Just another ailment to contend with —
He said no worries – it was only bursitis and the flaking skin was a sign that it was getting better —
Yehh! I’ll take that and still enjoy my X-ADV750 to reach those far off places for the foreseeable future 👍
I took a run round here on the X-ADV750 this morning —
The view to the west is to die for – but just over the fence – bottom right – is where the gamekeeper shot my cat and left it there full of lead pellets from his twelve bore for me to find —
Seventy two years is a long time to carry a grudge but I still haven’t forgotten or forgiven him — 🥺
Had a few hours off today – so what better than to disappear over the horizon on the X-ADV750 —
Took a spin on the X-ADV750 yesterday – down to the Suzuki dealer in Fife on the hunt for a pair of summer gloves —
A detour into the old quarter of Abernethy saw me parked by the war memorial across from the McClootie Dumplin shop —
Half an hour later – with a tasty scone and black coffee in the sun under my belt – I was back on the main road to Cupar where I found the perfect pair of Extra Large X3 summer riding gloves for my shovel sized mitts.
All told I managed to pack in an interesting trip of mainly back roads plus a detour over the Tay Bridge and through Dundee – of about 140 miles on a bright but blustery day – nice one 😎
Do I go green and fill up with E10 fuel – or – have sympathy for the metal – pay the exorbitant price asked and put in the High Performance E5?
With the new X-ADV returning over 70 mpg it doesn’t seem too excessive to squeeze a few litres into it’s supposed 13 litre capacity tank.
It’s a different kettle of fish with the six years old Yeti. I don’t suppose it’s motor was designed for E10 Ethanol laced fuel but at over 70 quid per tankful it’s going to be quite a thought to fill her with the expensive option.
Perhaps ask Greta what she has to say about it – apart from Blah – Blah – Blah —
