Hi, looks like you are getting things set up for a long trip in Nov: , you wont need indicators round here, as no one ever uses them .

well, I'm hoping to do a few trips on it if we have a decent summer,

I got it all back together this afternoon & started it up, & got the most horrendous rattling out of it you've ever heard in your life

turns out I forgot to adjust the gear selector rod before I put the crank case's back together & a couple of the cogs were catching when it was in nuetral, so I had to strip it all out again AAARRRGH

not to worry though I did eventually get it back together & started up

all that messing about with the dash lights was a waste of time too as they all blew within 30 seconds of starting the bike

oh well, at least it's in one piece & running again

just to prove that it's all running again here's some video shot while riding from my place in Brum off into the country round Romsley, Walton, & Clent hills, where I grew up

don't expect mega speeds as I have only just rebuilt the engine

if you don't want to see me riding through town, fast forward to about minute 7 when the country side starts

enjoy the ride, I know I did

Hi that was a great bike ride, and looks like the bike is going well, i see you have the panel lights set up now.
I can sure find you some roads round here to test the bike , and riders as well, looks like you can handle the bike well and you must have done some miles that day.
Maybe its a test for later in the year , maybe you will have a passenger on the back then .
