    Nelli Lives On

    Done my 1st 30 miles on Nelli this evening in 18 months. Bringing her back from the mechanic.
    Engine transplant.
    Isnt she gorgeous - thats why we spend the money on them to keep them going.
    Special thanks to all forum members for advice - in particular special thanks in this case to Laurence White (for the Engine) and Errol (Enginia)
    whose collective wisdom, and their willingness to share it , keeps all our Benelli's going
    Thanks

    Kevin

    You noticed that !


    On the way back , after 18 months off the bike - I got this urge to adjust the mirror.
    After 18 months I had forgotten why it was crappy in the first place.
    I pushed too hard, and it popped out, smashed to pieces.
    I will see if I can get a piece of glass cut locally today, else I will have to buy and wait for one from Motalia
