  1. Shame you couldn`t have got that speed past the King Billy I am sure you would have got a round of applause lol. Cheers Ian
  2. Running it that way could be artificially rich enough to cause the effect I suppose but not sure. Yes it`s all good fun and I look forward to learning what the cause was. Cheers Ian
  3. Hi Bob In the morning I would start with the kettle and thermostat test. Did the fan kick in as after all you weren`t benefiting from any airflow over the rad/engine. I am sure the timing is right but a check of the advance mechanism wouldn1t hurt. Be interested to see how it turns out. Cheers Ian
  4. Fair play to any group enjoying the scenery but I fear some of the more slope browed people of that continent making "Dykes on bikes comments". Mind you the long mileages in that scenery certainly appeal to me. Cheers Ian
  5. How true. When real craftsmen make anything whether beer or cider related there must be twigs and beetles involved. Cheers Ian
  6. That does look very nice. As it`s a 1450 not the 1584 of the later one I suspect that price is about right even though the mileage is ridiculously low which isn`t always a good thing mind. Go on get rummaging down the back of the sofa lol. Cheers Ian
  7. Interestingly the guy that started Frank Thomas owns the airfield property where the tower was that spoke to Glenn Miller last (Near Clapham in Beds and when he retired he liked to drink in the Sunn Inn at Felmersham and he told us there was no such person as Frank Thomas as it was made up using the first names of his two sons. I liked him and he was very interesting to talk to remembering a lot of the names from back in the day such as John Brown Wheels who he described as sharks lol. Cheers Ian
  8. Ooh has @Stu had a bad day at work? Cheers Ian
  9. Just a thought you are only a couple of miles from J&S factory in Finedon. I have found them very helpful in the past and an enquiry couldn`t hurt. Cheers Ian
  10. At least I was trying to be helpful lol. Cheers Ian
  11. Fair enough. I don`t like electrical faults but I like clunk noises even less. When you get it home start by removing panels etc and examine everything before you start ripping into it. If in doubt take pics and ask others. Good luck and hopefully an easy fix. Cheers Ian
  12. Oh and I take it your battery connections are nice and tight as you say you have lights. Cheers Ian
  13. On full lock check the state of the sleeve around the cables as they pass round your headstock. If all looks good I take it you have already looked at your fuses? Cheers Ian
  14. Try your horn and headlights it is often chafing of the cables round the headstock which is an easy fix if you are patient and take care. Cheers Ian
  15. You are bang on with that observation. I am sure little schoolkids are told in their cycling profficency that it doesn`t apply anymore. Cheers Ian
  16. Hi James Any lights on the dash when you switch on again? Cheers Ian
  17. I can just see you with a steak and kidney with custard lol. Cheers Ian
  18. Hey Bob Happy Birthday man. Good to hear you deriving some well deserved satisfaction for a job well done and I dare say very appreciated. Cheers Ian

    BMW special tools

    Can`t remember the size of the bugger on this arm but I have a suspicion it was in the 40`s. Arm was from a 748 I think and fitted the frame beautifully. Cheers Ian
  20. I am not disagreeing with @Stu but as someone who has passed his class 1 test I would respectfully point out that large trailers are in general safer for people to get used to the experience with. The cock ups tend to happen with small, light trailers that some numpty`s forget they have following them. I remember once seeing an empty glider trailer pick a range rover up and flip it off the road I was following in an artic and slowed into the middle lane put the hazards on and waited for the tail to finish wagging the dog. Cheers Ian
  21. I haven`t been to Anglesey in years lol Happy to make a weekend of it though. Cheers Ian
  22. I do like that ! Not so keen on the price but I suppose that`s the kind of figures you have to pay. Grabs bucket and sponge and goes to attack the Busa lol. Cheers Ian
  23. Dorking A25 and Box Hill spring to mind but I am sure Lilly Law are keen to swell their coffers in that area. Back in the dim distant past when I lived down there we used to head over in the direction of Westerham and Lingfield and explore the small roads round there. Cheers Ian
  24. Remember what used to be on the front of the Honda XL500 ? Maybe an option lol. Cheers Ian
