winter camping

Post by deadgrass. » Fri Feb 09, 2018 5:57 pm

just doing the final preps to the bike for a winter rally,
thought i would see what it weighs

Image

front 75.5kg

Image

rear 135kg

Image

it shows 15kg but its been round once 120 kg is zero

also done a bit of weatherproofing to coil

Image

Image

despite all the weight and me aboard it rode straight and true up to the legal limit, 8-)

sometimes your front legs need to be stiff and the fur on your arse vertical.

Here's my 1981 R100RT ready to tomorrow accompany Dave to the Elefantentreffen at the Nurburgring.

A 94000 miles, 37 year old motorbike, and icy/snow packed German roads; what could possibly go wrong?

Correction - to the Altes Elefantentreffen in middle Germany (not the similarly named Elefantentreffen in southern Germany). Clear?

Allowing 110 kg for the rider plus 76 kg plus135 kg the total would be 321 kg Gross Vehicle Weight from MT350 manual is 366 kg or 808 lb Front/ Back split 37.5/ 62.5 or 137kg/229kg but that includes rider

The military spec would be to cope with two soldiers plus kit
