PostSubject: First real Ride   Tue Apr 08, 2014 7:28 am

On Sunday I rode my wing to Warwickshire to attend the Laverda Owners Club AGM.
I left Epsom in Surrey at about 8.15pm in the pouring rain.
This is the first real ride out I have had since buying it in November 2013 with 700 miles on the clock.
Most of the ride was on motorways and I found that there was a lot of wind buffeting, for the most part I was travelling at or near the legal speed limit (70mph)
Having read the posts about the Givi adjustable screen I think I will have to get one.
The bike ran like a dream and I was very pleased with it.
Before my trip I change the oil and filter and the transmission oil.
The traffic was very light except on the way home there was a bit of a build up on the M25.
The rain made it very difficult to see as the stock screen is not high enough to take the rain over the top of your head.
I would recommend anybody visiting the UK to visit Warwickshire and the surrounding area.
I would like to thank everybody who has contributed to the technical guides on the forum they have proved very useful.
Honda are unable to supply me with a workshop manual as they no longer list one so I will need to rely on the expertise on the forum.

Hi Ron, I recently {Feb.this year} got a workshop manual for my '07 Wing from www.manualwizard41@gmail.com.Cost was USD45.00 inc. postage.Might be worth a shot.

ronslaverda, there is an owners Manual for sale on Ebay. Put FJS 600 as your search( i think it is £10). Smile I was out on Sunday it rained most of the day here as well!.

The countryside around you sounds wonderful. Here in S. Arizona we  can ride 340+ days a year with no rain. What we have is heat and plenty to go around. Maybe we can make a trade, some heat for a bit of rain. Enjoy the ride.
