There's a few of us around in the area. Haven't been out for a weekend ride in a long time, but might make an exception this weekend, assuming I don't have something to sort on the R6. My SMT's pissing oil again, and I need to get out of town to see whether it's coming out of the airbox or somewhere else.

Not anymore.

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7265

It's not a very happy R6 at the moment though. No spark, and I can't work out why. Other than because "i crashed it" or "i tried to fix it", either of which would explain just about anything.

Just changed the rear tyre on the SMT and the partly-sheared chain LHS adjuster bolt became a completely sheared one when I put the spindle back in. Had to wedge the broken-off head between the stump and the adjuster block for the time being, but it's not exactly a permanent fix. Think I'm going to have to give InMoto a call on Monday. After I've given Infinity a call about the R6.

Does kind of rule out taking the KTM for a thrash tomorrow though.

Definitely won't be free the weekend after Easter either. That's the next round at Cadwell.

Need to road-test the SMT before I take it to France in a couple of weeks (suspected oil and coolant leaks, suspected worn rings, snapped chain adjuster, the list goes on), so will probably nip over to Gurston Down near Salisbury tomorrow for the hillclimb.

Should be a nice day out in the sun, assuming the bike makes it. If anyone fancies meeting up either there or on the way, give me a shout.

Might go for a trundle tomorrow, but it'd have to be on the gixer as the tractor's in Bermondsey til Tuesday.

Think Loomies has a barbecue on or something.
