    Nup , that's more than I am paying for a new one with 0 K's on it . Plus , the major up date came out on the 20 models , more go , less weight and quite a few other minor improvements . That is probably circa $2K overpriced . They were only $12 .2 K ride away back in 19 .

    Put some 20mm bar risers on the road bike. Pinched nerve in upper back is giving me grief. After a 200 km workout on it this morning, it worked to an extent. Shoulder still tingling tonight. Wondering if I may have to give up the Tuono ?!!!
    Test rode a RSV4 1100 Tuono on Saturday. Bugger that. Intimidating. Im not a pusssey on mine either. At 61 I should slow down...... VIDEO0116_01_0000057169_1.jpg
    Does not happen so much on the Camel. Am I destined to a kick starter for the rest of my riding life ??
    I wonder if a Rocket 3 would cause me issues :-)

    Have a look at the Triumph bobber, the riding position works with my 2 dislocated collar bones and it is blast to ride

    There’s no place to give that a LIKE X 10. They are just sweet for what they are.

    Changed the muffler on the GT535. 1B0D456A-8649-4C6B-9DFE-5914FB64893F.jpeg 706B6706-6377-4A36-A25D-F802A36ADBFC.jpeg

    looking for a smaller house & bigger shed.
    Now that's a muffler! What is it from? It's (Darrell Eastlake) Huge!


    I'm going through the mounting bolts on the sidecar. Changing the 10 year old ones over before I give it a re-alignment. It shouldn't be too far out of adjustment.
    It may have been easier if I'd totally disassemble the sidecar too. Why would I try and make things easier?
    There is a definite limitation to available allen key turning space down there. No one tool will do the entire job.

    It’s from an earlier Royal Enfield 500 Bullet. A mate gave it to me some time back. It’s half or more less weight than the standard GT535 muffler. As I was doing it I realised it(the muffler)looks like the “Trail” 500 RE they now make.
    Its all in fun.

    After endlessly searching for some rare 83mm spacing TZ Nissin calipers, I finally got a pair.
    Showed up this past weekend, so I cleaned them up inside and out.
    And put the calipers on my TZR-SP today.

    Time to replace my AirHawk Medium Cruiser with the new RS Version on the 2010 R1200GS.
    The old unit has given me a good run over the last four years, used on a daily basis until the valve separated.
    When I first purchased it, didn’t read the instructions, over inflated it, hated it, threw it in the corner of of the man cave for two years.
    It’s amazing the difference when you actually read the instructions.:fpalm

    Calling rossguzzi, these timing gears were made by a bloke who was a member of the guzzi club WA back in the day.
    He was a machinist that had a dislike for chains and made some 10 or so sets, I bought these s/h from a bloke in Rockingham/safety bay area.
    More details over in Olds Cool classic guzzi pics.

    have you ever replaced the Gudgeon circlips and then, got sidetracked before putting it all back together, and had that heart stopping moment when you find the original circlips sitting under the bike and you think you forgot to put them in?
