Nothing amazing here, just had a spin around town with the Z1000 J3 Special mainly to see if the valve cover´s tight
now with new gaskets and it seems ok. Just 2 degrees above zero so a few months left til
drivable weather here in Sweden but still. Oh and Chris Speeding helped with the musik; "Motorbikin"!
:)

I ran the Stockholm marathon back in 2001. The course runs through the city...very scenic. I also visited the Vasa museum ship...very interesting.
I ride Z1's. I have a couple of '75's, plus an '80 KZ1000LTD. My lovely Sweetums rids a 1981 KZ550.

It would have been a lot more exciting if you had shoot that video a week earlier :woohoo:

and for those of you who have ever wondered where I spend my working hours, Marty is riding right by my office before entering tunnel nbr 2. Not that I think anybody has :silly:

haha vad kul Anders ja världen är ju liten! :)

Är du på Regeringskansliet?

Yes a week earlier would have been a lot cockier with all the snow and ice in the streets then,
these tyres are better for it than slicks but would need some studs for that ride...

Minus today again but tomorrow 4-5 plus!!

We got freezing rain last night so I decided to take the day off and not drive the 280 Km round trip to the job, snow expected for the evening rush hours.
Tomorrow better I hope.

Looks great! And you´re roughly 43 degrees latitude in Marseille while I´m 59 in Stockholm, Sweden -
so is this a bit colder than usual for you? and about when do you get spring?

We have had a very up and down Winter with record cold -32.77 C before major wind chill then the next day it went to 8.33 C
Our roads are buckling and the pot holes are everywhere.
Do you salt your roads in Sweden?
Here in Northern Illinois we are crazy for the stuff, it keeps us going but it ruins everything like my poor truck

We have days in January that we can ride but this year who knows, I normally try to be ready to ride by March

We aren't that bad yet but we're getting there, this freeze thaw is killing us.
even if we had a nice day the 1/2 mile drive down our road to black top would coat the bikes in muck :angry:
