  3. Did two mri today, one to each knee. I’ve had some pain on and off over the last few years. Had two small naps, so am feeling sort of sleepy. Then went to a local Honda and BMW dealership in search of a jacket. I was suprised to find hundreds of bikes outside, music, BBQ, and beer. They were doing their anual saturday event and I was sorry to only show up mid afternoon and not for lunch. Mastodont: I think this looks really nice, I want an RT eventually: Wouldn’t know what to do with one of these, but wings do look mean as fuck: Pete would bite his nails looking at two of these in stock and available: A test ride NX500, I took the picture because a friend is interested and might travel to test ride one. The party was dying outside, and most bikes were already gone. I managed to have a cold beer before going.

  5. All go for me today 85 miles to Tavy and back today, then 40 mile round trip to Damerells bike night tonight. Twas my mate Martyn’s 63 birthday so would have been a bit churlish to say no when he messaged me to go. My Shadow was off horse riding so I got to go out on my own. Some interesting bikes there Two biker groups turned up and stared at each other from either end of the car park, lots of shiny Harleys and Indians but not much that took my interest.

  6. one of my fvorite loops south, truncated becuase I didn't leave home till gone 3 for verious reasons and wanted to be back in taime to accompany Mrs and the girls to the village 14th July party. 260 ish km took the back roads to Planchez, then did the sempiternel "planchez - Chateau Chinon" which I prefer in the other direction but still a cracking road. Fuelled at Chateau Chinon and had to spend 5 minutes cleaning spilt deisel of my boots, the forcourt of the filling station was fucking swimming in it! shan't be going there again. My original plan had been to cut across country from there to Glux en Glenne before turning north to Moulins Engilbert but given the time and the fact that i fancied some faster curves rather than the tight twisties I'd had up to then, I elected to take the more majour road westwards to Chatillon en Bazois and turn north from there back via corbigny, Bazoches, Vezelay and chatel Censoir. took a couple of pics on the way somewhere between Auxerre and planchez in the Morvan, a rare straight line through the woods Chastellux sur Cure middle of nowhere on an unamed road in the morvan forest , a memorial to 15 allied airmen who died in a mid air colision whilst parachuting arms to the local resistance cell (camille) the 18th july '44. aparrently they managed to parachute in numerous arms between July and september 44 including a jeep and two British 57mm field guns! Chauteau d'Aunay, nothe the two artillery pieces... I wonder if they're the same two 52mm field guns? got home in time to shower before trotting down to the square and pretend to be an actual human being for a couple of hours...

  14. Bimble to Newquay today, course couldn’t go on my own. My Shadow had to come and demanded Maccies, I don’t mind their coffee so worked as a bladder break for me. We had a mooch down to Fistral then up to look over Pentire. She continued to walk into every shot then collapsed because I moaned at her Grumpy Happy Again once we made it home.

  15. My bike hasn't moved properly in weeks. But just booked a room at a friend's place for tomorrow, and am leaving mid morning on a day full of small roads to get there, then heading south for another day full of more or less twisty roads and views ending at my place or at another room somewhere. It's supposed to be getting properly warm but I urgently need to get out and spend a day or two on the bike.

  17. The old Dacia passed its MOT today Several advisories though....worn discs, worn anti roll bar bushes, corroded (but not leaking) exhaust, and worn Mc Pherson strut top mountings, the discs and exhaust are the ones originally fitted, so they have lasted well, i will get the others done when/if funds are available. Scoots MOT in 3 weeks, no problem with (famous last words lol) it passing, it has only covered 200 mile since last MOT.

  27. Been out for a bimble with my Shadow again today. I have driven through Tavistock many times but haven’t looked around the Town since I was a kid. Anyway that was our destination for today. Beautiful old and thriving town. Unlike most of our Cornish towns. Can’t claim to know why. Of course Chloe managed to walk into nearly every photo. Lovely but totally unpractical Harley. Next to a very practical but ugly BMW.

  28. Forgot to say I picked my Shadow up from work this afternoon, took her up to Bodmin Maccies for a Thick shake and a coffee for me, then back down the A30 to Innis Downs, Ebenezer, Luxulyan, Leekseed, Biscovey and St Blazey. Stopped for fuel then Par and back to Fowey. My Mrs was interested why it took 2 hours to go down town for Chloe and get fuel. Well I had to try out the new mirrors.

  36. I've had what i thought was a flat spot off idle for some time now on the XR, tried re-jetting but made no difference and it's put me off riding the bike as its a bit jerky to ride on the slow stuff could never remember it having this issue in the past. The flat spot seemed worse when going down hill with a closed throttle and it suddenly dawned on me what the problem might be, so Yesterday i decided to take a look at the carb, i have a spare carb for the bike off an earlier model so dug that out to compare and after inspecting that carb my thoughts on the issue seemed to make sense, so last night i fitted the spare carb and took it for a test ride, sure enough the problem has gone, so you want to know what i think it was well the original carb has an unknown mileage on it and the throttle slide or carb body is worn so when closing the throttle the vacuum created by the engine was pulling on the throttle slide which was making it stick closed so you had to twist the grip harder to break it free making it feel like a flat spot lovely and smooth again now just like i remember, Had to do some fine tuning with the jetting tonight the older carb runs larger jets than the carb off my bike and it feels a bit more responsive. Another test ride tomorrow night as its pissing down tonight.
