This is what happens when men have a garage full of machinery, access to Ebay and a head full of ideas.

Alan Millyard bought two Pratt and Witney engine cylinders and thought hmm, "what can I do with those ?"  :um:

I'm not going that far but I might be adding a 650 Himalayan to the stable if they ever make it.

So the Hiimmy too slow for you then Cliff, nice and sedate, easy valves, not likely to crash one in Spain, you can't go fast enough.

Na not to slow Lee, would'nt worry me to slow down at all but at 400cc i dont feel it's got the legs to get out of the way and prolly a whole new approach to overtaking, new approach to riding really, a 650 version would be more to my liking though.. in fact i was most content when i owned an XT500 for years in the Alps in Germany..
