Happy New Year

At last, a sunny day, and what a day, clear blue sky, no clouds, no salt on the roads, just a little damp here and there, damn near perfect. So I thought I should take the Guzzi out for a spin, it is the first time I have had a chance to ride it since I bought the old thing, and got trailered home with the oil leak! time to see if all my work has paid off. So I opened the garage door, and there it stood in the sunlight of a new year…

So I pushed it into a new day, aand it fired right up, and soon settled into a pleasant tickover, we were ready to go. But where should we go on this fine day, well the Phoenix at Phoenix Green that’s where. So I made a couple of calls, to see who was about, and off I set, on quiet empty roads, heading for North Hampshire, and a coffee at Hartley Wintney…

So having had a nice hot coffee, I made my way the short distance up the road to Phoenix Green, and soon found somewhere to park up, before going off to see what was about…

Well it was soon time to be heading for home, so I fired up the bike, and headed for the lanes, some of these were a bit dodgy following all the rain of late, with lots of mud on the corners, But I was soon back home, and the bike ran pretty good, the gear change has improved with the new clutch cable, although I still have a little work to do there, but alas, my left foot was again covered in oil, but not this time from the breather assembly, this time from the head, so it looks as though I need to do the head gaskets and o-rings.
