One meter of snow would certainty put me off riding Frank.

Great rally again at the Crazy Horse, many thanks to all the Gloucester boys who did all the hard work putting it on. Pete Kent made us all welcome as usual and the bacon baps were again to die for. Cheers Mel and Les .

The weather didn't quite live up to expectations but it is January after all. The accommodation was lovely and warm and the food and beer in the Fountain Inn was great. Two late nights well into the morning mean I need to rest now :D

On my way up on Friday my oill leak curse returned to haunt me. This time I could see it leaking from the exhaust rocker box. Saturday morning early, luckily before the rain started I removed the box and refitted with some copper gasket glue bought from halfords in Gloucester. So far including Saturday's ride and my ride home it has stayed dry.

Not many photos taken due to a flat battery in my phone but heres a couple.

Here we all are having our breakfast this morning. Les is slaving over the stove :D

On my way home I just had to get this picture looking over towards the river Seven.

That's true Les.

Had some welding done to my frame centre stand stops. Now the stand doesn't go over too far.
Taking everything down to the blasters on Monday

I managed to get everything down to the blasters this morning. They are very busy but hopefully ready in three weeks.

Gearbox needs a little attention. Sleeve gear bushes need replacing, but first it needs a good clean up. Scraping with a blunt knife seems to be working best.
