Normally I'd say that's not exactly very adventurous but any ride on a '70s 750cc 2 stroke triple is a bit of an adventure :)
Looks interesting. Tempted to ride over on an old farts bike. Matchless. Not quick like your kettle but it usually gets there eventually. Providing the carb fixing nuts don't drop off again. :laugh: :laugh: Loctite applied, spare nuts and spanner in pocket.

Kettle? You cheeky git, it's a Kawasaki H2 not a bloody kettle (thumbs)

It's not far from you so a Matchless oil dripper should be ok if you carry a spare gallon on the pillion seat but at least it'd match my 2 stroke supply carried in a similar way.

Let me know if you're going and we can meet up for a beer and a laugh at all the old relics then look at the bikes.
