    @michael-eastwood If I’d known you had this on your DR I would have bought it off you before you traded it.

    Oh look, that’s my old bike. Yeah, that AE Motorsports dash is really handy, I’ve had to set up something like that on my CRF1000 so that I can charge stuff as I like.

    Oh, I thought that was @michael-eastwood‘s old bike but I should be abusing you instead @markh.

    The bike is finally back together and ready for business.

    So at 45,000km it’s had new fork oil, new MOTUL engine oil and filter and new chain and sprockets.

    My DR is a great machine all set up to go anywhere but my health means I can’t use it for what its been built for. I’ll keep riding it but if someone wanted to swap a high mileage Super Tenere for the DR I’d be keen. Something more road orientated would suit the riding I am restricted to now, and I want to go back to a shaft drive.

    Took the DR out for a short ride on Sunday, only did about 50km around some local back roads but the change in front fork behavior was noticable.

    I had previously changed the fork oil to 15W to see how that performed and that’s definately too hard and makes the ride really harsh, particularly over small bumps. The 10w oil is a huge improvement.

    Out for a ride today and saw the giant cow in Morrinsville.

    Just up the road is the Tatua Diary Factory with it’s giant can of Diary Whip.
