Winter mo(o)ds 2017/18

This winter has been long and filled with new challenges – so the Monster hasn’t received so much love as it deserves. I got a new job (after 24 years in my old job), and we have been trying to sell our house. Those two things took must of my energy and time, but I did manage to do one… Read more →

Nærsynede politikere

(This one is in Danish because the subject is our stupid nearsighted politicians rules about lane splitting and parking in the city) Politikerlede, et begreb alle politikere kender, men som ingen åbenbart formår at håndtere. Kom nu ind i kampen kære politikere, og gør noget ved den lede i skaber i befolkningen… Ville også være rart hvis de nogen gange… Read more →

My riding gear

Each of us have our own definition on what is the appropriate gear for riding. Your climate zone also has a lot to say on practical gear – heat, rain, cold weather, wind all play a part in what’s needed for a good ride. The fact that both being too cold or hot can be outright dangerous also plays a… Read more →

Winter mo(o)ds 2016/17

What’s not to dislike about winter? The whole winter concept is flawed – I want to ride, not hiding inside waiting for warmer weather… The only thing making it bearable is the fact my bike is winter parked in my living room. That inspires me to look for mods for my bike for the next season.   Bar end mirrors:… Read more →

Bikers prayer

I’m not really into religion, and I do not pray to invisible friends. On the other hand I do wish to be spared, and spare my loved ones, of loss and hurt. So I do hope all the below things turn out true for me and all who rides.   May your bike always start and run well without any… Read more →

Embarrassing

Went out seeing some friends of on their tour to Spain. You can watch a video of that in the video section. On the way back the low fuel indicator came on – I thought that I could easily make it home, but 3 km from my home I ran out of fuel 🙁 Not my finest moment but luckily… Read more →

Dyno

Went to Open House at Stevens MC, a local motorcycle (Triumph) dealer. They offered me a dyno check for 100 Kr (13€) and of course I took the offer. Here is the result.   The torque curve could be better so I guess a full tune up, including mounting a Power Commander is next step. Now I just have to… Read more →

Cam Setup

I finally got a cam – I bought a Drift HD Ghost – not the S model as it cost twice as much. Sound is going to be an issue as the internal microphone in the cam is useless because of wind noise. I already have my helmet fitted with an n-com B5 Bluetooth communication device, and I’m not to… Read more →

Wheelie on the Monster

Got a little impatient with traffic today. This in combination with me watching downshift83‘s wheelie videos yesterday made me (courageous enough to?) do a wheelie in front of my work place – good thing I didn’t tip over or anything embarrasing 😀 It wasn’t exactly my first wheelie, but the first time i really wanted to do it. Now I… Read more →
