My slanted Life

Month: March 2017

Sun, cold kitchen, tires low

For days I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do at the WE.

The problem: Sun and heat are announced, but my Versys is not yet in the repair. And so I would have to do ride with a damaged front fender (no real problem as it still holds fast- Gaffertape for the win! ;-)), but also with an almost profilous rear tire.
Yes, Versya was bad in the last year, and the attempt to drive the tire really to the limit now revenges itself.

On the other hand, sun also means: No rain! And if there is no rain, I need no profile at the tire – now, once just  forget about the traffic laws   😉
So risk was weighed:

Will the police wait for me? -> Yes, as the start of the season is to be expected, they will not miss the opportunity for easy prey.
Will it catch me? -> No, as I avoid the usual “biker” main routes, I don’t think so .

Why I then just choose the Kalte Kuchl (translate to: Cold Kitchen, a famous bike meeting point south of vienna) as a waypoint, is, in retrospect, actually a mystery to me….
It probably just slipped between accidentally. And since I have already visited it now, I do not have to ride down there for  the rest of the season. Puhhh, thats releaving 😉

Probably I was just too late to get into the catches of the traffic control at all . I met quite a few police cars, but these were obviously already on the way home, when I arrived at about 17:30 in the KK.
There were only 2 motorbikes still on site, so I could go on with my lap.
As expected,  the name was program: It just had 7 ° temperature there and on the further way home the temperature should not rise above 9° again. Definitely not icy cold, but with time, the coolness creeped slowly into all cracks.

The route was all the more beautiful, the roads were for the most part – have I already mentioned that I basically avoid the main routes? – very beautifully cleaned, and the sun, combined with the clear air, colored the sky blue, the wood green, the meadows too. Actually a postcard mood! And so I stopped  – quite unusual for me – to take photos along the tour.

Despite the late start, thanks to  summer time, there was still enough daylight  left to ride home relaxed and go through the last corners with my PiPo 3.
But this week it’s his turn to be exchanged, promised dear race managment!  😉

(Deutsch) Erste Ausfahrt 2017

The sun, slowly she breaks through the thick grey clouds above Vienna, and so enabling a warmth, we haven’t felt in months.
Long time ago I wrote in the blog, that I am on search for a winter project.  As you know it was the  transformation  of Juniors enduro to a supermoto.
After a long, horrible working week, bad news in row, it was high on time to enjoy the weekend with the newly constructed SuperMoto.  🙂

First time I could do a test was with the Ice crystal rally The result wasn’t to bad, still there were some adjustments to make. Rim Stickers, horn, brake light, blinker indicators, dB eater and speedometer were not installed properly, or not functioning, but in the meantime, most of them are fixed and so we could start for our first road trip of the season.

Of course, junior was there, and although he was not allowed to ride on his own bike due to the missing A2 upgrade (in November, of course, he hadn’t an opportunity), he did not want to miss out on this marvelous ride. And we had a short opportunity for him to ride it too. 😉

As mentioned above, a few things are missing, among others the dB Eater is still not dived.
We had dismounted it before the last EBR and after that we still did not miss it 😉 , But on the road, the relatively noisy exhaust sound was going on my nerves and i didn’t want to be responsible for road closing too. Therefore I did a silent run in sme sections, reducing the fun. The police then stood on every street corner, making the trip exciting too. To be constantly on guard was a new experience. 😉





Our trip was not too long, just 2 hours took the trip around the southwest area of Vienna. I wanted more but Junior with his 125cc VanVan wasn’t able to follow the whole time, so we kept it short.
But, it was perfect weather and the streets were in a very good condition, what more does Versya want?
