I can't imagine any country nowadays being able to change from left to right hand drive. I wonder if there were many accidents.

Ah, I am sensing a level of familiarity here.

Was this the old 'i'll just balance this headlight on the mudguard while I fiddle about in the headlamp shell and hope it won't fall off' trick?

I've a funny setup in my fairing Simes, it has two bolts that hold in place. So it was a different trick. It's the, I'll just screw them in hand tight and tighten up later, much later :D

Cold this morning as I set off at silly o'clock. But the ride home from Pulborough was lovely. Just outside Midhurst is this.

Had a cold trip up to Kempton Park auto jumble yesterday and spent too much time talking and bought nothing :D still I at least got a gearbox sprocket lock washer. I fitted that today which is a very easy job with my belt drive. I can pull the complete clutch straight off the shaft with just the clutch dome removed.

Then I had a look at an oil leak on my my alloy head. Couldn't realy work out where it was coming from but a look under the rocker feed banjos revealed no fibre washers. Can't imagine that I could have put it togeather without them. I could have done with buying a few of them yesterday so I've made a couple of leather ones for the time being.

Hope all is well with you Steven, not seen any writings from you all week. Both my wife and myself love reading and seeing the pictures of your travels around that lovely country. Keep on riding, keep on writing about it.

Nice City. Brother in Law is from there, so we used to visit reasonably often. He now lives in UK so don't go anymore. Enjoyed it when we did though.
