    Question What did you do on your Shiver OR Dorsoduro today ??



    I'll start, although it wasn't today, I took some pics and thought I'd start a thread on what we're all up to on our bikes.............

    Anyway, my mate Strada_Stu treated me to a new bar clamp,.....so here is :-





    You can see the standard one on my signature below. I think it looks miles better now.......

    I was riding like crazy in sport mode for a while,
    later i was having fun riding in the Rain mode.It was really fun especially in the traffic,it reminded me times when i used to ride my Aprilia Sportcity 125, and i was still fast and petrol consumption wasn't too bad.
    Has anyone tested MPG only in rain mode?

    It's already yesterday downunder (0645hrs). Part through a door fixing job when fellow Shiver rider/forum member, Maddad phones to tell me he is touring and in the village. I down tools and fire up the beast for the short ride into colourful Nimbin. We meet (for the first time). John is a little younger than me, but definitely of mature years, he is also about 2000km from home on is mid-life camping odyssey and loving his Shiver. We share coffee and talk bikes and life at my favourite cafe. The street life is happening with major presence of the law including a friendly sniffer dog looking for weed. Time to go and John and I part as brothers linked by common bonds and interests.
    Then back home to finish the door and re-install for my client - she is happy
    Later on my other half sells her Moto Guzzi 750 Nevada to happy, smiling guy who rides off into the sunset. It will be about 7 weeks before her V7 arrives, she's sad but it has been a good day.

    I looked at my DD in the garage because I've been working all day, then took the dog out, then had dinner, then it was 9.30 pm.

    Did you have to leave in a hurry Shekel?

    Funny you would ask about that today. Too busy for pics, but added Mivv Souno slip-ons to a Leo Vince de-cat header system....... now the beast runs too lean, so I need to order a Mem-jet. Also added a new gel seat to the beast.

    Nothing w/ the Shiver this week. Much needed rain got the Mana dirty on the two days I rode it into work this week. I'd rather have 1 dirty than both of 'em!

    unscrewed rebound damping on forks by 1/2 a turn in my quest to try out different suspension settings. Quite dull isn't it!

    how do they feel in comparisson to the standard ones, are they the same position? just thinking this may well be a lot cheaper than buying the aprilia racing ones
