TLC For Our Lune Whammel —

Our Hede spent last summer in the back garden but she’s not forgotten —

I enjoyed an hour or two washing and sugar soaping the inner hull this afternoon in anticipation of a few sunny days in a row soon – when I kin start splashing paint around —

It’s just too tempting and easy to jump on the X-ADV when the sun shines but a strong enuff guilt trip will see me get the paint brushes out —

You see my dilema 😎

Honda X-ADV 750 – 21 Model —

With 7000 miles on the clock since last May she is going well as long as I don’t run her on neat E10 petrol – that’s when she becomes a bit ‘lumpy’ off the bottom end —

With the DCT clutches she has to accelerate smoothly from tickover as it is impossible to slip the clutch when increasing the revs .

A slight hesitation at this point gives you the feeling that she is going to stall. My answer is to grit my teeth and pay extra for higher octane E5 fuel – 50/50 E5/E10 is ok but neat E10 risks an embarrassing stall.

Somehow I don’t think that E10 petrol is going to save the planet as mpg is significantly less than with E5 so why are we being lumbered with it?

Quick edit; with the benefit of hindsight 🙃

Easy way out is to run her on Standard settings from cold these sub-zero winter mornings and switch to Sport once she’s warmed up. Simple eh 😁

To the Hills with the X-ADV750 —

The sun may have been shining but it was still quite cold out on the bike today —

Here we are looking past Beinn Dorain and over Auch towards the western end of Loch Lyon —

This time I’ve crossed the railway and ignored the ‘PRIVATE’ sign to get an unusual shot back to Ben More —

I thought I knew my old horse drawn farm implements —

but this one has me puzzled?? 🙄

Missing my Plastic Warrior —

The photo was taken at David Stirling’s memorial on the Hill of Row – pronounced roo – on 1st Sept.

Must admit I’m missing my plastic warrior which is still with the Honda agents having some errant bodywork fixed.

No worries … so long as I have her back by Spring 🧐 —
