Hi again, I´ve some free days and I want to take the chance to update the blog (my umpteenth attempt. I know, I´m probably the worst motorcycle blogger on earth), try to do some pending task on my Yamaha TRX 850 and finish
some too much things that I started and I must to finish it.
|Goodbye Marco! R.I.P|
But on the case of Marco "SuperSIC" Simoncelli I must to add to the sadness of see how he pass away the anger after see the shame actuation of Sepang medical team/track assistants on firsts, and most critical, seconds after crash.
|Goodbye Dan R.I.P. Maybe your loss help to make Cart safer and change some rules.|
My MT-01, with the Yamaha FZ1 and Honda Varadero of a good
friends that I must ride whith them oftener.
I don´t published anything on the blog last weeks and I was un-logged of Facebook but I done some things along this time, I´m still "hooked" by my Yamaha MT-01 (that I use also to go to job) and I done little sunday rides with friends. Three weeks ago I see my first Ducati Diavel in person when I was fuelling my MT, see it live changed my opinion about it (not so good before) and I was talking about the Diavel with the happy owner. Great bike!! (I hope that one of those Italian "Machobike" get a touch of magic from Radical Ducati).
|My father concept of "right light".|
One of these pending tasks that I done was install new lights on garage and some plugs on workbench wall.
With the new "inspirational" light I re-take another classic pending task on my TRX project, finish a final design of the triple clamps to mount R6 forks, calipers and front wheel, buy the stock Aluminium and machining them.
|Yamaha R6r front train assembly.|
I mount the Yamaha R6r front train assembly to check (listening CAMDEN PROJECT, a really good band of a friends. Feed your ears with them HERE on myspace or HERE on soundcloud and join them on Camden Project on Facebook) my sketches and 3d models to be sure all it´s allright and now I have almost finished the design of the triple clamps on 3d with Solidworks. Soon I´ll post about it.
If I don´t have enough things to do and things to finish, of course the TRX, or little things like my road bike that I´m "restoring". I started with my brother Pablo an a electric conversion of one of his bikes, a old Scott mountain bike/ hard tail free ride (I´m not so sure) installing a kit that he bought time ago, replacing another one that he mount but this one with the electic motor on front hub.
This little eBike project it´s now on going but I want (and my impatient bro) finish it along the rest of this week.
Soon I´ll post more info about.
Last weeks I´m also trying to adapt me to use Unigraphics (NX) Siemens PLM software, and his powerful CAM but my first impressions are not to much good. I´m a "integrist" of Solidworks and maybe I´m too confortable on it and I must to open my head (and perhaps my heart) to this German software. I need expend some hours with it and get more experience.....
