Well dandy is taking the flower-power-mobile down, no not the 900, the bongy tongue.gif . So are any of the real men on motorbikes interested on meeting up for the ride down.

Sorry Bob I wasn't ignoring you, I'm just not sure when I'll be leaving Edinburgh, I'd like to get away early and have a good long spin (weather dependant), if I'm leaving later I'll let you ken wink.gif

Hi Emmett
I'll give Dandy a phone wednesday night then good.gif And hear nearer the time whats happening. Don't know what the other guys from Scotland are doing yet might get a meet up somewhere but I'm flexible (with time that is before Dandy passes remarks). I have just spent a fun hour trying to get the spring back on the side stand after fitting crash bars and buggered me thumb up as well oh the joys. wub.gif

Bummer... If you have to remove/replace again here's what to do:

Get a good grip on both ends with some locking pliers (we call 'em 'vise-grips') and bend the spring in a U. In the 'outer part of the bend' the sping is spaced wide. Put coins between the spaces, then bend it the other way and do the same. When it straightens out the coins will make it longer. Hook it back on then use the vise-grips to pull the coins back out.

(Then use the coins to buy a pint) drinks.gif

And what time of the day friday are you lot expecting to pass junction 42 of the M6 or better still carlisle

as i live there i could meet you guys and take you down the last little bit, or if your up for it show you some nice little stretches of tarmac to the destination.

or alternatively you could have a staging post just for a piss stop / cuppa / sarnie break wink.gif

i finish nights at 6am friday so no earlier than 13:00 though tongue.gif
