Nope, I was in the garage this week...

And at Rufforth this morning, neither of which has a PC...

And, I'll be back in the garage shortly... if it dries up, maybe even out on the road (testing).

Been out!

It's brisk but not quite as cold as I expected, the new engine is very stuffy when setting off but a little tickle of the choke lever perks it up so I reckon it's very week at the bottom, I might even sort that with the airscrews. Pilot jets at most..

kh looks very similar to mine, just slightly darker blue. what year is it? mine was 1976 and was a year old when i bought it from granby's Very Happy NTO 177P and for some reason it's not on the dvla any more. often wondered what happened to my first ever jap bike. it was very boring though after all those brit bikes. it never broke down, it always fired up first or second kick, the lights worked and nothing ever fell off it - apart from me Very Happy
cheers, dd.

sorry Embarassed to me, if it's a triple kwak, it's a kh or h Very Happy
a story from my past: my mate was out on his early 350 triple and blatting down willowcroft hill in the wet. willowcroft is short, but steep and at the 90 degree bend at the bottom is a row of armco. with me so far? anyway, he lost the front and ended up hitting the armco head first. BUT, the year was 1973, the helmet law came into being the day before and this was the first time he'd ever worn one. ended up with a broken arm, but alive and well Very Happy
sorry, i'm bored, dd.

There was a short steep hill with a 90 degree left hand bend at the bottom near where I lived when I had my fizzy when I was 16, I can't remember the speed now but everyone reckoned you couldn't get round the corner above that speed. Well I had to prove them wrong and I did, buy a few miles an hour. Unfortunately when I got round the corner I hit the kerb and fell off. Luckily there was no one about to see it. Apart from the bloke that came out of his house and bollocked me.

not hibernating, just bloody manic fixing peoples bikes, noit sure what the urgency is given the weather for riding is almost done, but people seem keen to get their bikes fixed at the moment

maybe I should start "what am I fixing today" thread for you DD ! - should provide some laughs, especially if I do a live feed with running commentary as the swearing at times is choice !! Very Happy

When was a Halibut blue?

The last piece I had was white on the flesh side and grey on the skin and................it was good enough for Jehova.

I didn't invent the name.. Perhaps Halibut are Blue in Japan. I daresay that sea is a little chilly over there.
