another perfectly good motorcycle ruined.......

Monday, 3 May 2010

had a run up to darley moor this afternoon, third round of the club championship, always go up after 2pm and you can get in for nowt, collected dangerous on the way, managed to prise him away from his tartan blanket, mug of cocoa and copy of 'motorcaravan monthly', it doesn't matter what time of year you go to darley it's always bloody freezing, there's always something interesting to look at or someone to have the crack with, got talking to a lad with a 675 triumph racer, he had bought it for 6k with a supposedly race engine, yeah, a shagged race engine with all the trick bits taken out and road parts fitted to it, he had it on the dyno and he was 16 bhp down on a standard engine, no money left to tune it so scored a newish engine off ebay and slotted it in, 16bhp up on the 'race' engine = two third places this afternoon.
