How's the VFR1200X working for you? Still enjoying it? My brother is enjoying my old one.
Great bike indeed. It's an amazing owner's experience contrast between it and the Katoom. Down on ultimate power but the thing is solid everywhere and stone axe reliable.
Here is my ohv. This is a scan of a picture. You know what a kodak 110 instamatic is? Tough to get a good photo with that!
Never blame the tool.
I know photographers who can produce stunning photographs from out-of-date iPhones.
Now, 30-year old color photos on beaded paper stored in a box in a garage attic, that is an insurmountable problem.
Cool bike though. Nice rear sprocket!
The only thing worse was a Kodak Disc camera.
Played around the grounds on these two this afternoon. Good fun!

My SE, my blue 03 950 adventure with 99000 kms.
Then a bike that I built for a riding buddy..
04 950, which had a noisy motor. As a quick repair, I found a motor with 20000 kms on it, will rebuild the original engine at a later stage..
Bike is a full stripdown and reassemble, all new bearings, nickel plated bolts, stainless spokes and ceramic coated Hubs..
I have been working on this 1997 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport since I bought her 14 month ago. This bike was originally a factory painted yellow bike, but her owner had her painted in this BMW red two weeks after he had purchased this bike. He wanted a red 1100 Sport, but only around 75 red bikes were send to the US of the total 1340 bikes build in 1997, so he did the next best thing by having this yellow bike painted in the color he wanted. I also have another original red and two original yellow 1100 Sports sitting in the stable, so it does not bother me that this 1100 was painted in BMW red. I actually like this red better than Moto Guzzi's "Orange Red" paint.
Her last owner did also not replace parts as they started to wear out, so I had to replace the tires, batteries, both front and rear brake rotors and pads, the passenger seat needed to be re-leathered, and I replaced the front aftermarket turn signals she had installed with original factory replacement parts. She also was in need of a complete tuneup, which included all new filters, plugs, valve adjustment, and the EFI system needed to be balanced. I also just reinstalled her valve covers and crash bars after having them powder coated in black.
I have not yet decided if I am going to keep the pod filters installed, which opens the engine compartment up a lot, or if I am going to reinstall the original airbox again, which will then hide the rear suspension spring? The next task is to ride her for about 100 miles and then tune the ECU a little better so she hopefully will stop the occasional coughing and sputtering she still has. I'm also thinking about removing the rear seat and have the rear tail section's seat area fiberglassed over and then painted in order to make this bike look like a true one seater. All she then needs is a good engine detailing, and this bike will hopefully be ready for springtime!
From what you say about the previous owner, I would be interested as to whether the bike had its services and repairs done on time..
I have recently had a bike doing that coughing thing which had me scratching my head. Eventually I did a leak down test and found the inlet valves on the rear cylinder to be leaking slightly..
So it might be an idea to do the same on your bike.. Might even have small clearances which are causing the issue.. It's definitely not normal though... Riding it might cause more damage than good if there were a problem with valves..
Out enjoying the extended riding season yesterday. There’s usually 2 to 3 feet of snow this time of year where I’m parked.
Sadly enough, the 97 MG 1100 Sports had issues from the factory with the ECU’s fuel injection mapping. One of the ways that many 1100 Sport owners fixed this issue was with the installation of a new performance ECU chip made by Will Creedon. This bike has the WC chip, but her last owner also installed a Power Commander, which probably is not a good thing to have with the performance chip. Many people also don’t know on how to dial in the fuel delivery system, so that will be more then likely my issue here. So I’m going to uninstall the Power Commander, ride the bike for a while, and then hopefully get the Creedon chip dialed in correctly. I luckily got up with Will Creedon a couple of month ago, and he actually remembers working with the original owner of this bike about 18 years ago. Sometimes it is a small world after all!

Bought a 2017 CRF250L little adventure bike. Not real fast but lots of fun
