Road legal again

Picture of bike after coming through its MOT test today. Just one slight avisory on front fork possibly leaking. Ordered new seal and bush to fix it.

First Ride of 2006

I’ve now had my first bike ride of 2006. A new front tyre was fitted yesterday, this feels fine and with no sign of wheel wobble that was there before. Its now booked in for a MOT at the weekend so fingers crossed, its back on the road legally next week.

Project T80 update 5

Well, after a long break from T80 I’ve finally got round to doing the welding round the lower rear fender area. A plate was also put on the outside and the whole lot given a generous coating of wax based underseal.

Nice Blondes

Just got to share this small picture of me taken while at the bikeshow last weekend. I though they would send one via email but looks like its going to be a proper printed version. Here is the sample though:

NEC Bike Show 2005

On Saturday I visited the bike show at the NEC, Birmingham. Lots of nice bikes and babes. It was expensive, parking was £7, entry was £15, plus 200 miles worth of petrol to get there and back. As it was a saturday, the place was very busy. There were kids jumping in front of you […]

Weekend shorts

Top film to see is Wallace And Gromit Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Very funny film, the kids even enjoyed it. Check it out at http://www.uip.co.uk/wallaceandgromit/.

Did an oil and filter change on the old motor, it should run a bit sweeter now.

Proposed Motorcycle licence changes

So whats this all about? More European interferance? If the UK government backs proposals from Europe that would make it more difficult, costly and take many more years to obtain a full motorcycle license it would have a dramatic impact on the whole UK motorcycle industry.

The key proposals are:

The minimum age for riding […]

Project T80 Update 4

Just a minor update, the rear wheel is off. Spotted a hole in the lower part of the wheel arch that joins to the frame. Not a good sign so will have to be patched and welded up. I had felt this on the inside while te petrol tank was removed but wasn’t sure if […]

Project T80 Update 3

The front end is now back together with a new front brake cable. The chrome headlamp clamp was cleaned upand re-fitted. There is however a problem in that the headlight doesn’t work, I’ve not looked at where the problem lies, could be the switch, wiring or headlamp unit itself. The indicators work and look good […]

Wobbly front wheel

Just got back from a ride out, since it was a pleasant afternoon out. The only problem is that I felt a bit of a wobble from the front end of the bike, took hands off the bars slightly to find that they started shaking. Something’s not right here. On closer inspection it appears that […]
