General Motorcycling

Its been a busy couple of weeks, last weekend we attended a motorcycle Enduro practice day (for novices!) Enduro is a bit like motocross, same type of bikes but through forests normally which means there are more things to hit! Lindsay Barrie had put in an immense effort at Dunning to make a route through the forest and got a former Scottish champion to come along and give us some tips. We did it on the trials bikes which I was glad off but it does give some disadvantages in that on a trial bike there's no seat so you are on your feet all of the time, this led to much pain for the two days after. Despite the rain we both had a fantastic day out and hopefully took away some learning (thanks to all)
A further day in the garage getting the Commando (70 roadster) ready for its MOT and the Mk3 Guzzi LeMans. This weekend we had sun and i'm glad to say both bikes passed. Sunday was a day to move the sidecar before the tax runs out (it's up for sale if anyone is interested) its been brilliant fun but the storage aspect means we will have to move it on.
Afterwards a gentle stroll up to Powmill on the T3 Guzzi which was excellent.
Next Sunday (2nd April) we have the mighty Norton Owners Club Huntygowks meeting at Tullybannocher, Comrie, be there or be square!!
