Netley Marsh Eurojumble…

I attend this event every year, but this year may well be my last. The numbers were well down on previous years, the Saturday was just a waste of a day, most vendors had or were packing up and leaving by mid morning, but the event organisers still expected visitors to pay the full amount to enter what was in reality a fast emptying field!

Now I have had my moan, I will say that the Friday was still a good day, and I managed to find some good parts for both my Norton’s. including a set of chain cases for the clubman project, which I was very pleased to find.

I spent last weekend camped at the Netley Marsh, Eurojumble, down on the edge of the New Forest, I go every year as it coincides with my Birthday, so I take a day off work for a bit of Me time.

This year it was heaving, the weather has been great, and the weekend was no different, with a high pressure sitting over the UK, giving us clear blue sky, and Hot sun. Of course this good weather brings out the crowds, and people came from all over Europe and beyond, the place was rammed.

This weekend was the Netley Marsh Eurojumble, held down near Southampton, I go every year as it is a great day out, but this year I camped there for the weekend, and while there  I bought a new bike, well it was delivered today, so my first chance to really get to see what I had bought, and as you can see it is a stunner. Sure there a couple of small items that will need sorting, Rear indicators, weeping master cylinder, being  the most urgent at this time, it also smokes quite badly when it starts, but that soon disappears when warm, I have heard this is quite common though, although I am not sure to what extent.
I intend to get it booked into the garage soon though, and get them to give it the once over, just to be sure all is well. They can also fit a new seal set to the master cylinder while it is there.
