Yep - I took a break over the summer whilst we were away in Portugal. I didn't have a bike to ride there but only my mum's small 1.3L Honda runabout, so it was best to just forget fast things and enjoy other stuff.
Honey-dos. Yeah, we know that stuff too. Sometimes other stuff like spending time with the kids, or working around the house is just more important.
Last weekend I got to spend most of the time tinkering, since before the summer. I took almost an entire day to clean up the CRM250 and fit a complete set of decals and replace the seal on the oil pump which was leaking and causing all sorts of problems, then fitted new reeds and a few other bits before washing my Husky SM450R and doing a few bits to that. Relaxation.
It's still OK for riding here, so about to head off on the Husky into town to run a few errands and have some fun on the way. Then back to work.
Hoping to do some work on the RC next but only after working on our Hiace camper which recently got back from it's body restoration, much more improvement needed there to make it ready to use this winter for snow boarding camping, etc. The SP needs a weekend on various things to perfect it and fitting of more parts that have been gathering ominously under the dining room table. DHC is sending some scoops for it too soon, lovely stuff.
Carlos is flying in soon so we can attend the Motegi Moto GP, so we can cheer on Rossi. Despite liking Hondas best, we want to support Yamahas riders! Should be great fun as in previous years.
