Following on from the success of the last one .... ** Please log in to view ** ...It's time to plan for an Autumn Ride Out 😀

The date can be flexible to the weather and whatever suits the most people - but I'll start with suggesting either Sunday September the 18th or Sunday the 25th. Meeting at Rivington Lower Barn.

Its a good set with food and drink, space to park the bikes, mill round them and chat. There also some nice lanes around there if we fancy a quick spin out together.

I'd love to see you there again Mick - hope you can make it. Would the bike be resplendent with blue mudguards this time ? 😀

Pete - the Lancashire Rep is up for coming and will try to get a few bikes together to ride over too 😀

We just need to pick a date now - perhaps the 18th if Mick is going to struggle on the 25th?

Hi - What's the proposed timing for the meet up at Rivington?  As my D1 is still in a hundred bits I'd be on my other bike but might be good to put a face to a name.

I was trying to by a pw50 on eBay just across the water from you Nick, in the Widnes area. Don't know that area at all - but a thorny response to my questions put paid to that...  Are they prone to a bit of abruptness over that way ? 😉

A tiny Yamaha - a mini motorbike. I'm looking for one for my daughter  - 4 seems a good age for a first motorbike! Well any age is - but you know what I mean 😄

Engine up and running again with a re-bore and a new piston...just did a few engine runs on my drive way as rec by my re-bore man...gentle ride on the bike tomorrow...fingers crossed.

Getting conflicting advice on best way to run in a freshly bored engine...whats the advice you guys can give me...the handbook says upto 1500miles.

My little Rotax is fully run in in 1 hour according to Rotax....and able to cope with WOT.

Nick.
