Good for you- very scenic ride! 450 Km- what's the tank size?

Haha - the kind of Boss that seems to forget to pay any wages too...

Your one day a year ride looked fantastic!



There's just a chance that Bossy and I might, might make it to the Alps in September...

Cheers

hi Jack,

14.4 Liters are going in there.
as I wasn't riding it really hot on this daytripp, the consumption was near 3.1 liters by 100 km's. :cool:
Jack Gifford wrote:You seem to do just fine without electric starting...
yes, it is a easy starter, first ore second kick usually, A/F Ratio in idle with pulled choke around 12.5 : 1 by outside temperature of 15° in the morning hour. :cool: :cool:

Hmm,,, I guess all B50 riders must be enjoying their bikes in June/July of each year. No new posts here for the last two days- just like a year ago when I started this thread. :thumb

High winds and non stop rain in the south of the uk, means not much happening on the bike front, well cheesed off.

Chris, Saturday was good, thunder and rain at 10am, Reading to Swindon, then to Calne bike show (rained while having lunch so no worries), down to Andover Norton for an open day, back home for sherbets and rock band in the village hall. <12fs running like a dream even two up, still very noisy. Time to clean the bike for next weeks adventures...
