Weekend ride
« on: April 14, 2019, 05:21:02 am »
Rode my FT500 to a motorcycle rally about 300Km from home. Had a great ride on quiet roads in great Autumn weather. Checked out the dam er 'puddle' on the way. Had a few stops for a stretch and drink and had a leasurly ride home clocking nearly 700Km.

Went for a 200Km ride today with my son and his new (to him) 2017 SWM 440 Turismo. Great day, empty roads and a bit of bonding.

Went on the local clubs rally ride and look what parked next to me. This is the first white FT I have ever seen, all the others have been red or black.

Took my FT to a local show and shine. I parked next to the little SL125 chopper that I built about five years ago, now owned by another club member.

Went to the rally again this year. On the way home the engine was giving signs of carb problems and when home found the foam air filter had fallen apart and was blocking the intake screen. Have now gone back to a paper element.

Seem to recall Canadian models may be white.

Have seen pictures of white UK models too. Very rare here in Australia.
