Yeah close proximity has its pos and cons...

But you can still move your fingers and not shaking as you can take a picture, no problem then.

I am jealous,haha. Honda always gives Europe the best configuration, the most abundant products, including VFR800X VFR1200X ....

The wait is for Honda to give Nicky "the good stuff"

He is already looking pretty..

Racing is dangerous, saw  the superstock 1000 crash right in front of me. Reminiscent of the Simoncelli incident, seeing how anothet bike rides right over a body is something you donot wish to see.

Packed up and left as seeing the medics franticly working for a looong time and ambulances arriving took me back to Lithuania... :-(

Once home read that Fritz is concious and injuries appear to be "ok"...

The Bagster tankbag is just a tad "too beaucoup", I can reach the bars just enough....

 

The jacket I won at TMAC12 (if I recall well, CC wanted that one to win) is still going strong; keeping the chill of early in the morning. Wind protection not one of the plus features of the SP :goofy:

Not only went to America, but also to a town called Ysselsteyn. for one, i live in a town called IJsselstein, it is also an area where they grow the White Gold :cool:

No, that is not a variety of White Widow... :goofy:

White Gold is what we call.....

Stopped at a bike shop for a coffee and a "sit" on the other bike I considered..

 

IMAG7068.thumb.jpg.db45741ec4226300893c3e0f9dc9ebd5.jpg 

 

Nah.... glad I bought the VTR1000-SP2 :cheerleader:

 

 

 

 

 

Today, Sunday, an historic day with general elections in France. Although our species have a habit of forgetting one's history.....  

 

Ysselsteyn is also known for a place where one can see what the result is from voting in a populist leader who promises to make the country great again and identify "them" as scapegoats...

In comparison, Margraten, our largest WW2 cemetery for American forces, holds 8,302 servicemen..

A high price was paid for their folly (not that they had much of a choice not to go to the front).  And what do we do, we vote for populists "en masse"; in the NL we see the same with Wilders voted the 2nd largest party...

 

Education and compassion is what will make us truly "great", not rhetoric...

 

 

 

 

 

And for Skuuter:

 

"Frietje America" :tongue:

Still on company paid garden leave.

Living in a socialist euro trash country is a biatch eh? :goofy:

 

Got a few interviews lined up, but so far the "1962" on my CV seems to be similar to having a Muslim name and wanting to enter the US in the "we make you feel welcome stakes" :-)

Leave the DoB off your CV. Companies should not discriminate on age these days.

You telling me I should not have dyed my hair grey for that "distinguished"  senior look and revert back to may natural, lush, deep brown hair color? :tongue:

 

 

I will probably adjust my DoB to 1972 and once I actually sit f2f with them..........

"Are Friends Electric 2.0"

 

 

In 2014 I test rode BMW's C Evolution, which was fun, but looks wise and seating position not an ahem "real" motorcycle.

 

 

Today, by chance I came across a "eco" fair where the ZERO was on display AND available for a test ride.

Who am I to say no to a free ride???

 

 

 

ZERO.jpg.ff617c88f30e4c59ddadba7c7a75251e.jpg

 

 

 

Did the BMW (in 2014) give 72Nm torque,

my SP2 118Nm,

the SR delivers                          146Nm......  Holy Shitt!!!

TorqueMonster 2.0 :goofy: 

 

Frame, suspension, handling, brakes, all excellent.  The one scary thing is that as you speed (and I mean SPEED) down the road, cyclist and pedestrians NEVER hear you coming...

Replaced the fake cf ones for much brighter (21W halogen) ones that look more Honda OEM.

The topframe should have 2 holes for "proper" oem Honda indicators (as per the fiche) but their is only one... Och well..

flower4.jpg.5c8a15122bff9c6d9a0e76640d9c9e4e.jpg

In a world full of "one size fits all" UJM's, where pretty much the world is green,

there is "us"!

 

 

Us being those Honda V4 and V2 lovers that go against convention!!

 

 

 

flower3.thumb.jpg.04ac02449081e95ff9f2c8a56e074a5a.jpg

 

standing out in the crowd, rightly so!

I have to admit the white scheme is growing on me.  I still want the red one, though!
