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:

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!
