You forgot to paint the bodywork.

The initial attraction to motorcycling inflicts people for various reasons and at different stages in their lives. But once someone experiences the elation of riding a motorcycle there’s no denying the nearly spiritual effect it has.

Bloody hell.  In the context of your bike I might be reluctantly willing to make a partial exception.

Various 120, 180 and 360 Laverdas - and a single.

It's a personal thing. I just don't like the bare carbon fibre look.

May remove engine today. It's sulking in the corner at the moment.  :(

Here's what happened leading up to the main event.

4,000rpm, just started to head up Bellbird Hill, heard a metallic knocking and it was loosing momentum, went to drop down from 4th to third and it just stopped.

Pressed starter, only just cranked over, presumed the battery was flat, rolled down hill to a cafe, had lunch giving it time to cool and cranked it over and it fired and ran, but the clatter it made was not nice....shut it down. And called a tow vehicle.

Sorry, must have been 3rd to 2nd. 4000rpm in fourth would have been too fast for that area... after all, I was following Vince. :P
