And there you go! As of 7th June 2009, I have finally driven 100 000 km with my Aprilia Pegaso Cube 1997!!! It is really a great satisfaction, if you think that the engine has never been opened! So here we go with the 100 000 km maintenance: Cooling liquid replaced Air filter replaced And […]

Motorcycle summer tour 2008

After many years without having a proper biking trip, this summer I tried to get back the feeling of long journeys. And I have to say I managed to do it pretty well. With a total amount of 2224 km spanned in ten days, the trip day by day was as follows: 18.7. Oulu – […]

Pegaso’s check-up: 94 000 km

While approaching the one hundred thousand kilometres (!!!) with my good ol’ Pegaso, I’ve decided to keep trace of the checks and repairs that are done on the bike.
