Thanks, it did me proud today. Went to the Triumph shop in Glasgow and when leaving in front of a crowd it started first kick. It has NEVER started first kick before.

Who stacks hay like that these days?
Was it a smallholding?
Looks bigger.

In other bike related news, I bought a Team Honda Pepsi graphics kit for the 96 CR125 and fitted it this weekend with awesome period correct coolness.
Pics when I'm not on my phone.

I thought I was done with two stroke but I've fully got the horn for it again. :-)

Nice. Haven't seen that for years, the farm I worked on was always 20 years behind everyone else but even we had a baler.
We young 'uns had to group them together for the big fellas to pitch fork them on the trailer.
Good times.
Bale sled and grab saw those jobs made redundant. Big fellas had to fight in pubs to prove who was hardest after that. :-)

Just got a year's ticket on the Gamma. The bike feels superb. Before i couldn't bear riding it across town (cutting out at the lights, unrideable power delivery, feeble brakes etc). Now it pulls like it should, cleanly but slow low down and then like a small GP bike up top. Fresh fluid, braided hoses, pads and clean pistons have done wonders for stopping power too. One advisory on the print-out, rear tyre cracking, will need to do that at some point.

 

Ended up shooting the shit with the MOT guy for a good 45 mins. He's a proper shite-ist himself, even if he doesn't know it. A workshop full of old superdreams, diversions, old honda trailies etc. He's got a C2 as a daily and a Sovereign in his garage.

Have not seen haystackes like this for years so stopped to take a photo. Where is a sepia filter when you need it.

Are they going to retap the plug hole thingy or are they talking a new sump?

There was nothing wrong with thread - plug went straight back in.
However on way home from picking bike up the front brake stuck on - the improved braided hoses had obviously pushed pistons out further than normal and filth stopped them from freeing off.
So after having a service I had to strip and clean the front brakes - they just check the lining thickness nowadays. It needed it because MOT is due next week.

That's pretty poor, brakes strip and clean was part of the service schedule when I was working in a dealership.
Used to cause much moaning when a festery one came in but they had new pistons and seal kits stock for most common stuff

I believe they can, but like everything - condition of the RG is paramount - the frame, engine and plastics need to be pretty good for them to get serious coin.
