Leather - Motorcycle Seat

Nice picture from Marius Mellebye showing his leather work.
This is a nice picture to give the idea of how a 'distressed' deep brown leather seat would look like on my Thunderbird!

I'd also like to have contrasting stitching like this (also done by Marius):

Here's another one from him (he's done hundreds):

Next step - find the design to my tooled into the seat!
'Monkey' - is the word....

The Party

It all started with the preparations... How many slices of bread?

So today is the day...
Cake & sandwiches.

But I enjoyed my mug of Puffin tea.

And the interface is good. But I don't know if the schnapps coffee tastes good.

Ride Out With The New Tiger

3 in the afternoon and I'd 'ad enuf! Time to get off on the Tiger...
This time it was back and forth over the Jura hills and ended up at Passwang.

It was a 3½ hour ride - just right to test the seat and ergonomics of the handle bars.

Got back and checked the bike over - saw some small oil drops... It looked like it was a simple drop or two and the wind had sprayed/splashed it around a bit.
Will mention it to the guys when it goes for the first service in the next day or two.

Well we wanted to go up to the Schluchsee and sail around, but everything was closed.
So we drove back to St.Blasien and had a coffee and lunch.

Morning Walk

It's nice and early and I can't sleep...
"Why?", you ask! Well I'll be collecting my new motorcycle later this morning.

So I decided to get up and go for a long walk along the Rhein...
It's blummin chilli! But nice and tranquil.

But that's not stopping me wanting a hot coffee!!!
