I’m in suspense

Motor Comments Off on I’m in suspense

4014_spinYesterday evening a package got delivered: A new rear suspension kit for my FZ1.

It’s a 4014 Spin, made by WP suspension. A fully adjustable monoshock with fixed reservoir and adjustable preload. The advantages compared to the standard shock:

  • Exceptional cooling properties due to the use of heat diverting aluminium alloys, therefore constant shock absorbtion and longer life
  • High/Low speed compression separately adjustable, each 16 times (256 possibilities in total)
  • Adjustable rebound, 16 positions
  • Adjustable length is standard

Installing the shock must be easy. Hope to have some time this week to do that job.

Mick Høy: Around the world journey

Motor, Travelbug Comments Off on Mick Høy: Around the world journey

mickhoeyThis is my good friend Mick Høy. Mick is from Denmark, but I met him in 2007 in the south of France on Camping Moto. We spent there some days as neighbours and decided to travel back north together.

In May last year Mick invited me to go with him and his danish friends to ride some days in east Germany and in the summer Mick came to The Netherlands to visit the Nijmegen Summerfest.

I will meet Mick again in a couple of days. He will visit me as part of his cunning plan: Riding his bike around the world. He left his parents home on May 1st to travel europe heading south to the next continent: Africa.

Of course Mick will record most of his adventures on the web so we can read his whereabouts:
