Another day in the saddle took the BSA Build out on a test ride with Danny Two Dinners took my other standard A10 as a sort of before and after, had a few miss fires, farts andf bangs, Dan sorted it quickly the needle wasnt sitting right brand new carb, bit of roadside fiddling and she was flying, it really wants to run have a real job being sensible until its run in nothing broke or fell off so another good day, its really turned out well, just praying for a few more dry days.

We took a detour on the way home to see our mate Boon he has a great shed and good coffee he had a problem somthing was missing from his A65 Cafe Racer but he couldnt work it out ?? see the photo below.

Boon has a top Shed full of loads of things of wonder and joy
Danny Two Dinners and his Dad
The School run was fun back then.
Is that a Triumph lurking there waiting on build??

Boon on a test ride didnt say it was
rubbish so it must have been good

Boxing Day 2011 Broad ST Oxford it pissed down from the off, the council had put a stop to the classic bike meet, it wasnt a organised thing people on old classic stuff had been turning up for the last 25 years on Boxing day. last year the council sent a van load of traffic wardens and coppers and moved everybody on, so we went this year and rode the wrong way into Broad St and paked in the loading bay, we stayed half an hour or so and headed to the pub in a village on the way to Swindon... still raining.
loads of guys turned up at the pub we had a few beers and coffee`s we then headed into Oxford to see a mate who is in hospice who is not every well, the staff are the best.. on the way home the 45 broke down and Boon had a front puncture on his A65 thats him far right, waving (not drowning) in photo, he took my sporty and headed home for the van i was left in the rain standing next to bike on a country back road, every fucker looking thinking `Oh look he`s broken down` another great day out with some top folk.
