Lenore the LC4

Lenore is a 2016 Husqvarna 701 Enduro.  She’s been heavily used, badly abused and substantially modified. So far the engine has been subject to two rebuilds, many of the plastic panels are held on with cable ties, the clutch cover is from a 690 and the radiator is held together with a large lump of two compound plastic. The name, in case you’re wondering, comes from my own version of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” that one too many blows to the head inspired me to write during Hellas 2018.

She’s been heavily modified over the years; you’ll find an attempt at a full list of mods below. I’ve probably forgotten some I have made over the years.
