I got her out the other day to crank her and run up to temp (it's been a few months since I last took her out ). My daughter was waiting in anticipation of seeing the red bike fire up, when click. Dead battery. Ordered a new one, installed the following weekend, hit the switch and she fired right up. Man I miss riding this bike.

Got a new front tire. Wore the old one out at ECM X. All better now.

Semantics is the difference between "knowing your shit" and "knowing you're shit."

Hey yall. Just bought a Mono that needed basically everything done after sitting for 10 years. After performing the desmo service, I'm starting to install a whole bunch of eye candy. Restoring the wheels with black barrels, found a set of 1100s Ohlins forks, repainting the bodywork and now need to put it all back together!

That's awesome! Did you fabricate it yourself? Are you going to switch out the seat and rear suspension too? I have a mono too and might be interested in doing this some day!

Cheers,

new chain and front sprocket, ride to coast

After 18k miles, the GT's chain started getting stiff links, last Thursday we switched out the front 14t sprocket to a 15t, replaced the chain. I have been torn between sticking with the 14 front (it's had a 14 front since I've owned it) and switching to a 15 for a little more mileage. Forgetting if I actually ordered a 14 or 15, then receiving a 15 made my decision for me.

Sunday I took the bike for a quick overnight ride out to the OR coast.

On the way out to the coast on Sunday, I crossed paths with a motley crew of fellow Italians I know out for a day trip.



On my way home Sunday





According to the butt dyno, it does seem to have lost a tad bit of oomph, but it does seem to have improved 5th & 6th usability for the interstate slogs to get to the twisties. I'll have a better idea of any mileage improvements following my NorCal trip to WCM in a few weeks.
