Can you imagine a better way to arrive in Ålesund, than to be invited into a fully equipped wok shop?  This, and no less, what met ua as we limped into town with a leaking slave cylinder and DOT-4 on the slipping clutch.

After Kristiansund and Bud, and after the magnificent Atlanterhavsveien.  I recommend a ride across Atlanterhavsveien.

Without reservation!

But today’s’ hero is AMS Motorsykkelsenteret in Ålesund.  I called them and told my store about having to fill DOT-4 in the clutch reservoir all the time, and the slipping clutch.  The chief mechanic said that he had no vacant slot for me.  But if I could work on the bike myself, he would be happy to let me work in his shop.

Think about that!  Notice that the bike is on a lift.  Standard setup in a professional shop.

If you ever come to Ålesund with a BMW, a Yamaha or a HD and you are in need, you should ride to AMS.

I am also happy to tell you that with a cut-off 4mm hex-key you can replace the clutch slave cylinder without removing the swing arm.

TaSK and an Internet friend

A helping hand

As I was starting to work on the bike a fine gentleman walked in.  He had seen that I would be there that day, and offered to help.  I would not have gotten that last pesky clutch-line back on without him.  Thank you very much!

We have spent the evening with the family of (yet) another Internet friend.  Details to follow.

    God dag, Sissl og Tage! Vi skjønner at dere er kommet til Ålesund, med en sykkel som trengte litt ekstra omsorg. Men dere er jo åpenbart i rute, ikke verst med en så lang tur. Hvordan reiser dere videre nå? Jeg kom fra Høvringen i går, vi skal på en fødselsdagsfeiring på Sørlandet nå i helgen, men er tilbake på hytta på onsdag kveld. Er det noen mulighet for å se dere der? Trenger dere et overnattingssted der, kan dere bare ringe, så skal jeg fortelle dere hvordan dere tar dere inn i hytta.
