Is that the first time the Big Girl has had a lie down? How hard was she to pick up? And did you get any stone damage to anything with the front guard off?

in short
no
not very
no

lol



no it has had a couple of lie downs it is pretty easy with the panniers i just stood on the rear tyre to get it back up to that point then just put my bum to the seat and lift with my legs

and no i didnt get any damage to the bike from stones getting thrown up but i did buckle the front rim in 3 spots from holes and rocks but they should knock out

Those alloy rims are a bit soft for a heavy bike like ours. I really want to do a spoked wheel conversion; I know is HAS been done, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to go about it

When mine falls over, I'll try the bum:seat lift, and if that doesn't work then the handlebar-end-lift, and when that fails then I'll just wait for someone to come along to help

Sorry to hijack this thread but I was wondering if anyone has managed to fit spoked wheels to a Varadero and if they have any pics?

Hey David, actually yes, but not in english :) Take a look at:

http://egypt.motoride.sk/photo/MEE2006/
http://egypt.motoride.sk/?waypoint=182
http://egypt.motoride.sk/?P=egypt/cestopis

We also have a book and DVD, but again, all in slovak language. If you are interested, you can pick it up at VIM13 in Slovakia :) Or at least we can discuss about it in english :)
