Undersigned is an old fart with experienced b*tt-pain and pains in shoulders and neck from wind-drag. A 10 years regular service in the gym eliminated all earlier uncomforts with long high-speed rides. Moreover, strong muscles is an issue of safety. When the unthinkable occurs, the difference between static strong and weak muscles in neck, arms, legs, everywhere may be a question of survival or avoiding becoming a vegetable. So all bikers of all ages...KEEP FIT and STRONG!

I couldn´t agree more.

As my former last 6½ years as an infantry squad leader i´ve used the gym extensively. Funny part is that i´ve, at my age 32 run the fastet cooper ever last week. 3470m = 12:00

Maybe some more McD would help cushion the butt a bit more...

Locul....so sorry for the tangent taken...

Balsta, I couldn't agree more. Not an old fart yet, but getting there at a pace of ... 24hrs/day !!!
Gym is un-replaceable. So is isometric toning as well as flexibility, something that weights do not usually address....

No sorries in this thread. My bad english and the like can make some funny mistakes at times.

Being healthy is plane smart. Ay

Edit:
Found some timelapse from some army course i went to. Lots of boring evenings, though training makes me happy.

Not for the faint hearted...there is an ass.

That looks like a huge smurf vvagina







good idea though, I am also one of those "pains in the asses" riders, my renazco seemed to help a lot but far from perfect.

Also one more vote for an external pump solution, along with a question:
Do the rear tanks pressurize when running low on fuel?

Home for the vveekend and did recieve the filters from Gefr. Thankyou

Installed them and got the bike put together again. There vvere 2 things i vvould like to confirm this time.

1 - A vvell running engine.
2 - My ass liked the smurf.

VVell i did go for a ride, around 100km, and all issues are gone.

1 - Engine is strong and pack a lot of horses, maybe even vvinged ones.
2 - Ass and smurf are novv in an relationship. THey like each other. If any are reluctant of shipping there seat out for BIG dollars. Seriously try to alter the seat your self. The tailbone split or vvhat ever. It is very easy to do.

Sail on.

Some photos of vvhat i did and vvhat to remember.

First off all the trip yesterday. I did do the Paleo-style...



The Gefr package from Greece. 23 euro to get this xxxxx euro costly bike running.



Fuelfilter comparison





Remember vvhen doing project like this and you VVANT that fat rear. Not to much chainslack or it vvill come and bite you...




The issue vvith getting the safaris to line is maybe even easyer on my project since my lovver anti-crushbar just goes vvhere the tanks need. To make it even easyer and sturdy it is mountes to the bashplate. VVorks very easy.


ohh...the vveather in Denmark is novv motorcycleble.



Today i´ll try get some video done.


Regards from Denmark

Holy f###!

Mikael came to my door today. "Wanna ride the 1190 ?" ... Yes please :-)

It runs fine now...... I must say the bike behaves rather nice. Lots and lots of power but it's not intimidating og scarry. Not too much anyway!

Mikael filmed a bit so there's some video on it's way.

Thanks for the ride
