ATRC Points update

The points and standings have been recalculated after the Centennial Rally and sees me move up into 3rd place behind Ollie Lloyd and Phil Page. While Ollie is pretty much untouchable now, 2nd place could still be possible with only 11 points between Phil and I and 2 rounds to […]

In the workshop

I’ve been in the workshop the last couple of days.  I had to make a thicker spacer plate for the GPR steering damper as, once fitted, the steerer nut fouled the damper.  It was fine with just the steerer tube and no nut which is how I had offered it […]

Hunts Post : 28 August

The Hunts Post has covered my participation in the Centennial Rally (ignore the errors).

Keyless ignition

I’ve converted the bike to keyless ignition.  No, I’ve not gone all geeky again and installed RFID proximity sensors (although I did consider it, I have to admit). The nav-tower mounting required the steering lock to have been ground off, and the ignition barrel was relocated to the side of […]

Back from a break

I’m back from a break in France with my son, and to visit family. While out there, I was checking maps and keeping my eyes peeled while out and about, and also doing some research online. As far as I can understand it, the law in France, regarding trail riding, […]
