The weather this morning was so much better than the forecast said (and it will get pretty bad the coming days) that I just had to take the CB out for a ride, despite a light fever. If you look at the photo’s you can see a trend: I  am starting to get the hang of unpaved roads. There’s a few around here that are legal to ride and they’re always nice and quiet.

Two things changed on the CB. One is the exhaust. I welded an end cap on it and the bike sounds so much better now. It sounded great before, but very loud, now it’s a nice, muted but warm, sound. The other is the timing cover. FB-stuff send me a clear timing cover to try on the CB. The quality of the cover is excellent, it comes with a really nice gasket and some really nice bolts. It’s really cool to see the points at work. Nice. I’ll post some more photos of it soon.

It’s really cool to see the points at work. But now I will have to replace the dodgy screws and bolts 😉

I met up with my girlfriend in the woods.

    >I love FrankenBike's new timing cover. It's much better quality than his old ones.

    >I don't know the old cover, only this one. I am very impressed with the overall quality, including bolts and gasket. He told me he will be getting better material for the clear part (I don't see anything wrong with it, but better is always better of course). So if you like the looks, I would definitely recommend anyone to buy one.
