Well, at least you didn't get your hands full chain shit.

Did you just pull half the tire off for a patch or did you replace the whole tube?

Oh yeah, what tires are you running Greg?

Mod,

we just broke one side of the bead and replaced the tube. The Tyres are Mitas (used to be barum) E07's, Im pretty impressed with them.

From the same ride.

Pudding photo?

So is the pudding hermetically sealed in acrylic?

I guess that way on long rides the carrier isn't tempted to eat it?

There are rules for eating the pudding. As the contents have been around a while ... they used to rattle around inside the tin - sounded like one squash ball to me, there is no way I'd want to eat it. I think it has now gone mushy ... I'm amazed that quarantine has not picked it up.

So is it encased in acrylic? If so, it has been "pre quarantined"!

Pink? lettering

I picked up this fine example of an Africa Twin a couple of weeks ago. The only objection was the pink lettering. Some of you suggested to keep the bike the way it came from the factory. I find it difficult to live with the color. So, I purchased some aftermarket lettering in anthracyte (dark metallic grey) and started to remove the hot pink on the side panels and a small splash on the front. I'm waiting for the grey lettering to show up before I take off the bigger pink ones. I like the bike's color scheme without the pink. I'm keeping it that way and adding the grey.




As an aside, when I went to get the VIN verified (Colorado step to getting anything registered) the guy doing the verifying is also a rider. He said he thought he knew every model Honda had made but this was a new one on him. I kept my mouth shut.

Jim.
