Title: Random Snaps
Post by: Puritan on December 09, 2011, 03:04:18 AM
I feel like sharing my favourite place with you. This is my sanctuary. A small river where I can sit down by the campfire and relax. If I'm lucky, I would catch an occasional trout as well  ;)

Damn, always wanted to see the southern sky, full of objects I can never see from here. I think I can spot at least the southern cross, the coalsack nebula and the large magellanic cloud there in your picture.

You need a telescope to hook up with your camera, Commander.
But the prizes are astronomical  :P

That´s beautiful. I don´t know why but every sunset, every lake, every nature shot reminds me to some place I lived when i was 9/10.

This is a picture taken not farther than one mile away of our house (our house in that time). We had the lake in the front of our house and a stream in the back, a boat to go fishing in the evenings and the most plentiful and variated fauna i have ever seen. The best childhood memories.

33.000 hectares. It is a reservoir supported by a hydroelectric dam, a town was sunken when the dam was built, back in the fifties. So you can see the belltower of the church and other high roofs when the dam is opened for long periods.

Spring is here  :)
So it's only a few weeks until I can take my bike out for a ride.
Now, my bike has been through a major overhaul during the winter as you can see from the pics.


It is a:
1982 Kawasaki LTD 1000 ( very rare model here in Norway)

Post by: Gambini on February 24, 2012, 02:30:10 AM
Nice cycle. I´m also a pasionate of old stuff.

Well, we do not agree in motorbike tastes though. While as I really like england bikes like that one and ancient motorbikes in general, there´s a limit for what "I like to admire" and "I´d like to have". The perfect bike for me is an old one, probably from late 60´s or mid 70´s and with all the easiness and functionality of modern bikes. Yes, because IMO motorcycles reached their golden age 40 years ago. There´s nothing a new bike can offer that one of those beast could not.
In the other hand, older bikes weren´t still reliable, versatile and easy to use.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: High Treason on February 24, 2012, 02:58:43 AM
Yeah, that's my best cycle, I have a few more, one of them has parrafin lamps fitted, which means I can't ride into garages at night to buy tobacco anymore. The one in my snap is an unknown brand, it's built of BSA All-weather parts but was probably another brand like New Hudson.

As for motorcycles, heh, I like doing things the hard way and this is no exception, plus, a top speed of 50-55MPH is bound to annoy my friend every time he has to wait for me. I don't think all old bikes were unreliable though, two of my friends own modern scooters - they say they are happy with 125cc and see no reason to go further, at least they are responsible instead of flying down the road on their face :D - made between 2006 and 2008 and both of them have broken down at least 3 times this year due to problems with the annoying computer circuits that they can't fix themselves (even if they could, they wouldn't, wheras I prefer to fix things myself.) buts I've never heard of an old M20 motorcycle breaking down every ten miles, probably because there's almost no electronics to go wrong, in fact there's hardly anything to go wrong on board, they're basically just an engine (469cc 4-Stroke single cylinder side-valve, sounds like a proper motorbike should - cast iron block of course), some wheels (made out of steel because that's what wheels should be made of) and some leather.

A lot of people seem to really like motorcycles from the 60's/70's, a guy I know owned one (can't remember what, he wouldn't let me see it) but he never rode it, he kept it in his shed and started it once a year, what a waste, he sold it in the end. In England, most people seem to go crazy for the Norton Commando (Introduced in 1967), even I like it, but I still prefer things prior to 1940. There's an old saying with the English that we've long since forgotten, which was that you can't beat British engineering and given that this stuff is still running, I'm inclined to agree - then again, I'm English, so I would say that ;)

For reference, a Norton Commando made in 1970;

Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Gambini on February 24, 2012, 03:58:42 AM
In case you didn´t understand me: I meant bikes prior 60-70 are less reliable than bikes from 60-70. I like that Norton Commando, just as i like the Triumph Bonneville and Thruxton. But again, If i´d had to buy one I´d buy a japanese or Italian model from those times because IMO they were unbeatable in almost every aspect (japanese, mostly) and they have the shifting lever and rear brake pedal in the correct side (plus, their bolts and screws use the metrical system). I don´t like modern bikes either. Most likely because, as you, i like to fix things myself and modern vehicles come with all that electronic shit I can´t stick my hands on. That bike of the picture has been completely rebuilt by me, mechanics, paint, polishing, ring ratios, welding, etc.

But yeah, english bikes were far superior than their american counterparts (heavier, slower, uglier).

What do you think about those new Classic Sport models that are being sold by Triumph and Ducati? With the times that run, and my tight schedule, I would not mind to have one of those. Classic feel, brand new stuff = no worries.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Puritan on February 24, 2012, 08:13:24 AM
hehe nothing like taking for a ride an old bike that runs like new.  :)

What did they do to it exactly?


Oh my...a complete engine overhaul. I'm not familiar with the english terms for these technical issues.
But the cylinders have been made slightly bigger. It's now about 1060 cc. New pistons of course. New valves.
New camshaft chain. New clutch.
In addition to that I've replaced most frame fittings.
The gas tank had a small damage. this is now fixed and painted.
Both front fork tubes are new.
New stuffing and cover for the seat.


Later on this season I will replace the rear shock absorbers, front brake discs/pads.
And maybe some new cable wiring and switches here and there. :)


I bought this bike back in 1993 and I never had ( or tried) any bike that beats this one when it comes to " joy-factor" and how easy it is to ride.
I fell deeply in love with this particular model when it first came out back in 1982. At that time I didn't have any money to buy one, so I did hang around places where bikers were gathering just to have a look at this lovely bike  :P   ;D
I found out that it was only imported 35 of them to my country so you can imagine how difficult it was for me to find one in the early 90's when I had enough money to buy one.
By pure luck a stumbled across one that was stored in a backyard under a tarpaulin.
I knocked on the door and asked if the bike was for sale. And the guy said that he was looking for a Kawasaki 1300 cc. If he finds one he will sell me the LTD.
Then I told him that I knew about a 1300 cc for sale.
In short; He sold me his LTD in order to get money enough to buy this 1300 cc  ;D


I've attached an image of a bike that is exactly the same as mine.
Next year mine will look something like this:

Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Puritan on February 25, 2012, 01:44:51 AM
Yeah, thanks mate  :)
I think the both of us have the predilection for japanese bikes!
I've been riding bikes since the 70's and I've experienced that almost all the other brands is suffering from bad  quality, maybe except from BMW.
Sorrry mates, but English, Italian, Russian and American bikes weren't good enough.


Having said that, I know that HD built a better version from 1985. ( HD engines from 'birth' to 94' was pure crap).
My opinion: BMW has to be crowned as the 'bike of the century' regarding 'how long a bike would last' competition.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Gambini on February 25, 2012, 04:30:13 AM
Well, although I really love bikes, my experience comes mostly from reading and staring. I never owned big bikes, i rode a couple that some friends or workmates lended to me but that´s not the same. When I got the seniority to get the big bore motorbike license (and the financial stability to afford one) I had already more important things to look after. So my dream have been postponed for more than ten years.

About brands and origins. Yeah, japanese bikes have been kicking all other brands in the ass since the 70´s. Their tecnology, engineering and metal quality have been decades ahead of time. Not for nothing most european brands gone bankrupt (althrough recovered later by asian capitals). I don´t agree about BMW though. They are overly expensive and have subpar power/displacement ratio, and even so after buying one you still have to keep spending lots of money in their maintenance, because they require qualified manpower to be taken care. I admire though that it seems one of the very few brands that go their own way about engine and frame layout, but hell! they are ugly.

HD has been stuck doing the same bike for 100 years? the only innovative thing they did was that VROD and it was co-worked with Porsche. Those are some lovely bikes but it´s like they´re stuck in time.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Forge on February 25, 2012, 05:09:47 AM
funny. HD has alot of japanese parts (electronics, suspension, carburetor, etc). they got a bad rep back in the late 60's early 70's (same as the american auto industry of that time). The demand for their product was on a dramatic rise so they figured they could mass produce as cheap as possible. Quality went to shit which caused everyone to start buying japanese for reliability. HD doesn't have the bad quality issues it used to have, but they're still underpowered compared to their japanese counterparts

I'm not a bike enthusiast, but i agree with Gambini that HD's haven't changed their look in decades

I'm bored, here's one of my other bicycles before it got the kerosene lamps;
(http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/1332/phot0058.jpg)
The 1953 Raleigh-made BSA in the background is no longer mine, so you're focusing on the older (1927-1937) Raleigh Tourist in the foreground, this will give you an idea of the size of these things as the 50's cycle was just a tiny bit bigger than a modern commuter bicycle, so as you can see, the Tourist is huge (as is my other bike, the one I pictured some days ago) and it runs on 28" wheels, very smooth ride.

(http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/6501/phot0061.jpg)
Come to think of it, I don't have that saddle anymore, that came off a Hercules long before I bought the bike, I still have every part I ever removed (even a broken cone I took off the front axle) but I've been using a Brooks B66 for some time as that was the saddle that was fitted according to the Raleigh catalog from the time.

You should consider opening a local museum.

@Puritan; Museum? Nah, we have the transport museum for that and nobody ever goes there, they aren't maintained at all though, which irritates me. The weights I do not know exactly, but "really heavy" would seem about right, they weigh a lot more than the steel mountain bike I used to have.

@Mister Sinister; Now there's an instrument I could never play, I tried several times but to no avail, I can only play instruments that have keys and even then, it all sounds like 80's Synth-Pop.

Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Forge on March 10, 2012, 12:01:15 AM
I drove manuals for so long that I'm preferential to them. Driving an automatic I occasionally find myself reaching for the shift lever that isn't there.

I find they're better than automatics if you have to rock yourself out of snow or mud.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Gambini on March 10, 2012, 12:51:28 AM
I was going to say "Automatic? psssdd" but the only body feeling i have right now is a pain in my left foot caused by pressing the clutch pedal so many hours at my job. An automatic transmision would come handy here  ;)

The peaks covered with snow is about 2000 meters above sea-level.

^The lake in the image above is artificial.
It's a huge hydro power plant at the far left end of the lake.
Sadly, the power plant isn't spectacular as most of it is located inside a mountain.
The reason would be that it is very hard to bomb or sabotage a facility that is covered by hundreds of meters of solid rock, I assume.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Forge on August 26, 2012, 06:19:23 PM
Has the reservoir been stocked with fish? It looks like a nice place to go out on a boat all day trolling around with a few lines in the water and a few beers at hand.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Puritan on August 26, 2012, 06:28:45 PM
The company that is responsible for the power plant had to sign a contract with the Norwegian government that they have to keep the lake "alive" as long as they're making electricity out of the water from this lake.
So, they are paying local environmental organizations for raising and put thousands of trouts into the lake each year.
It's hard for trout to reproduce since the water level is constantly changing. The company have permission to lower the water level with up to 28 meters  :o .
Trouts are feeding on vegetation / insects that is close to shore, sometimes huge chunks of the  population would starve to death since the shoreline is a "desert" every now and then.
Trout also tends to reproduce in shallow waters. So, their eggs would be on dry land before they know it.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Forge on August 26, 2012, 07:18:26 PM
28 meters? There aren't any fish that could successfully sustain their population with that sort of water level drop.

Can they do it any time they want or do they have to wait until after spawning season?

Seems like it would be cheaper in the long run to make some artificial spawning beds that wouldn't be affected by the water level.
Title: Re: Random Snaps
Post by: Puritan on August 26, 2012, 07:58:39 PM
They can do it anytime.
Having said that: The water level is more connected to rain/snow/glaciers than any "profit plans".


There is an artificial spawning bed on-shore ran by the mentioned environmental organizations.
Don't know exactly how many trouts they're putting into the lake each year, but it is thousands.
Many of them survives the water drop so it's possible to catch fish weighting in around 4-5 kilo's.


My brother is a friend of the owners of this lake and next summer he told me that I can borrow his cabin for a few days.
He would also give the owners a call so I can borrow a boat and do some real fishing on spots recommended by the owners ;)

I recently bought some second hand CF cards, the previous owner didn't format them, photos included loads of flowers, his family and... someone playing RCT3 with his PayPal open on another screen, on the Add Card page... I formatted it of course - needed it for use as a HDD in a DOS machine - but I might drop him a message advising him to format them in future, if I were a malicious person it might have ended badly for him.
