An Alcatraz led by fools and enforced by an increasingly militaristic police force

But it is a beautiful and quiet Alcatraz Chris.

In contrast,I drove into the village (first time in 3 weeks),put on my mask and gloves,used the sanitiser at the entrance to the supermarket,did the shopping,paid by Paywave,sanitised on exit and drove home-Such is life in Alcatraz at the moment.

We are apparently still allowed to ride for "exercise" reasons, so it's good to see you're out.

I hope the bike stays as enjoyable for years to come.  :2afro:

I recently purchased the hybrid CX650/500 (CX650 frame with 500 Euro motor) back from my mate Terry who had purchased it from me around ten years ago. Terry's health has made it nearly impossible for him to ride any more and the bike had only traveled 500Km's in the last two and a half years.

My intention is to put it on historic rego this week and as the weather was nice today I thought I would take it for a ride up the Putty road to Greygums cafe and then back home, a trip of around 160Km's. I did this same ride last weekend on my NT700 Deauville as it is a nice ride to do on a motorcycle.

Today's ride was one of the best I have had in quite a long time. The bike ran well for most of the trip, after not wanting to rev beyond about 5,500 when I left home (I had already warmed the bike up). I really enjoyed NOT being behind a large fairing that blocks all the wind. Being in the wind was actually quite pleasant and I am sure I will be taking this CX on more rides as the time allows.

This CX has a Marzocchi rear mono-shock and it handles very well in the twisty corners of the Putty road. Cruising at the speed limit was quite easy although it does lack the torque of my NT700 and CX500 Turbo when climbing extended hills.

When I got home I drained the oil from the engine and rear final drive and treated the CX to new oil all round and I even greased the pro-link suspension via the grease nipples I installed some years ago. I will need to overhaul the rear master cylinder as the rear brake is a bit soft and I might even treat it to some fresh fork oil too.

I am looking forward to spending more time on this bike in the future.

From memory one end anchors on the fixed bracket and the other on the bikini fairing.

This allows you to remove the two screws that hold the fairing on and then pivot the fairing down so you can work on the headlight without totally removing the fairing.
