After riding in near 70F this weekend, It's chuffing cold and minus temps today, so I plugged in its little battery charger!

What did you do with yours?

Having spent hours washing off the road salt and cleaning the chain I think the bike will be staying in the garage until we see a dry road!

I decided to bring it to the dealer this morning for some installation but made a u-turn after encountering heavy traffic jam

Took her out for a quick blat.
A friend (who hadn't seen her yet) rang me and said to head over to his place to check out his new (secondhand) bike.
So of course I took her over there to show her off too!
This is what he got. Very patriotic eh? And he's an Aussie!!!
At least it's a V-Twin!

After fitting the carbon hugger (6 long weeks for delivery from Germany!!), I'm ashamed to say I left the Diavel in the garage because I took delivery of a Husqvarna TE511 Enduro bike. Good fun off road.

Nice looking enduro. Too bad it's so tall at a 37.7 seat height I'd do better using it as a ladder. :(

Took her for a 130km ride. Weather is perfect here 28/82 degrees and partly cloudy. My friend tried my the Diavel first time in his life, and his smile was revealing that we will have a new Diavel rider soon as well...

Finally my paddock stand arrived. This is the one I got together with the 40mm pin.
Fits like a glove!

OhDiavelGirl,
It is very high, so there's a knack to getting on and off!
Great bike, very capable off road.
