Little journey in to choosing a motorcycle, preparing for a long haul by myself, and the joy of getting her ready on the road for this incredible journey!
got her for this big trip, she’s so big and heavy, i could not even lift her, when she kissed the ground few times. I mean, this Yamaha Tenere, 660cc was awesome, but too big and powerful. moved on…
She’s an old friend. I have taken her on few rides in India. I knew, she’s going to be troublesome…so, moved on!
found this sheila…Finally my search was over! picked her up from a cattle farm. not been looked after.
Good clean, full service, rego, stripped apart, work began at Josh’s garage with minimal tools. I had a drill, Jigsaw and rivet gun. Of course, found a old door for bench top and nice atmosphere from Josh and Jill’s house in Preston.
Panniers built with recycled road signs and sikaflex automotive for vibration and S.S rivets. lots of hard work with jigsaw and r gun to figure out the best possible way of securing the panniers.
then, middle of somewhere – this happens. Panniers and other extra fittings fabricated by me, take the grunt and survived for another day!…well, journey continues….
