In Loki’s Wood Today —

Looks great —

Even Loki thinks so —

but it got a rough time in the recent storms —

with many trees blown down —

but there’s still enough to go round —

and we had it all to ourselves today —

Loki certainly enjoyed it 😉

X-ADV 750 Love Affair —

It was love at first sight when I saw the grey 2021 model Honda X-ADV750 I had on order last year —

I somehow averaged 1000 miles per month in the first six months of riding her and apart from a minor problem with the plastics she has been spot on —

Rannoch falls is just one of the picturesque places she has taken me to – hard to believe I rode my Honda trials bikes up that waterfall in days gone by —

There’s not a lot of changes between my previous black n white 2019 X-ADV and the latest model but enough to make a difference. The new seat is easier to live with and the upgrade to gear ratios are of benefit too —

The claimed 3kgs weight loss over the lardy earlier X-ADV is barely noticeable and the slimmer front end on the latest model with the plastics wrapped tighter around the frame and rad could probably explain why the bodywork doesn’t fit as well as it should – pity I can’t convince the powers at be at Honda they have a problem —

No Worries – all being well we will be back on the road soon and wracking up a few more miles —
