Was on 13 days 'omnia mea mecum porto' camping trip in first half of August, 1700km, 80% tarmac 20% off


























So rear tyre came to this :





and it became necessary to replace it with Pirelli ST66 :












Bike performed flawlessly (for it's condition) during entire trip, except one-time allmost overheating on rocky uphill (not in pictures)

New form of old lady :









Rear light with its mounts taken from CZ350, LEDilised, of course.
About 85% done.

Awaiting Shinko 244 front 3.0*18
Thinking of two small ammo boxes (for pistol ammo) for tools, in place of rear foot rests.
Dashboard yet to be, no gauges except android phone for speed and navigation, 12V socket with 2 USB, Neutral and Oil LED's, turn signal beeper, digital V-meter with red LED panel and couple of switches.

Thanx !

One of my philosophies is - every 'product' leaving factory is actualy semiproduct and it's on byer/user to finish it
Thereby, less money - more imagination and gumption
