Ridin The “T” and the “Okay”: Early Spring Experience


Bought out on the K100 the opposite day for the primary time since
January. She ran nice ! I stored the battery up by giving it a cost
each couple weeks for a pair hours .I additionally did an oil change utilizing
Shell Rotella 15/40 .I heard it has numerous detergent so I figured I might
give the within of my motor a shower.She has a shade below 27,000 miles on
her.Had 12,000 on it once I first bought her on the highway in 2018 after the
earlier proprietor let her sit in his son’s heated basement for 15 years. I
at all times did oil modifications each 3000 miles so it is most likely actual clear in
there however you by no means know and in addition to I may head out on a kind of
months lengthy cross nation tenting journeys together with her.Been itching to hit
the highway on one among these since simply earlier than Covid struck.Been looking out
for a driving associate for this journey too however with no luck so I could need to
go it alone.At 73 I might like some firm however nonetheless capable of do it on my
personal so.The 2 questions are : Do I’m going on the 1988 K100 or the 1975 Moto
Guzzi 850-T and is 2022 the yr I truly take this experience ? Been
desirous to go  and desirous to go for what looks as if eternity. I do
handle to get to experience 400 miles as much as my camp in Northern NY nevertheless it’s
not a cross nation experience the place I am on the market for a pair months dwelling
on a bike.So the search continues as I get each these bikes prepared.
The MG is extra snug , lighter and decrease so I am leaning in the direction of
it. The Okay is tall considerably prime heavy however I actually prefer it too. It is a
robust name.
