I'm heading to Hobart for a teacher's professional development (iPads and IOS of all things) I'm thinking of riding the Big Beema Bring More Wallet down for a test ride as I'm just giving her a 50 000k service, replacing all brake lines with Siegler Stainless Steel, installing H7 HID lighting, valve clearance check and... just to be pedantic upgrading the stock suspension to Ohlins Bloody Bring More Wallet is correct... Damn thing has cost me near $2300 just in the above parts...arrggg
If anyone is about in Hobart and would like to go for a ride I'd love to get out for a ride whilst down there and happy arrive a few extra days early ( the weekend before) in Hobart. I'm going to this PD in my own unpaid time during the school holidays, but given all the holidays we teachers get I'm not complaining.
Thought I might share some progress photos on the Big Beema because.... well I know just how much we love bike photos :-)
Time to strip everything off...
That's a fairly decent size fuel tank = 24.5L at 4.3L per 100Km (Has a safety cell style tank)
OMG.... remove all that body work and fuel tank just to access the bloody air filter... all that work for an air filter change
Hope the AGM has gone well, everyone enjoyed themselves and importantly all make it home safely. Hey, Ian whilst I'm in Tassie let's grab a coffee (or dinner) and chat over a possible Tassie AGM
