I never was a fan of hi-viz jackets and as I did not get noticed wearing this:

Am not convinced it makes any difference when your number is up...

Today was a very special, albeit sad day.   Fred, a very active member in the Dutch VFR Club Nederland had passed away following a mc accident before Easter. He never woke up from the coma.

Not sure, but saw his daughter Candy.   If there ever was an apt name for a female....       Speaking of raw, utter sexiness.............................      

And it must be contagious.......  Thank you Keny!!!     Went to look at 2 today, 1st one was grotty beyond belief so I didnot even make an offer   The other one was the other side

Fair enough. I'm not convinced either but I try and sway it my way. How about inflatable part of the vest?

Ok, she has a centre stand, but could snap this one up! And who knows, my next mc may have a sidestand only... :-)

 

Solid as a rock, small jack under the engine and front end servicing a doddle..

I really liked the ABBA stands, especially the Sky Lift model.  Expensive, but way cool and easy to use!  They were in process of building new models so I held up the order.  Maybe a Christmas present, hmmm...

On another topic.....   I found out too late that a guy in my town was selling a complete fairing kit WITH a solo seat cowl...   :-(

Since I still cannot ride, might as well create good vibes and mood by going to a gig...

Revalidation is going well, but still cannot ride.

 

Weather is -to coin a phrase- "shyte", so will retreat to the couch with a book and a wee dram....

 

Ride safe boys! (and girls)

 

 

Slainte!

Is Hans Dulfer still playing?  I saw him a couple of times when I was in Leiden and back visiting for the Leidse Jazz Festival.  I even have his CD!

 

Ciao,

Congrats Dutchy! MBD always reminds me of the song lyric "You can check out anything you like but you can never leave."

Looking at a minimum of 6 weeks to full recovery, by that time we have winter. So no rushing to another bike (if any).

 

 

This is what you did say this fall (not 54 minutes ago), BUT I think its cool, you have to hunt when what you hunt for is there!, an early Dutch spring indeed :tongue:, Congrats for it, may it serve you well, and sure there has to be something to improve also :wink:

Congrates - looks awesome - what year is it - did you mention that in another thread ?

Yeah she pulled and pulled and pulled.......   but my wrist was telling me to take it easy. after a while, clutching because a bit painful.

So far the focus of the physio was stretching the tendons, not so much strength. started with that and the prognosis is good. Just have to be patient and keep at it.
