2020 Annual Rally Sparsholt Cancelled

I'm guessing you all knew this was coming, I suppose I clung on to some hope that things would improve but clearly now even if things do get better, holding the rally with all the social distancing wouldn't make the rally very enjoyable. And even more importantly it would be so difficult for our ove...

Re: Daily Fixing and Riding Diary on an Ariel 2020

In the background...…..I dont think Harleys are allowed out yet :lol: Well in the background, I was keeping a very anti social distance I stopped to put the kettle on, boils in around 20 minutes so I pull over and switch on. I can set it to say 95 degrees and it keeps it at that with its thermostat...

Ben Mitchell solved this ...
