The master at work

I still have problems with the text editing. Don't know a solution yet, so I have to deal with it until I do.

I have been extremely busy. Had to do an oral presentation on an international congress (went very well by the way) of my intern research last week and I am now finishing the report, writing another one an reviewing one. Too many letters, not enough bikes.

 Some 'older' (few weeks) photo's Desmomeister  took. Take note of all the safety measures I take so my ears and eyes are protected when I grind parts of my upper leg ;)

Le sorprese non finiscono mai..

..ma per fortuna è solo un tubo del circuito "starter" per l'avviamento a freddo che non influisce sul funzionamento del motore, che dopo una bella sincronizzata ai carburatori gira piuttosto bene!

Blogspot help?

Maybe someone here can tell me.

I am an avid user of the Opera web browser, so I use that to make new blog posts. However, lately a lot of edit functions disappeared. I can't change the color of my text, can't center the text, can't make it bold, can't change the font, etc... etc..., basically the only thing I can do is add photos.

When I try the same thing in Internet explorer I can change the font, I can change the color, but I still can't make a hyperlink or center the text.

When I use a laptop with the Opera browser, I can do all that. I deleted all the coockies and stuff, but nothing changes.

Anyone know how to solve this?

Virago chopper update

I'm a bit late, these photo's are from last week.... We are already much further along now. For instance: we painted the yellow brake caliper black, we fixed the exhausts in the right place, painted some more (but what u see here is the final (roughly) paint scheme) and did quite a few other jobs that in the end make a big difference, so keep in mind that it looks a bit more sloppy on these photos than it does in reality.


I've been away or a few days to a wedding in Poland. I have to admit that I did not have a very positive image of Poland before I went, but that was all ignorance. I'll keep it short: Beautiful country, wonderful people, hospitality must have been invented by the Polish, traffic is way better then I expected and I will NEVER EVER get in a car again that is being driven by my mother in law. NEVER.

But Poland is now somewhere near the top of the list of countries I want to go on vacation to.

Beemer cafe (a very nice one)

Shitty weather.....

..... means time to do some (less necessary) stuff on the bikes. A friend of mine is getting the carburators of his classic Alfa Romeo ultrasonically cleaned, a nice opportunity for me to get the carbs of the CB cleaned. So under the watchful eye of my cat I took them off, disassembled them and I just gave them to Max who is going to clean them. Hopefully the weather will improve a bit soon, because I got a photo request for the BMW, more on that later.

The season is pretty much over

Autumn has begun. That means that the BMW probably won't see daylight until spring (unless we get a couple of days with dry roads. The BMW needs dry roads with the velocity stacks) and the CB will only be used when necessary. Weather-wise it wasn't the best season ever, but bike-wise it was. I was very happy to have both the BMW and the CB at my disposal. Nice.
