well - it was fun again. fairly warmish until sundays cold wet ride home that became an endurance ride.
shaun got up to my place late afternoon after we planned an early morning off on friday - he was on the back of an AA van - bugger... we spent the rest of the day trying to get him going, but his mag was dead and we ran out of time / light and energy... but i had a pan-euro sat in the garage waiting to sell so lent him that and we set off early saturday instead. with shaun on the pan i took the sporty [and even a full face helmet!! - glad of that on sunday i was] and we hammered miles and got up there in sensible time.
saw everyone i wanted to see, drank a few beers and had some laughs - it was wet, windy, very boggy but fun times.
shaun took pics - i forgot my camera - when i get them ill post them up
got the first manifold pretty much done for the stumo puller, 40mm lectrons to kick the game off, then we shall sort things out somehow to go supercharged once things are running with some level of reliability
its the 50th dragon rally this weekend - should be a laugh and an excuse to catch up with some mates and drink beer.
dragged the shovel out of the back of the garage at the weekend, its been off the road for the winter this year. well - it wouldnt play when i wanted to ride on sunday, but last night checked the carb over and was just the float. 4 pumps and 3 kicks and off she went good as gold. im looking forwards to riding up there this weekend and seeing some of the old faces.
