And a nice trip into the surrounding mountains on Friday.

Me ? spending ??...nada ;-)

Bought the bike as it is...Euro 4400 ..and very happy with that...:D

I think the modification cost alone would be in the range of 6-8K Euro ...and with only one former owner and 22000 km on the IMO...??:thumbup:

Hi,
The trip home was made the easy way... rode it from Cuneo to Allessandria and took the autotrain to Hamburg....the trip from Hamburg to Hirtshals in Denmark was nice...at least parts of it...starting with 8 degrees and drizzle and became sunnier and a bit warmer in Denmark. Because of delays in the customs when arriving Kristiansand in Norway, I was not on the road before 0300 in the morning...
Then it was 2-3 degrees and the 250 km's home to Stavanger was VERY cold.
I had with me a modified car seat warmer that I have made so it would fit under my riding jacket, but when I had asked Boano to make me a 12V connection for a sigaret lighter plug, they possible thought that would be for my Garmin Mapsource 60 GPS only and put inline on the wires a small fuse...so when I connected the heating pad..the fuse went...and no larger spares in reserve :mad:....the coldest I have felt in many ...many years ...
Stopped every half hour and jumped to get som warmth back and put my gloves on the engine to warm them up a bit too.

Regards
