A Newyears Day Spin on the Old Lady
« on: January 01, 2014, 17:09:14 »
First day of the year 2014, beautiful weather. The Honda XL1000V Varadero still lies on the Optimate IV, but the good old 28yrs young XLV750RF lacks every form of modern technology and just does what it was meant to do... Turn the ignition, push the starter and RUN, with no additional help from outside; even if she was hibernating for the last 2 months...  ;D

Had a wonderful 75km ride today on the Old Lady. I simply LOVE these rugged old Honda's!

Two Plugs,

I envy you. But today I was unable, because of yesterday VCIF_a025, to ride my Dero.

Greetings from the South of Germany ...
