I knew you were going to ask me that !Sometimes I don't know what I am. At times, I think I lost my 'pátria' (patriotic feeling), back and forth all my life between two countries. I'm proud of being booth Portuguese and Canadian.

P.S. I meant to say 'plains', I was probably thinking of the air show in Evora near you, when I said 'planes' ;) , some crazy/skilled pilots there. http://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=CA&v=26H-WzIe858.

E Filipe ou Flipe?

Eu concordo, vivi no Alentejo 2 anos em Santiago do Cacem e Troia, em 1975 e 76, praias maravilhosas.

Congrats on the new bike and great picture on the 660

I would love to have a 660 too

ereneT if you are back and forth all the time, one of this days we may have a good chance of meeting.
Next time you fly , go with SATA , ask the name of the Captain , if the answer is Vitor Lopes, please come to say hello.

Chamo-me Filipe, Flipe é apenas um nickname ;)

Vivo relativamente perto de Santiago do Cacém, +/- 60km´s. Sem dúvida, Portugal tem praias maravilhosas. Para mim, as melhores praias encontram-se desde a Zambujeira do Mar até Sagres, costa vicentna é linda.

Thanks a lot buddy, i have 3 passions: bikes; travel; Photography ;)

Sent the ECU to AF1 for a re-map. I hope it's as good as everybody says it is... Yes, I've been running the clutch switch mod. I actually kind of missed having touring mode.

I always fly on Sata to Lisbon, is there any other way? I'll remember that. I only have one bike or else we could go for a ride when you have to stay in Toronto
Two years ago I visited two Azores Islands, São Miguel and Terceira. I really enjoyed a meal cooked underground in the steaming volcanic hot springs in São Miguel Island.

Filip, I don't know the company, I'll look it up.

Someone better post a picture in this picture thread soon, we're going to get in trouble

A number of us just run a switch on the clutch mod, so still have the stock "S' and "T" adding the third map by closing the switch.

I didn't miss the low RPM weirdness.



Plus I'm getting the regular gas map installed, which means I can run ethanol free gas, which is readily available around here.
