Hoping to, Tim :)


(just did not want to commit and disappoint :lol: .. as dependent on weather and other things)

Something has come up so I am going to have to put this off for now.
Sorry for inconvenience to any that were thinking of coming.

Found the source of my woes.

Started bike up to take to station quick for a fill up and found coolant pissing down side of engine.

I have never know it before but single ear hose clamp had somehow stretched and wasn't clamping tight .

So have stripped bike back to try and effect a good repair. But this is a carbs off job.

It's gonna take time

I might make it out for a bit tomorrow if I have a long late night in garage.
Sorry guys
Next Month???

Depending when your thinking next month and what I'm working I could be up for a weekend on the plain, I'd have to find somewhere to stay though

Having a look I can probably do the 21st/22nd weekend, my mrs doesn't like me sat around the house anyway :lol:
