Cobble stones AND a stream, that's the stuff of nightmares - just need some tramlines to complete the set.

Don't forget it was boxing day so about zero, I seem to recall there was more grip in the stream than before or after...

Atala Califfone moped update.
I have a new piston and rings, new head and base gaskets, new head studs to fit, along with the new main bearings and seals already fitted.
That should eliminate any mechanical issues if it still won't run right.
If it still won't run I'll be changing all the electrical components as well.
I really want it running, it's taxed MOT'ed and insured and looks so pretty.

I’m going to be selling my 650 versys soon if anyone on here is interested?
2010 on a 60 plate 33k miles but it dropped a valve and I did an engine swap with one that had done 7k . It certainly looked very clean from the outside and runs perfectly .
It’s been used as a daily commuter prior to me so is a bit rusty in a few places but a good weekends titivating and would be a nice bike .

Will do a proper ad soon but shiters price is £1500 firm

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

A random pic from boxing day 2008 I found while looking for something else. I've never managed to find this cobbled village with the stream down the main road since, which is a shame. All I know is it's in the southern Peak District.

 

attachicon.gifdec 2008 035.jpg

 

Finally found it after a hint on FB

It's Pothooks Lane, Butterton, near Leek. Looks like it needs a revisit at some point then.

I can’t believe how expensive old mopeds are, yes more than the Jag I drive about in everyday.

 

When I was 16 I had a Puch MS50D, 3 on the twist, double seat and quite fancy having another one. I belong to a motorcycle club (a bit like rockers but this one is for the yellow vest wearers) 2 or 3 years ago a free one came up in the magazine but I was second to ask and did not get it.

 

Today I have the latest mag and there is one for sale BUT £475 I struggle with that!

You're going to have a brilliant time, I loved my first year on t'bikes (got fed up with the 125 after a week though).  

 

I quite fancy a Z1000SX but even the earliest ones (2011) are still £5K+.  I can't help thinking about how much low-cost/big-liability Range Rover I could get for that.

Guzzi passed its MOT today. Despite being Italian, and not started since returning from Albania in early September, it started first touch of the button. Had a great 50 mile ride on empty roads.

Took the Yamaha Vity for its MOT this morning, stuck it on Gumtree this afternoon, and sold it three hours later with no messing. Young kid with plenty of sense, more interested in practicality than looks. He'll go a long way.

Looks like the UG110 is on its way to the ownership of a shiters where I know it will be enjoyed.

Xevo sold today to bloke at work as my insurance expires today, and won't need to use it now up to my retirement day. Apart from a bolt dropping out of the rear suspension mount, it's been great. Covered nearly 20,000 miles through 2 winters. Big scooters are great at riding in poor weather conditions. Give me a proper bike for everything else though.

Yes, I had a good bike day today.

Good price on the Versys, and had I not been finishing work next month, I would have had that as a summer commuter and retired the SV from that role.

You obviously haven't come across anything I've posted about mine that I do 10k a year on... Clubs still very active,not that many still used as every day transport but still a popular bike for hardcore dragon type stuff.

I'm out of touch with motorcycles since selling my T140 in 2001.
I have great memories of doing stuff like the National and other rallies all over Europe. A friend left me several Russian 650s last year and I wondered if it would spur me into putting one on the road, but owning examples of most Soviet bikes in the 70's has kept that itch well and truly scratched.
I would have been more tempted by an MZ - I never had an etz... I did, however sample a German friend's IFA 350 from the same factory. A bit of a disappointment, it was quite lumpy with both cylinders firing simultaneously, defeating the object of having flat twin.

No, just a couple of 650s in big lumps, one with solo gearing, one sidecar ratio, both in my shed. Swap for small motorised two wheeled thing.
