I haven't noticed anything from mine. But I use it at least a couple times a week and always up to full temp.baz yep get some corndensashun but humidity here in NC is high once i got some milky goop in the line but a good ride and hot engine got rid of it other end of hose goes to top of oil tank
Lucky ( to be there ) . Started mine up at noon with a push of the button , full choke , no throttle , pushed down on both ticklers first 'till the now expensive gas burbled up through them. Fired up in 2 revolutions. Let off choke. Warm up with throttle , then off to the birthday party , via the boozy store for Spanish Cava bubbly , then home in 4 degrees Celsius. Nippy. Motor loves the cold though .I started it up. Just pushed the button. I only did that because I started up the Ducati for the first time since my off in March. Since I had it out of the garage (I park it with the pipes facing into the garage) I decided to take it down the driveway, which is about 700m long. First time I have ridden in 8 mos. Shoulder felt fine. I guess I have to get them out now that spring is here.
the famous Ribblehead viaduct was massively overhauled not that long after it was built when the substandard bricks starting failing in the cold winters...Inspired by Welsgrugby I braved the low autumn sun (11C 53F, allegedly) and rode out to Chappel to get a 'bike and viaduct' shot. Not sure what passing motorists made of the old geezer lying on his back next to the bike, lucky it wasn't a health problem as nobody stopped!
I did stop at the local BMW dealer on the way as they hold a Zero franchise too. Been kidding myself I'd like to try one, but only out of morbid curiosity. Very impressive build quality, but.... that lack of clutch lever was spooky, and I'm not sure if I could adjust that quickly. Salesman was candid enough to admit that whilst not lacking in performance, the pricing, lack of infrastructure and necessary culture shift et al had translated into sales figures not too far off the name on the tank
Commando ran fine, whether sitting at the plethora of traffic lights we have now, or at an indicated 80 on the A12! But.. rear brake needs attention, and my summer riding gear is okay up to a point, but I was glad to get home in the warm
'Rising up from the horizon on the A1124 you will see the imposing Chappel Viaduct. The Victorian viaduct, with its 32 arches and total length of 346 metres, is thought to be the second largest brick built structure in England. It was built between 1847- 1849 as part of the Colchester and Stour line of the Eastern Counties Railway. It is still used today to link Marks Tey and Sudbury.
Located at the Viaduct is the East Anglian Railway Museum, a complex of Victorian buildings bringing to life the story of the Eastern Counties Railways from 1840- 21st century.'
