Decided to get the Strada back on the road this year before I'm too old and knackered to ride the old girl. It's been sat at the back of the garage for the last 5 years and only did 200 miles in the last year I had it on the road. Fortunately it had a big service just before it came off the road so needed less work than you'd expect to get back on the road, a fresh battery, a set of tyres (old ones not worn out but I never really liked them) and a trip to Rich at Moto-R for a small service, set of belts and a good check over. Fetched it back last night and went for a 60 mile shake down only to discover the bike had survived better than me! (could be the reason I ride a Multistrada these days) The 916 performed as good as it always did but the riding position was a bit of a shock after a few years on the Multi so I don't suppose I'll use it a lot but it will get a few runs out this year.
