I drove off very slowly to the main road and once on it, opened up. Only for the engine/gearbox to protest heavily.
Tried shifting down but no, it felt like the gearbox was jammed..... Not matter what I tried, could not shift down so pulled over....
 
 
 
 
Ahhhh......................   GP Shift!!!!!!!

Fitted the heated grips on the SP so took her out.

After 3 hours, my hands are still warm, but the rest is not.

"water cold" we say in Dutch

Let her harden for a few days, then a fine pinstripe over the "lines".

Fellow SP pal of mine recently bought a Tiger 1050; 2 up with luggage through the alps on the SP was fun, but not very comfortable....

As the CASTROL decal kit didnot come/have the white stripes between the green Castrol and red Honda decal (and I needed to tidy yp the green paintwork around the seat), I got some pinstripe tape

Dutchy, I had the weirdest fucking dream last night that I was visiting you and staying with you while I was there.  I think we stole (or borrowed) a sailboat.  Little fuzzy.  We did enjoy some scotch for sure though.

 

Don't ask me...   no clue.

It sure does. The "sports"saddle is waaayyy too soft though. Upon spirited acceleration, your ass sinks in it so much that your body is rocking backwards. Really weird.

Dutchy meets The Dutchy once more :beer:

 

 

Sweet Home AlaRAYma :goofy:

IMAG0215.thumb.jpg.2c20ff73c19365f77bc72bd2910e0295.jpg

(there's MOTUL 5100 in her, the CASTROL container only to put the oil from the engine in....)

 

All 16 lifter clearances withing spec; not bad seeing how the engine gets to works for its fuel...

 

IMAG0216.thumb.jpg.69562252ccfab2889faa212144a85241.jpg

Scenic route heem....

IMAG0247.thumb.jpg.ccab08fa605d8973d41ba88fbf550aca.jpg

 

Spring is in the air....

IMAG0233.thumb.jpg.7b8806f7fac312e30fdf57afd8b71977.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Only to realise I'd left some lock and keys..... :unsure:

 

 

Almost home so I hopped on the SP for a quicker TAT in lieu of the dark clouds looming

 

Colorful eh?

IMAG0256.thumb.jpg.8eda4ac37d1419833200ab2b091c1f70.jpg

 

 

 

 

Nearly made it back in time. Nearly....
