Whats up lads, I'm back :)
on: February 26, 2019, 16:26

Hi All


Sorry I've been off the radar for so long, life gets in the way of life sometimes!


I hope you are all on good form and thumping away happily ;)


Reason I was away for so long was mainly down to bikes in general taking a back seat on my priority list and to be fair on my interests list. I stood down as a motorcycle instructor and sold my share in the CBT business I had which was followed by the sale of all my bikes as I had no passion left for 2 wheels. Spent too much time riding for work and not fun.


HOWEVER I didn't sell my XT and what with the nice weather recently and a friend getting on the road with a 125 I thought I'd slip my toes back into the lake which is thumper life.


So I've bought a new battery and got my XT insured again and I'm hoping to be back on the road with her this weekend. Current photo to follow when I work out how to post one :)


Cheers All


Sacha

Sacha, good to hear from you, its been a while but I remember your efforts in helping the old lad who had a spill when the farm dog ran out in front of him on the rideout, respect, and hope you can make it to HOW.


Bob, I'm looking good for the trip to HOW after missing the last 2 but got a couple of bits of maintenance/repairs to sort out on the SR500 and then book some digs in Hay, me and Mick Veary hopefully will be riding over. More later.

I'm confident its gonna happen Bob but I will confirm once the bikes sorted…..infact I'm not gonna book digs till its sorted. No big deal but the stator/generator has shown up some dodgy readings on the multimeter and I'm gonna get Marcus at Rex's Speedshop to rewind it. For a while now its got harder to start after standing for any length of time and occasionally I've been getting a highspeed misfire. After checking the usual suspects..plug,coil,carb etc I ran some checks on the stator/generator….not good.


Got the 'full up' from the Arms, no problem, we will find a B&B in Hay.


Paul/Halfmad hope to catch up with you this time round after a couple of missing years. Heres the good news..I've finally packed up smoking after a bit of a fright followed by the mother of all bollockings from the doctor, I'm O.K so don't panic,just buy me a few sherberts instead and we will call it quits!!


Regards to all members,

Andy
