After much f... about with the carburettors through several weeks trying to get the right cylinder to run properly, I finally got to a setup wich sounded OK through the exhausts and looked OK by the spark plug condition. The next step, I thought, would be to take the bike for some miles and the weather seemed to be holding up quite well despite of the forecast,so the decision was made. Food for 5 days , waterproof suit,enough tools to rebuild the bike,all packed in the rucksack and off I went, pointing south to the Carole Nash Eurojumble.
Running great all the way down I was stopping on every service station , looking for noises, oil leaks, loose bolts, etc. I did find one oil leak meaning the bolts needed tightening.
3 hours later I arrived at the event only to understand that the main day was Friday and this was 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon and everyone was leaving.
Yep, the show was over. Not to worry, I still managed to get a few pictures from the rusty leftovers , the day was kind of sunny and everything was going ok with the bike, so far, I was "happy as pig in shit".
This, ladies and gentleman, is a BIKEJUMBLE at closing time!
Ok. so I didnt buy anything and left the event half an hour after getting in, but I was still happy.
Oh well, could be worse. Again, glad I've got 3 bikes.
