Time for a break.

Hi all,

It's the holidays and that means that it is time to take a break. I will read my mail every so often in case a download gets stuck. In the past year I have had many pleasant conversations, questions and requests and those are fun to answer. Always happy to help wherever I can! 

That said, I wish you all very happy holidays and see you all in the new year again. May it be a better one! ;)


ps. Often enough though, it happened that the messages this year were nothing more than "i want manual x". Nothing more, just a command. Those will end up on the bottom of the queue from now on. Be nice to each other.

[NL] Viertact bromfiets

Bron: Trouw, 27 Juli 1963, pagina 13

Binnen enkele weken zal op de Benelux-markt een Japanse Honda-bromfiets verkrijgbaar zijn, die in de prijsklasse f. 600 to f. 800 ligt. De motor is een één-cylinder, viertact (er is geen andere viertact motor voor een brommer verkrijgbaar dan een weinig gangbaar Italiaans merk), met kopkleppen en luchtkoeling. De Honda rijdt op zuivere benzine, mengen met olie is niet gewenst. De bromfiets wordt in Aalst (België) geassembleerd. De machine wer donderdad in het RTI-gebouw te Amsterdam door de importeur getoond.

Within a few weeks, a Japanese Honda moped will be available on the Benelux market in the price range f. 600 to f. 800. The engine is a single-cylinder, four-stroke (there is no other four-stroke engine available for a moped other than a little-known Italian brand), with overhead valves and air cooling. The Honda runs on pure petrol, mixing it with oil is not desirable. The moped is assembled in Aalst (Belgium). The machine was shown by the importer at the RTI building in Amsterdam on Thursday. 

A survey of motorcycle use in the forest service (1986)

Now added to the library: A survey of motorcycle use in the forest service

The Forest Service Equipment Development Center (MEDC) at Missoula, MT, studied problems with using motorcycles on units throughout the Forest Service. The first year of the project identified problems through field interviews. In the second year, field people were surveyed Servicewide to determine the extent of these problems. Overall, the survey findings show that using motorcycles in the Forest Service does not appear to be a big problem. They appear to be a very efficient tool and economical source of transportation. It was found that motorcycles are widely used throughout the Forest Service and that the public looks favorably on such use. A large majority of respondents identified operator training as a major need. They expressed the desire for "more" and "better" training for motorcycle operators. Several management options are presented that focus on improving the training of motorcycle operators.
