Hi all, been quiet here on the Vara pages this week!
Any way, just thought I'd let you all know I fired up the Vara for the first time since I put the Vara off the road first sign of salt on the roads, around mid November.
So, well coated with ACF50, prep pro and WD40, cover pulled over and tied down that's it till spring. I like to start the bike in between to make sure the battery's ok, get fresh petrol into the pipes and make sure oil's splashed around the engine and gearbox. It started first crack within a couple of turns of the engine, sat there idling perfectly, never missed a beat! Plenty of smoke off the pipework due to the liberal coating of protection but ran fine none the less!
I can't wait to get the mighty Vara back on the road, damn I miss the bike.
Took the Kawasaki out for a run, instead and it will now be appearing in the local sales rag next week, good God I hate that bike!
As a side note, Fiona's Beemer refused to start, flat battery! It went off the road same time as the Vara but has been started since then. The battery was new last spring so I'm not impressed!
