    Doughnuts

    Well, a five hour round trip, missed all the organised stuff, but had a chat with people, a lovely early afternoon nap on the bales, watched the first footie match. Witnessed synchronised final drive oil changes from the ford ride participants.

    But best of all - those doughnuts. Worth the trip and more on their own. I made the most of it and had two. Well, three.*

    What a great event. I'm really disappointed I couldn't make a weekend of it. Next year, definitely.

    Here you go:



    (The picture looks better because it was taken in sunlight. Apologies to the chap I don't know at whom I barked "Get out of my light!" We all have to suffer for our art...)

    I saw this in motorway services. Along with the Guzzi Le Mans at the Horgraost, they are the two bikes I lusted after aged 8 - 13.

    This might be a thick question, but why does the oil change colour? I assume it's a watertight seal (to stop the oil escaping in the first place) so if the oil can't get out, how does the water get in?

    1150's have a breather that allows oil out (and water in ).

    If water gets in then it ends up looking like that, as the gears mix it like a very fast egg beater. The clean oil does have a green tinge.

    I await correction but I think it's called an emulsion

    It's only takes a few drops of water to emulsify oil, so it looks worse than it is.
    I made a simple breather venting under the seat on my 1150 to avoid this.
    Just remove the black breather plug, use a short piece of hose (garden hose pipe fits) with a reducer on one end and length of 6mm pipe from there

    Vern had a similar idea 7 years ago... but I guess it's too early yet to expect to see the finished item
