Re: 2019 somewhere warm

Was thinking last couple of weeks in July, maybe first week of August. Undecided whether to ride all the way down (boring) or catch ferry to north Spain (£) which is what I did when visiting S Spain a couple of years ago. More into a gentle potter around than blasting around the place.

Re: Destination Alps ( and some other places along the way)

Great write up so far.

I spent a fun couple of weeks this summer exploring the ski resorts round the Aosta Valley in Italy I've skied in over the years and it was strange trying to recognise places I thought I knew when they were all green rather than white.

Re: European breakdown cover

I bought single trip cover from these guys this summer but can't comment on it's effectiveness as despite my greatest efforts the Guzzi ran faultlessly, cover provided by Axca so had some degree of confidence.

Re: Leather gloves in need of TLC

Local stables / country supplies will have oils for treating leather tack, find it's brilliant on gloves and similar.

Japan, as much for the culture as the riding.

Re: Radiator technical advice

If a thin coat of paint is going to give you a problem then the corrosion caused by no paint will probably give you the same problem so I'd go ahead and give them a coat of matt black from a rattle can.

I wouldn't advise brush coating with hammerite however. :o

Re: Removing oil residue from aluminium tank

Do you know anyone with an ultrasonic cleaning bath? If so use whatever cleaning solvent you want to try but fill and seal the tank then put it in the bath, might help remove those ingrained residues deep in the walls.
