    Old Job Advert

    This appeared in the bike press maybe mid-80s with the slogan (approx) "Score 2 out of 3 and you could be working for us." I can't remember the name of the despatch company. It's been on the wall in my garage for a number of years and makes me smile.

    Prolink wishbone removed

    ...check out the pile of swarf (that's pile #2; I already tidied pile #1!). Little wishbone is still on the bike, giggling and giving me the tongs!! But it's only a matter time now...

    BrendanO's NTV650P

    Sorry Mark, just spotted your comment mid-Jan! NTV is classic high-end Honda build, but not comfiest seat (got mine refoamed for Germany last year). Tiny battery for size of engine. I put higher bars on, used to get sore shoulders after 90 min, would still like a little higher. Engine accrues speed in a "modern" manner, competent but not exciting. 55mpg urban stop-start, more out of town. Fine 2-up. Heavyish to pick up if dropped <ahem>. Mine was low mileage, dealer serviced annually, until 4 yrs before me when it was all year commuter for previous owner. This does mean a bit of corrosion, and a tendency to snap fasteners occasionally (eg fork leg) when dismantling; that was a PITA. Then again, I paid £530 in 2011 for a 26k bike. I've replaced reg/rect unit, silencer (downpipes I think last forever), done forks, new clutch at 50k. 2-3 batteries. Tappets and plugs a bit of a bugger to get to.

    Aberdeenshire in November

    Nov 2018. Borrowed Lawrie's ZAB while staying at his house - stunning day, beautiful autumnal colours, quite mild, and roadside snow if you look hard.
  8. The scene of Scottish CX rallies (jointly with Ariel OC) and general haven for bikers, snowsports fans, and tour buses, before it burned down.

    Autumn in Aberdeenshire

    Nov 2018. Borrowed Lawrie's ZAB while staying at his house - stunning day, beautiful autumnal colours, quite mild, and snow on distant mountains if you look hard.

    Marty, you do know that Highlands And Islands is only one area of Scotland? (cue massive debate on correct current and past name for every region/county/administrative area/borough/local council and what went wrong with boundary changes. And the Beeching Axe)

    Thanks Mark for adding Victor - I know he was having bother getting on the site at all, so you've removed a hurdle for him. Lawrie is probably the most active member currently - he's been posting on the new site. I am unsure who else is a real member and who is a past member but turns up to stuff (like JohnnyAlpha). Oh, Paul H the baker is a current member I think.

    Places To Visit

    Just had first day out since operation, Doug drove me by car but it's a good CX visit too! Steptoe's Yard, just north of Montrose - Google it for directions, very near Darryl's house! Spent over 2 hours there, 50-50 outdoors and inside, salvage yard, lots of tools, automotive, bandsaws, furniture, zimmers, crockery, paraffin stoves...you name it! Quite expensive, but that stops you buying stuff, but an entertaining explore, with nice country and cafes nearby. Sam Burns (Prestonpans, East Lothian) is MUCH cheaer but smaller selection. However, nearby Gothenburg pub makes its own beer and does food.
