11752473_10153078548540922_6177955093866792337_nI am dead tired. Who would have known that living the vagabond lifestyle would be this exhausting? Exhausting but at the same time exhilarating. A long post will deal with everything tomorrow when I’m rested but as a teaser I can tell you it involves police, the best hamburger ever, improvised wrenching, assholes, perfect roads, navigators and Nite Ryderz…

11694768_10153068740940922_3903584028508944131_nDo you remember the old Honda CBR that I rebuilt during the cold winter months? No? No surprise, I hardly remember her myself, having neglected her for so long with the exception of a few feeble attempts at getting her to run again. It’s time to make a real effort though. I recently got a 34 part set of all o-rings needed for sealing the carbs properly so hopefully I’ll have those leaking carbs fixed in no time.  Fortsätt läsa Vacation work

11402999_10153034536650922_3765784577274544415_nWhat a day! First it was ”take your bike to work”-day, or at least I rode the bike to work. Great opening. In the evening I did some shopping and got my hands on some Lindstrands gear, more specifically the enduro pants Lindstrand Lizard, Berglund limited edition, and the gloves Lindstrands Flex. I was going for the Comet gloves but opted for the somewhat more expensive Flex due to their palm sliders given the recent turn of events (my hands still hurt from the accident).  After that it was time for some riding and trying out the gear… Fortsätt läsa Lindstrands Lizard, Berglund limited edition: First look

TomTom Bandit and the working instrument display

vlcsnap-2015-06-27-10h26m14s179I just felt I had to bring some proof to the table. Proof that I actually got a working display now. And since I began my testing of the TomTom Bandit action camera, why not combine the two? So far I have only managed to test the camera in low light conditions, like really low light, and on two different settings: 720p/120 fps and 1080p/30 fps.

11392967_10152986377220922_191101911469745713_nIt’s important to listen to your body. But sometimes you have to tell it to shut up and do what’s best for your soul. And, as everyone who’s ever tried it knows, nothing is better for your soul than riding. Why do you even say that you ride a bike? You ”soul a bike”. Yes, I now declare a new verb to have been created in honor of motorcycles everywhere. Fortsätt läsa One more on the list

Steady as she goes

IMG_5620From having lived and breathed wrenching to no avail during the winter, I’ve decided to approach it somewhat differently: shorter but more productive sessions. The last evenings have been like that. Short enough to be focused all the way, and still giving me time to do that other stuff some people call life. Today I adjusted the timing, at least I think I did… Fortsätt läsa Steady as she goes

13353_10152968507585922_3523615663213656671_nSomedays you just have to ride. You feel it in your bones, like a primal scream wanting to be let out. It might be a general uneasiness, a thing at work, a relationship issue or financial troubles. Whatever it is, you just know that the only cure is an awesome ride. Today wasn’t really one of those days for me, but when you’re in a club and someone needs to ride, you ride!  Fortsätt läsa Ride or die

Taking the right turn

10394775_10152966104740922_1407455755062982953_nAs some of you remember, I had the MOT inspection two days after having brought the KTM 690 Enduro home. The night before I struggled with getting all the required lights (turn signals, plate light and so on) and managed to break the rear right turn signal. So I failed the inspection but without any requirement to go back to reinspect the bike after having corrected that problem. Well, I’ve been slacking off on that ”correcting the problem”-part but today I finally got around to do it. Fortsätt läsa Taking the right turn
