy cellphone video).

In one word: Brilliant.

It really was Brilliant. It rode very, very well. So when I came back, we started stripping it for paint. Not our favorite job...

Was going through old photo's

And really liked this one. Thought I'd share it.

New shop opening

No, I have not gone commercial and I am not getting money for this. I am, however, very excited with the new shop opening in Ede, the Netherlands. We don't really have shops like this one here yet and I am anxious to check out what that have. One think I know for sure: It'll be really cool stuff.

O god, what have we done?!?!?

Well, the title sums it up nicely again :)

Just couldn't leave this 1978 SR500 for that kind of money, so we bought it. We promised ourself not to start on it before we finish the Virago though!

Riding into the sunset

These are busy times for me, but don't feel sorry, I am enjoying myself hugely. Done some riding past weekend and even needed the CB today because I had an appointment where I couldn't (reasanobly) go with public transport. So I just had to take the CB, tough luck, I know.... ;)

The Cb has not been running 100% lately though, it's been running rough at higher speeds. I found the problem tonight: The brand new condensers are not working as intended, so I replaced them with old ones I had lying around:

And then it was time to take it for a joyride. The plan was just a short ride to test if everything works, but as usual: I've been riding all night, till the sun went down. Love it.

Took some photo's again too (and a short video, but I'll edit that one later).
