Ooof... sharp eyes... yes it is original. I am having a braided stainless, one-piece line made up to replace it! So far I have gotten to maybe 25mph and am just bedding in the pads....

My son stopped in for a half hour on Friday, trying to get home before Stormin' Nemo cut out all driving... and got to see and sit on the bike (and ride it up the street!) for the Very First Time....



I'm pretty sure he is a Happy Camper......

Autumn is starting early this year I think, temps are still good during the day [30c], but getting cooler at night [12c],
perfect weather - wish it would stay like this all year round
Cheers

Your weather is going downhill, and ours is getting better (or so we would like to think....!!...) Keep up the good stuff, love your posts!
