With the end of the Carpathian's trip in summer 2019, 3 weeks following the Carpathians from Slovakia to Macedonia and coming back through the Balkans and the Alps, Fosca (my GSA) was quietly asking for some love.
If you ride enough you know how things goes below the helmet. "What is this noise", "I feel the front wheel vibrating, has to be that rock in that offroad path, I hope is not the rim", "it's not the rim, it's the break discs", "no, it's the rim"...
I decided that with the starting of the 2020 I will address as much "historical" issues of the bike as possible. I have list, that I am filling during the trips. I just wanted to scratch some bullet points.
But when you don't own a bike shop, or you're not rich, things take time: looking at the second hand market, searching for the right part in the right place with the right price... And then you need to find the moment to actually do the fix. Time is not something that one always have.
I am not constant enough to maintain a blog.
I built a forum dedicated to my Honda VTR 250, still alive and in Spanish, but lives unmaintained and barely visited.
I built a blog dedicated to my Suzuki GSR 600, that vanished already years ago.
I built a twitter account to my Honda VFR 800, that stays online and forgotten.
I then switched to a blog for me as a biker, and discovered the limitations of Tumblr and my irregular posting.
I had enough. I built a profile single page with a contact form and stop.
... but I missed to share my thoughts, some places I discovered, and some mototravelling improvements I did here and there. So I iterated that profile single page to host just a bit more. Not too much, not too strict, just fun.
And here we are 😊
