    Last ride of the year (I guess) - trying out a gimbal

    Yesterday was probably the last motorcycle ride for this year/season.
    It was pretty cold (about 6 degrees Celsius) but sunny and dry.  :305:

    This was the first time I used a gimbal on a motorcycle. The results are okay but I will try to find better angles/mounting points for the new year/season.

    Beautiful bike and ride.  Mine's already in hibernation (tank brimmed and Octimate attached).

    What are the spped limits through built-up areas there...seems a lot faster (scarier) than here in the UK?  That said...your roads are better quality  :152:

    Mine was hibernating three times earlier last month but...  :305:

    In the built-up area it is usally 50 kph or 30 kph (31mph/19mph).
    Outside the built-up area it is 80 kph or 60kph (50mph/37mph)

    But I might have been driving a little bit faster than that.  :034:

    Enjoyed that Red Boll.  :028:
    Once salt gets laid on our roads my CT gets tucked up for the winter period.

    Thanks!

    I put the motorcycle all the way back in the garage for the winter today :155: .
    This way my car also fits in the garage and I do not have to "de-ice" :190: the windows in the morning.

    My last ride of the year will probably be Saturday, taking it for it’s first MOT. Maybe having my bike registered on the 1st of Jan wasn’t such a great idea.  :112: :112: :112:

    Likewise Hartley,

    Just had mine done, end of November not so clever either. I'll be taking mine two or three months early next year, to hell with the expense !! Lol
