The motorbike rides again ! :-)


The bike has got a new/2nd-hand brake-pump (only half the mileage), new speedometer cable, brand new hand guards, wiring for GPS and Gerbing heated gloves, new oil seal in the final drive, the valves clearances are checked & adjusted and the CO from 5.5% back to 1.5% (!), front wheel has a new air valve and both fuel lines now have a dual-sided quick dis/connect.
