Thanks Graves!

I didn't set any speed records, but stuck with it and made it through. I'm trying to push myself to ride more difficult roads...can't improve if I don't practice!

It's always good to push yourself, you discover that you can make it over that...

how do you like the cb1100? its a really great looking bike. I like the looks of these a lot. it would be great to have a new modern one with the reliability of one of the big manufacturers.
I love it. It's a really fun bike to ride, and to look at. :p And, it is the only bike I have ever purchased twice. I had the 2013 version also (always regretted getting rid of it).

I took apart the throttle housing and pulled off the throttle tube cleaned it, greased it some and put it back together. Difficult to twist throttle after falling in mud yesterday

Was woken up early today by hailstones banging off the bedroom windows but still went out for a spin in brilliant autum sunshine later in the day. Came home foundered after 40 miles. Bloody baltic, the heated grips are crap and that’s it for this year. A deep clean tomorrow and tuck it away for the next five months. I remember how I used to ride all through the winter, but these days, not a chance.

Installed a set of Denali 2.0 D2 Trioptic LED lights on the dedicated Africa twin bracket. Plenty bright enough, almost a perfect match alongside the main headlight. Not cheap but they are a quality, well made product that have an adjustable spread pattern with an set of E marked filters, so can be used on the road legally in conjunction with the headlight.

Placed an emergency order for a set of rear brake pads. :eek:

Thought I could make 16,000 miles but I was wrong. Will post a pic in the maintenance section when I get them replaced.

16K? I think I did mine at 8.

I’m in the middle of repairing my latest crash damage. Radiator is straightened out, new inner shroud, air box cleaned out... going to install K&N’s, new chain and sprockets, hand guard mount and maybe cut the exhaust tips. Thinking about some Outback Mototek crash bars (mids and lowers).
