Br, Eero

Certainly is Eero, he clearly didn't have the help I had when my wiring loom incinerated itself at Pershore, Hermons wire, Arie's soldering iron and Peter's connectors. :D

Italian electrics strike again !

I'm not really into Sports Bikes but the MV F4 has to be the best-looking one ever 8-) .

If the Worthys are not open on wednesday evenings what about a other night, just a thought.
Cheers Bob K

I think the Worthies are going to open up but I'm struggling to understand the government rules, the way I see it we can only meet up in groups of 6 out doors. But looking at the news today the government might close pubs to allow schools to open,

Winter lockdown, that's something to look forward to.Not!

I haven't ridden WE much these last few weeks so I thought I'd fill her up and see Alan. On the way home my gear box broke. That will teach me to ignore her. Couldn't get her to stay in gear, hmm, well I found the problem.

The indent spring snapped in two and wound itself up into a smaller spring, it had jammed itself in.

I got lucky..............my mag filled with oil but Betsy kept on running. Question is that I don't know for how much longer!

That would have been a disaster!
Anyway, the bike is in bits whilst I undertake some small jobs (like touching up with paint where the powder coating came off).

I need to get a move on and get it finished......................It's already August!
