Was definitely going, it was the target event upon completing my 3XV refurb however that has now gone slightly down the tube. Absolutely gutted but enjoy the day  (-P)
Still firing on two....almost.

Almost rebuilt actually but cant select any gear without it stalling when the engine is running. Have removed and refitted the clutch again, stiction evident following winter engine rebuild but still no joy. Next step is to check the clutch alignment arm and the alignment of the basket with the side casing removed. All the gears can be selected when the engine is dead but attempting to start in gear with the clutch pulled in achieves noting except a sweat and weary leg  ::)

Unfortunately not, as usual was just too busy with other nonsense to go, ( working on my house) planned to have a,b & c done in time to take the sunday off....it wasnt....grrrr. Maybe we should organise a forum trip there next time if anyone fancies it, do they only do one a year?

There was an organised get together in 2015 but the 2016 fell thru. Nothing since http://pure2strokespirit.net/forums/index.php?topic=3513.0
