    Not a lot... started the Spada up after it has been sitting for 3 weeks... first kick and it runs like a charm.. took it for a quick tootle up our street and back.. just to make sure the new brakes are working nicely.. :)
    Then sorted out taking pics of the CB250 and the engines etc to put them up for sale..

    But those extra 24 hp cost $110k, and are only useful after 300kph with it that light. Just bragging rights. Very expensive bragging rights.

    Won't stop them from selling out...

    Wait a couple of years and buy one with 2000km on it from a latte sipper

    I just thought I'd make the offer as I'd be able to send it as a gift or low price so taxes would be less was all

    I FINALLY got around to swapping out my flapping, noisy, frozen link chain on the 650, and put the correct sized sprocket on the front (Speedo runs off the output). That's better. Now I have to sort the engine issue - splutters when cold, does quite seem right, vibrations at around 4k rpm.

    I was a little distracted this week by a different "motor bike."
    IMG_20200128_174002.jpg
    Specialized have a bunch of these Levo Turbo, electric-assist bikes traveling around the state. So I went to borrow one for an afternoon to ride the trails, but it rained. Got hijacked by my Dad the next afternoon, so I took the bike home and figured I would do a real-world test: ride it to work, via the trails. I'm about 35-40km from work, and I'm not that fit at nearly 40 - I struggled riding to the previous job, and that was 7km, certainly wouldn't ride to work on my mountain bike. About 2hours of ride time, got to work a little late (oops), but it made the commute easy (made 25km/h seem slow and easy), and the trail climbs quick and easy (except for the fire trail, it was too step, the bike had the power, but it would just wheelstand). I know it is off topic, but the electric motorbikes are here and improving, so be prepared for the surprise if you take one for a ride.
