Rivi barn you say on Thursday.. hmmm.

My foray on the weather websites shows it to be still in the balance for Saturday..
It looks like we'll be setting off a bit later in the morning.

OK so it's a later set off..  Thumbs up

11:00 at Redbeck Cafe, Doncaster Road, Wakefield, all other times will just follow on from there.

Denby Dale Road, Midgley, Grange Moor, Kirkheaton, Cooper Bridge, Ainley Top, Outlane to Buckstones, STOP.

Denshaw, Delph, Uppermill, Diggle, to Granpa Greenes, STOP.

Mossley, Stalybridge, Mottram, Glossop, Snake Pass to Ladybower, STOP.

Strines Moor, Stocksbridge, Deepcarr, Wortley, Shepley, Emley then back to Wake..

The forecast at the moment is looking good.


Whos coming? You'll miss out!  There are some classic biking roads on this route,

But you would rather watch some poor Ginger lad getting hitched? I ask you..

Bugger, bugger, bugger, bugger and BUGGER!

Giving the H2 a bit of a clean up and sorting an annoying oil leak she's had for a while, I stripped the fking drain plug this evening, and just 4 days to go..

Ordering an M12 x 1.25 Helicoil set online is gonna take until Thurs/Fri possibly leaving just hours to do the deed. I don't currently know any where locally to buy one over the counter but the internet is my friend. Proper Timesert sets are over £100!

Does anyone know any quick workarounds? I tried PTFE tape but I'm not happy since it still won't tighten firmly.

I have the standby S1 which has no MOT but within hours of the Rideout it will no longer need one. it has also had some major engine surgery over the last 18months but hasn't had any proper shakedown miles put on yet and it'll be a bit of a steady ride for the bigger lads, it might have to do though.

So guys, what are my quick options?? Anyone know any temporary but secure fixes?
Or maybe you have a Helcoil set for M12 Fine thread?

Sorry Gra i dont have any timecerts or helicoils... If you end up taking the 250 we can have a steady run, you can lead no worries.... we dont even have to go so far if you dont fancy risking it..

My only alternative suggestion to a helicoil (personally I think they are crap and not oil tight not to mention very difficult to fit correctly...) or timecert would be to drill out and re tap a bigger size and fit a new plug if you can get hold of one..... something from halfords to fit a car sump maybe...?

Your solution is soooo close to the outcome Rob..

That awfully nice Mitsui James came up with a repair plan, and so for the moment we are "game on" for Saturday.

He measured the outcoming Plug and it looked like a 'something' BSP size. Grrr

No matter what I do it's never going to fit again, so James sent me home with a couple of Taps to wind out the hole by hand to 14mm and cut new threads at the same time, he also made up a new drain plug for me to the Tap size, 14mm.
I can buy a proper one later.

Having put a huge blob of grease on the Tap to trap the aluminium swarf, my first problem was that whilst doing the first tap on the hole, it stopped dead and the new thread stripped straight out... Grrrrr.

Putting a light up the hole showed that there is an off centre edge where a repair patch sits (misaligned) over the original hole in the casing, it will need drilling out which is a bit more serious than just Tapping a thread so I won't be hanging upside down to do that one.

Anyhow I did manage to get a secure thread in there and in went the plug with two Dowty washers to fill in the empty space where the plug is slightly too long and sticks when it reaches the ledge, It's not pretty but it feels well secure for now and so far there's not a single drip under the bike..

James made up a luvly plug but "Can you tell what it is yet?"

Looks like you might want to send that off to shag for a welded repair...when you get the opportunity, he’s very good at welding aluminium....

In the meantime looks like James has come up trumps Thumbs up

Ian Barker (who is coming on the ride) is also a sage of Alu Welding and is far closer (Knottingley), there is already some of his handywork on the bike.

Really enjoyed the day out, I wonder what it was like to be sat in watching the telly when you could have been out having a good time. Thanks to Gra for organising a great route, I didn't realise you could go west & south and find roads so good. Also thanks to everyone who came for the ride, no mishaps and only 2 wrong turns all day. I will be back on a 2 stroke for the next one. (said with fingers crossed).
Ta, Mick

Thanks for making it a great Birthday Mick..

I can't believe how good it was either... The best ride I ever had without Alps or Pyrenees being involved.

Weddings.. Phhhh!
Fitba? .. hahaha..

Riding with mates through glorious countryside with few/no cars around. Thumbs up

Most of the DarkSide route was new to me too, but apart from the Glossop traffic, I was well chuffed with the result.

Looks like you all had fun, and not a ginger in sight. I was busy moving 2 tons of rubble and soil at my daughters.

At last some more pictures of the day, not all my own either..

Two Satans Slaves turned up a the start point but were only there by chance and heading the other way.




Gary and Jo, Mick858 and then Dave in Newmillerdam




The empty road reaches the horizon.




Granpa Greenes is a superb location for food and Icecreams








More empty roads on the Snake Pass.
