Alex. You have been having entirely too much fun. Consider yourself on report and under surveillance by the authorities. Why, that music alone is a misdemeanor. Don't even think about doing that kind of law breaking in Hiawassee. Greg grin :bigt

Absolute gem of a bike Alex.

I see from the start of the vid though that you still don't trust the oil to stay on the inside where it belongs. wink

You know...it's funny that that was on the video,particularly right at the beginning. I thought I had heard a rattle or something and we had just had some misadventures with mounting a camera on the bike so I wanted to make sure we hadn't forgotten some mounting strut or something. The mounts weren't up to the vibration levels and shook loose a couple of times. There are a couple of short clips in the video from that camera (kinda wavy and vibratey...really short) but most of it was useless.

Funny though, the metisse is my most oil-tight bike, probably because I haven't been into it.

laughing That's one of those things that we can say about ourselves, but would be a bristly insult if someone else said it without a smile!

Looking and sounding good on the video!

I'll believe that it's a crisis when the people who tell me it's a crisis start acting like it's a crisis ...
