Found this RR early this morning & just finished...slacker that I am. Really nice job! Thanks for taking the time to share!

I am jealous of your riding area...not a switchback anywhere near here

a beautiful spring day in WNC (it got up to a foot by evening)

what a difference 10 days make: beautiful riding weather...

so I figured time to put the parts into the beemer and do a test ride:

added some genuine F650 parts




and went to "work" - should not have been a problem, well - this is the end-product as of last night



I ended up removing the whole rear-end to have a thread "helicoiled", and to replace even some more parts. Maybe I should have asked my hubby to look at the suspension instead of trying it all by myself (guess I learn as I go ).

So, since I am stuck anyway waiting for parts I decided it's a good time to replace the old gas in the Morini...

"draining" the gas...


and replacing it



finally some "mechanical" work I don't screw up


to bad I forgot to charge the battery for the camera... great day for a ride.

Country Hub - across from Ingles in Mars Hill (about 40 cent extra for non-ethanol gas).

took me a while to get rid of the old gas on Paint Fork - Phipps - Prices Creek

I found a place about 5 miles from me that sells non ethanol regular for about the same mark up....isn't it nice how they charge you extra for NOT adding something.

Yeh... I love the way you pay extra $ for less processing of diesel. and ... aircraft fuel... (basically kerosene), way less processing than unleaded regular, but bigtime pricey.



Hi ho Cuttle... 5 weeks to the RDV!!! Spam... good with eggs and toast.

Can't wait!
