More of this peculiar white stuff coming down from the sky..

Oh, and I have sent a stock request for an Acerbis 25l tank to Hessler. I would really like one.. We'll see what happens if it's in stock.

Made this little protector to save the license plate light cables from flying gravel and mud. Have been replacing the lights too many times.. But no more!


How the lights look turned on.


Got the muffler in place.



Rear brake lever painted.

From a couple of rides last summer with a friend. Can't wait to get back on the saddle!

Martin, if you don´t like the snow and you want to ride, then do what i do now. i´ve just returned from another fabulous dayride on the island of sardinia. i took a ferry from italy (about 900km from home) and been riding here the 4th day now.





up to 15°C in the sun, but still chilly at night.

Looks awesome! Quite far away from home though.. But I'm planning a small weekend in the dunes of Denmark! I wish I lived closer to the mediterranean area.

Got back to the garage and did some assembling yesterday. This is what I did:

T-vent fitted. Didn't have enough hose in the correct diameter so I had to use a larger one, the one that had to be zip-tied.


Fitted the new indicators I bought this weekend. Stylish!


New front brake pads. Looking forward to some new brake power!


Fitted the chain! Wish I had bought a new one, but it's barely used just dirty. Money went for something else


Fitted the tank for a start test..


This speaks for itself

Odd that the later years don't have a tach.

Hur gammal är motorcyckeln?

That's weird.. I love having one! Would feel empty without it.

Det är en 1992 ĺrs modell.

Spring Thaw Rally

Sent in my application for Vĺrrundan a.k.a Spring Thaw Rally in March. It's the first road book rally for the year and I'm really looking forward to it. See info here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=759328



Got the trackingnumber from the Hessler shop and my tank is on it's way! I'm hoping that it will arrive before the weekend. Currently we have really nice weather, perfect for riding. So please DPD Germany, don't screw my up shipping!

Farkles

Began with some of the farkles for the bike yesterday. Made a new GPS-mount for the Magellan. Currently drying after being painted before I went home yesterday. It's going to be awesome!


The holder is made of aluminum with inner shock protection made of rubber. Not tested yet but I doubt it would fail.

Also put some new heat shield tape on the right side panel. I overdid it quite a buit.. But better to be overprotected than under..


This little note dropped in the mailbox. It's an advice of delivery note! My tank is here


Stay put tonight! The bike will be finished! ( will it really ever be finished? )
