Yes, now you mention it I remember you saying before where you lived, just noticed we are the same age. Born in 57. Good year
Thanks Dave for a great rally. The site where we stayed at was very reasonable with good beer and food.
The ride out on Saturday followed something similar to the LDR with much less mud, great fun. The Ford had a least one causality in front of me doing some damage to his front brake and pride. Lying on the ground with your bike on top of you is tricky enough but in a Ford brings with it a few more difficulties. Plenty off help got him back upright and Paul Jameson had everything with him including a new front brake cable to get his brake fixed. Fantastic.
Here's my bike parked whilst the rescue was taking place, just hope the rainbows heading downstream didn't upset the fish too much, it was only a couple of drops.
As my 27 was running on electronic ignition I needed to keep with me 12 volts. My previous experience with my twin suggested I'd get around 100 miles from a set of 8 AA's but for some reason, and maybe because I've a different coil I could only manage 30. I did bring a fairly big rechargeable battery but that only managed around 100 miles and I'd forgot to bring it's charger
On the Saturday run I only just made it to Abergavenny and more AA's. Luckily I found a motorfactors that sold mobility scooter batteries and got hold of a big one for £32.00, that got me around the rest of the ride and back home. I will get the mag sorted come winter time.
