    You change bikes quite frequently!
    The new V-Strom is pretty darn good for it price tag.
    But can't think of anything less exciting.

    Why?

    Why?
    Fast enough for me, and stops me losing my licence. And comfy for me and the misses for long distance. Plus VTWIN TORQUES @ 4000ROM

    And I had the K13S for 2 1/2 years. I know it was comfy too but it is due for the major service, and the front ball joints on the duo-lever suspension need changing (around 1000 for both to be done). Plus I never really got the most out it besides on the track day I did. Its very fast (licence losing) in a straight line but not great round corners. Plus I've heard they get very expensive to fix at around that age (2010) and the suspension goes around that time. Since it is ESA, it's not going to be cheap to replace either....

    Tried a Honda CB1000R (2016), was quite good fun but not very comfy. Good A-Road blaster, not for long distances.

    Haven't ridden since my op 4 months ago. Got addicted to fucking eve of all things again while recovering from my op. Now, I'm clean and need to learn how to ride again. Which part is the engine?

    Op success?

    Since I parked my bikes mid september, we have had 5-8 days without rain.
    Wish this shit could stop, clouds also needs to fuck off. Need some clear blue skies or I'll end up on a murderspree.

    As social distancing and quarantine is not a thing in Swedenland (yet), I have put in over 1000km the last week.

    New for this year, I have gone back to Long Levers, so much better.
    Minimum effort now to pull in the brake, easy with even one finger and I can hold the clutch in forever without being fatigued.
    Put on Techspec tank pads, mostly to protect the paint. Pegs aren't high enough to really use them.
    Still waiting for my new Carbon Side Panels, month delay
      Spoiler:





    Came across this in my Youtube Feed, very well made and music is perfect for the setting.
