Out with the PSC2, in with the PS4S.

Hopefully they will last longer. I still need to figure out how much km I've put on the original tires.

Edit: Roughly 13000km, 10000 the first summer, under 3000 last year and just a few hundred in 2021.

That means that the Pilot Alpin have around just under 13kkm on them as well.

Gave a quick wash to the RS and both bikes to try the new pressure washer and the foam cannon I received yesterday.

Not satisfied with the results, I will need to tweak my technique and maybe the equipment to get better results.

New 1.1 mm orifice + proper soap + proper dilution ratio == foam bukkake

Went to work just to have lunch with some coworkers today, I had to take a picture with a landing plane in the background.

Should take a proper one with my DLSR and by parking closer to the runway centerline.

Went for my first service in a year yesterday.

I kinda forgot to do the one last spring (I usually do one every 6 months whatever the mileage is).

I also had them do the end of warranty inspection, since in a few weeks the 3 year full warranty will expire.

Everything ok, except the engine under tray that is slightly damaged, probably due to me parking in some hard snow at some point. No need to replace it according to the dealership, and at 450$ plus labor, if I do it will be for an aftermarket aluminum skid plate.

Gave it a wash today, probably the last time I'll do at home this year

I took possession of the RS exactly 3 years ago today.

I am 12 km shy of 30k, so I have an average of only 10k km/year. Mostly due to covid, bur also my travelling for work.

Fuel consumption average so far, 12.9l/100km.

Went through one set of summer and one set of winter tires.

I still love the car, I still enjoy every drive.

Pictures from last Saturday, as I swapped back from the PS4S to the PA4.
