Cool Re: Motorcycling 2011

40 degree this morning, an old friend showed up for the ride out to Ephrata, with his brand spankin' new S1000RR:



60+ miles only saw one cop and 4 other cars.
Got to see some neat bikes once there:













Twin FJRs:














I got to sit on a special parts carbon fiber Diavel today, not quite my type of machine, but once fired up it rips quite nicely:





Carbon tank is just mesmerizing:





Some action shots:







Total opposite of HP output spectrum:

Re: Motorcycling 2011

Those Indians looked brand new to me.. Are they still making new bikes these day?







Just the leather luggage pieces looks like they cost a pretty penny..

Yeah, Indian is up & running again. They start at about $30,000 though. Makes Harley look cheap.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

Picked up another SV650S:





Dead battery and likely needs and valve adjustment due to loud valves at idle, but starts and runs great.. hope to turn a profit on this one.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

I took the advanced rider class today. Exhausting, but it was a lot of fun.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

In the weekend we had our first trip to abroad this year - we went to Austria to attend a Walpurgisnacht...

The intro:

The idea conceived during the hiatus between Madoka's 10th and 11th episode (addiction, y'know): I had to visit the model for the series' school which is located in Leoben, Austria. That building always gave me the creeps, it's not far from here, and the surroundings are beautiful. The timing was a given, of course I must go there at Walpurgisnacht. You can imagine how happy I was to learn that a witch festival is really held in the next town, Kapfenberg. This way I had a double target We could celebrate my birthday and shiNIN's name day this way too, and on the top of that there was my 50000km 'anniversary' with Teresa too

Re: Motorcycling 2011

Are the units of your Gaslog for Teresa & Ciliegia correct?

Seems to me the unit for your distance traveled for each tank should be recorded in km.. not in miles, your last entry to Teresa of 300.87 (miles) for 3.815 (gallons) of fuel consumed looks overly exaggerated.

Re: Motorcycling 2011

...checking...

484.2km / 300.87 miles
14.44l / 3.815 gal(US)
2.98l/100km / 78.86mpg

I don't see the problem. It's almost at the lifetime average. Did I overlook something?

Actually I just modified it by a +1% correction factor. She's always measuring less distance than both Ciliegia and Google maps by some 1-1.5%, and the difference just grew with the new tires. Last year I compared her tripmeter to the road signs on long, undisrupted freeways and it was always off. Now that it's even more off I can't ignore it anymore.

So it's now 489km / 303.85 miles which gives 2.953l/100km / 79.64mpgUS.

(Yup, a GPS would be nice, but I don't have any now.)

Just nitpicking.
