Once again, only three Shamans rode out to the mountain lake, perhaps such a mystical trip has a component of numerology? Perhaps next year we can make it seven then?
Sandro joined us on his perfectly stock Honda CBR600F, tires down to the canvas and motor oil a little past its prime, but I'm so glad he could come with us.
Witold, still in considerable pain from a broken throttle hand, chose an incredibly futuristic Honda CN250 Spazio, duly thrashed it and was faster than a lot of sports bikes we encountered along the way:
He is the Psychopomp! He manifested himself to guide us across layers and ripples of reality! Make an offering of the sacred herb to him, and all will be well:
|Who's a good boy? YOU'RE A GOOD BOY!!|
Here are some more from the side of my head.
Taking in the view at Salto:
Getting things moving:
Grassy lanes? No problem:
It's ok, this doesn't mean what it means in Britain:
Offroading on the Spazio, not for the fainthearted:
Behold, the majesty of this wonderful lake and the Holy Mountains that surround it:mountain rally last month, made for a good shakedown and real-world test of the newly assembled top end.
I can safely say that this engine has never run so well (and that clutch upgrade is working a real treat, lemme tell ya).
Even Witold had to concede that it sounds spectacular, does not burn oil and feels (even at a distance) purposeful and precise. Hats off to SRM, once again.
Until next time, safe trips to everyone.
