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

Did you sort out the running problem when the fuel level is low?

Yep the fuel issue got solved via nevv filter. Simple but fine bye me.

Took a short spin today(again). Small camping area in vvesteren Denmark. Food and mc.


One tough mofo. The ride has also had the mission to test my nevvly recieved Rukka Armas set. VVovv its perfect.


Made one of the vvorlds most beautyful camerabags for tankbag. I´m actually thinking of changing the Canon 7D for the nevver 5D3. Hmmm



The spot.



VVill vvork on the gear indicator. The RC8 dash has it integrated, though i don´t knovv vvhere...yet.

I'm used to two stroke were the power comes more unpredicteble. This is smooth and friendly. The power is there though. I felt it espessially when accelerating from like 80km/h to 120km/h. That went fast....

Love the bike, it is like a modern day Rat bike.
Could the fix for the fuel line running beside the header pipe be as simple as rotating the fuel tap 180 degrees?

Yes i could easely rotate the tap 180. Though i did not like the exposed hose toward the rock and debris.

I´ve deleted the first video and made a new one, a bit edited for ease of eyes and i would like to learn more editing.

Happy days.


Hopefully next week i can get some onboard video/sound. As confidence rise i will ready up some gravel tires.

Today, if wife would agree, i should be able to make some onboard video. That would be while testing the 21-18 set. Michelin S12 it is...

Gravel maybe beach. Time( the amount of it) will tell.







Sad phone quality, though you get the idea.

See you

Not that the bike needs anything else to be a blast.... but those knobbs should double the whole thing...!!!

Gravel test, gravel test!!!

Pics quality: I thought "this is not what he usually shots....", then I read your last comment.
