It's still in bits at the moment .There is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel but that could be an oncoming train 😂😂😂20190320_230307-1.jpg

New shock absorbers feel night and day to the old ones though and I haven't ridden it yet!should have painted the surrounding bits first but couldn't wait

Nick,

Definitely up for a coffee at the barn.

D1 Renovation; had it for 50 years and thought I ought to start :)

However, as I thought it might take a while, bought a B40 to ride.

So looks like Sunday April 14th guys...we usually get to Lower Rivvy between 10-30 and 11am.

I ride from Runcorn prob meeting a few riders possibly at Stretton...going via Warrington Golbourn Hindley Black Rod if anybody want to tag on...its a nice leisurely ride no fast or busy roads bar Warrington...and we can avoid the town center if anybody require that.

Just need some good weather on the day.

Dont worry if you dont have a Bantam...if you are a Bantam fan thats enough.

Good cafe on site.

Nick.

Be great to see you there...will it be your first...looking forward to seeing your D7.

Dont forget its not the Main upper barn were all the bikers go but the lower barn...we have had mix ups in the past.

They are only 1/4 mile apart.

Nick.

Will be my first ride out to Rivvy Barn.  If I go to the wrong place I will ride on to the right place.  Don't get too excited about the D7.  Its a bit old and unusual,  but it is the only one I trust at the moment. All the other Bantams are running hot and risking seizing up. Not sure what is wrong but when I get the time I will work it out.  ( I suspect fuel or pattern exhausts).

«censored» - seized just outside Preston. It started again, but I elected to ride it home rather than risk it.

Strangely it rode back beautifully.

Both my Bantam’s are fighting me at the moment, every step of the way.
