its kinda yellow here at the moment...

what a ride today, through suffolk's inner roads, 
we had them virtually all to ourselves 
 and the sweet scent of the yellow rape seed fields
as we blasted by...

fucking great

about... tin, commandos, food and a boat...

Tin primary cover
Time to stop chewing my ankle on the open belt
going commando in orford (honest)
 food fest in market square
and Andy is about to launch his boat after winter fettling

a little green rosetta... its really getting betta ....

though mainly blue (streak)
The bitch seems to have found a new habit of cutting out on tick over, as though the ignition has been turned off. The old accel super coil gets a bit warm so I ordered this bright blue number.
I'll let you know how we get on, off to Oxfordshire next weekend for an unofficial party, so watch this space... 

She started 3rd Kick, open throttle
No primary kicks, fired on 2nd kick but petered out AND THEN
Fucking Great!

how long lord, how long... one year of kicking misery...

Finally she will not start, just the odd pop and bang.
That was two weeks ago and I'd had enough.
So today I fitted my old points plate with new points and condenser
and my 17 year old Accel super coil
and junked that Ultima Piece of Shit 
electronic Igniton
She started so easily, a pleasure to kick, she wanted to start.
thats one year of misery...
