Re: Hopefully others (and myself) can learn (again) from my Stupidity

Coming from an aircraft operations background, this is something about which I'm very careful! When working on aircraft, every tool has to be accounted for, usually by employing a shadowboard/tool tag system. I've spent many a late night combing a hangar for that missing 10mm socket! I also never le...

Re: driving tips

The Triking feels lighter, nimbler and more willing than either old or new (Fivespeed) Morgans. The front suspension is considerably more compliant and much more responsive. My Type 1 has a lot more roll than a Morgan, don’t know about others. The Fivespeed Morgan is relatively comfortable inside an...

You know that Conti CST / T165 is a temporary-use spare, yes?

Re: Electronic timing.

Despite being aware of the backfire issue, I chose Silent Hektik to run on my Guzzi (Triking still has points but I have plans...). It's a beautifully-made system and the customer support was superb when I had issues during the fitting, which turned out to be an out-of round stator bolt head! Easily...

Re: Stoneleigh National Kit Car Show 2nd and 3rd May

Speaking of Stoneleigh hill and testing of motorcycles reminded me there's this film on YT. Take it to 8:40 or so and you'll see the hill I mean (and the bridge, but it's not that jumpy any more).

Re: Stoneleigh National Kit Car Show 2nd and 3rd May

Yes, the M1 is best avoided! Setting off from Jack's Hill, I take the minor A-roads and Bs, and usually fit in a small loop at the end to drive up the Stoneleigh Test Hill, used by Coventry's motor and motorcycle manufacturers in the '20s. Coming back to Northampton via the A45's a quicker option wh...
