I cleaned Her up, topped of the fluids and adjusted the throttle cable & Cleaned & adjusted the chain. Yesterday I rode Her hard. I've got 1400 Miles on her now and I can't wait until I get the "S" Suspension done at SPS and light it up out in the Dez here in SOCAL this Season




CHEERS!

Put another 1200kms on mine and some sweet new rash/scratches on the tank protectors. Koocanusa and the sandy trails turned out to be a damn good choice for the weekend. So good I'm taking the 450 back there next weekend!

What did I do with mine? Bought it, thats what.

Tried to replace my mint 1150gs with a similar one after it was written off last year. Almost got a GSA but was let down by the independent dealer. Haven't had any luck finding a good one since so I've decided to go Orange

It's an '08 with 19,000 on the clock. One owner, a book full of stamps and a wodge of receipts. Needs luggage and over winter I'll be taking a few bits to the powder coaters to tidy em up. Other than that it seems to run and ride well.

Gave her a bath. Hate doing it but it was long overdue.

Replaced the cracked splash guard while it was kinda clean.



Then got all smug over a real garage...



Which of course bit me in the ass when we dropped the VFR off the lift a little later.

Tall Screen option fitted to my 1190 ADV

Fitted the taller screen option, which is 45mm higher than std. Hope this helps reduce buffeting, as it's also a bit wider at the top.

*** Update - I can confirm that it's much better. I have the seat on the lower setting and I'm 6'1", so this screen now works for me!

Great tire. Over 6k miles on it right now. This includes riding it flat for 20 miles on the Dempster Highway. I'm pretty sure ill make it back another 2000+ miles to Arizona.

Here's a pic at 5000 miles.

Took it apart to properly assess any damage or service needed from last weekends dusty/sandy ride. Still uber impressed with this bash plate! Must been a boulder somewhere, haha!
