I made mine up from aluminium salvaged from a road sign:



I blew up a photo of a home made shroud I liked; made a cardboard template; cut and shut it till I was (moderately) happy, then traced it onto the ally. Then put a bracing strip down the front to blunt the leading edge. Hold it on with Allen bolts and rubber washers.

Yes indeed, some good character shots there... what's more amazing is where Chris and you guys get to on these old machines.... sometimes I think I'm getting into it a bit here in the Pyrenees, but I'm not even scratching the surface; you guys and to be fair several others out there on Honda Vtwins take the biscuit...

Bet it's difficult to even think of selling the old girl hey..csustewy.... the bike that is, obviousley

Enjoying all the photos posted..keep em a comin

Cheers

this radiator shrouds are homemade with alloy 1,5 mm, you can`t buy them anywhere.

Ha! I know, selling the trusty ol' gal (the TA, still talking about the TA...) would just be so damn difficult. After posting the thought of selling in our RR I've been coming up with ways to avoid it. I'm convinced it will work out. And we'll keep doing our best to get some nice photos posted in the meantime...

Are the Pyrenees currently as snowy as what Cory (aka Hotmamaandme) is out riding around in?
(Good on you, Cory, for getting out in that weather!)

Hi Mike, Depends where you are I guess...here at the house by the fire no , on the mountain tops, OH YEAH

I have been daft enough to venture out in it though in the past...




Yes, she has been a reliable and trustworthy companion and has never badly let you down; how could you ever think of parting with such a star... Still the bike RIGHT...

Cheers

HHO PWM Controller is Pulse With Modulation Controller for my HHO cell. I'm using it for about a year now, and my fuel saving with hho powered system is about 1.5 L / 100km. Before HHO my average consumption was about 5.4 to 5.8 L / 100km, and now with HHO is about 4.07 to 4.5 L / 100km. And after 15 min of HHO is being activated you can feel more power at throttle. It's also home made edition as my automatic chain oiler system.

If you don't know what the HHO system is, Google it :)

Cheers

Hi Iron-Floyd,

Thanks for the reply, I thought there were too many lights and dials to be just a heated grips etc etc set up..very interesting. I think the guys on "show us your Transalp modifications" may be interested in that? http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...39170&page=948

Ride safe

Cheers
Potski
