Though I do wonder if he plans on using it to vacuum the roads?!? (see air intakes)
Love it! I hope he'll send me some more photo's, I'd especially like to see more of his cockpit. Very special, very original and great looking.

What could possibly go wrong?
Well, this could go wrong:
Zoran got a nail in his tire. 'Repairing' it took som much time I had to take off straught after, because I was supposed to go to the place where we worked on the Virago to move all the stuff to Vincent's new house. So I took the BMW (Even more fun to ride than the CB).
What could possibly go wrong?
Well, It died. The BMW died a couple of hunderd meters before I got to my destination. A short look in the tank made it very obvious what had caused the BMW to die:
the Tank 'Cure' was dissolving and clogged up my petcocks. Nice. NOT. Also good to know that I had to get back home as well, another 30 miles or so.
Yep, not a good day. But wait, it could still get worse. And so it did.... We loaded all the tools and metal onto a trailer and tried to start the Virago to move everything to Vincent's place. Tried to start it, because it didn't get any fuel. After a quite a while we found out that one of the fuel hose clamps was to tight so no fuel could come trough. So we started the bike and off we went:
That's me on the Virago. I got as far as 7 kilometers, exactly halfway. Then it died. Gearbox seemed to be totally gone and the engine wouldn't run anymore. Great.
We had to go back later to pick it up with the trailer.
So no, today was NOT a good day, although the BMW did manage to get me back home (all be it only just).

I am trying to get larger photo's on the blog, so I changed the layout. I like the larger photo's, but I am not too happy with the layout (I am missing the links on the left the most, they are now all the way at the bottom). Not sure if I will keep it this way.

Incredible. It must be the climate.... But I got another email from southern Europe, from an Architect from Portugal: João. He send me pictures of his first build, a very, very tidy and cool BMW cafe. João, congratulations on your first build, very cool!!
