Here’s a short clip from the show field of the British Bike Day, some old nails and modern bikes too.

There’s a kinda weird Triumph that keeps turning up and I’m sure you’ll figure out the one I mean.

Good day overall, not a huge turnout but that’s the way these things are going.

Just a reminder that the Brit bike meet in Lancaster MA is this Sunday, looks like we’re going to have good weather; no rain in the forecast!!!

Stop by our Commando Specialties area, I will bring my 1977 Triumph Jubilee that’s up for sale and Jamie is bringing his 250 Triumph fresh from restoration.

 

Along with our new Commando parts I will be clearing out some rubbish  Err I mean desirable patinated valuable, gems from my home garage to sell.

Stop by for a chat and have look around, it’s a great day’s entertainment

This past weekend we went to Vermont for the Moto Giro East and had a wet but enjoyable time. 

Quite a bit of mud and rain but we did get some some relief during the two days so it could have been worse.

There is a link in the You Tube description for a short video of the run up through Smuggler’s Notch which is no mean feat on a wheezy little Giro bike!

 

Also remember June 10th is coming up for the British bike get together in Lancaster MA

 

 

I figured I’d better post some Brit bike content for a change, so here’s quickie.

Since I’m planning on Saturday being sticker day I thought I’d better make sure everything runs and the lights all work. No issues to speak of except for the Triumph Jubilee, which has a really dopey front brake switch that needs some fettling every now and then.

So it’s all good and hopefully the sun will cooperate on saturday morning…

 

Ok, get out the eye bleach boys, it’s a Yamaha…..

Finally got the gearbox working so on a half decent day I took the mighty Bonanza out for a short spin around the block.

Pretty boring video but that’s a good thing; no surprises!

Enjoy the the dulcet tones of the mighty 180cc Bonanza…

 

I haven’t posted much content lately but I saw this and figured I’d pass it along. It is pretty basic but judging by some of the calls I get at work I think it may help some people out.

A good series of clearly presented basic electricity and electronics tutorials. Good graphics and some tongue in cheek humor to boot.

Enjoy!

 

It’s that time of year again folks!

It may be hard to believe but the biking season will be starting again, no really I promise…
