Service and a test ride.

Our GS was due for a bit of a thorough service: all fluids, brake pads/shoes, electrics, carburetters, valve clearances, etc.

As it turned out, it was time to replace a not trivial component: the driveshaft.

These carry a hefty price tag, but then again they cover a lot of ground before they're due for replacement. This one did in excess of 150,000 kilometers. Not bad.

And to test the bike fresh from its overhaul, my folks decided to go on a wee bit of a test ride... all the way to freaking Portugal and back! Ride on guys!

I'm not sure if that's a reflection on dad's helmet, or a particularly good kapalabhati...

UPDATE: in Lisbon now!
