That grazy old bike

Today we had a little ride out with our provincial departement of the Dutch Transalp- Africa Twin and Varadero club and altough the weather was kind of shitty, I decided to leave the mighlty Dero in the garage and took my 2nd XLV .

We made a 100 mls ride (167 km) in to Germany, to a famous place called the Bike Motel, where you can eat realy GIANT Schnitzels including feggies, french fried and potatoes for only € 7,50:



I'm the guy sitting at the end of the table with the gray fleece jacket.



The place to be:

And although the weather protection of the XLV750R is rather crap, my biceps have increased a full inch tnx to the return to the Netherlands with strong headwind on the German motorway I really LOVE this ancient Honda big trail bike!



Waiting for a traffic light in the middle of nowhere... Strange guys, those Germans...


Best mod I have done: replacing the original airsuspended rear shock unit for a Technoflex unit (as on the model which I am working on in the postings above).

Will make some pictures tommorow before I clean the bike. Its a beauty. Even when its dirty!

With special tnx to Marco and Hans for providing the pics!
