Guzzi Cafe project wiring.....

.......is now finished since these pics were taken and everything seems to work which is a bonus.
   Hopefully get the bike started this week using a remote fuel reservoir and see if it's charging etc. It'd be good to get it to the ready to use stage by the time that the painted bodywork comes back

Ride Culture Show - Bristol

It was fairly quiet on the Friday evening and although I didn't go on the Saturday, until picking my bike up, apparently it was a busier day with more bikes being parked in the courtyard too
Not sure what the idea was behind
these wooden structures




BMW had a stand with 4 or 5 variations
on the R9T



Some very nice Classics on the Friday evening







This cafe / diner is open all week and nothing to do with the
'event' space
Lovely cup of coffee and very friendly owner / staff

Westonzoyland Sprint

I went to the Westonzoyland (NSA) Sprint today which is quite a pleasant hour + ride away past Glastonbury and Street. A unusual sight for this event was a BMW twin which was achieving 11.8 second runs @ 116/118 mph which is pretty impressive. It normally runs with a dustbin fairing (not allowed due to not having any lock stops fitted) which could well have knocked another second or maybe two off the time.

Future Islands

Went to see Future Islands in Bristol last night with my friend Fran. Excellent live band / sound but the O2 is just such a rubbish venue for viewing...........unless you get there early and pick a spot. Last went there approx 10 - 12 years ago to see Anthony and the Johnsons and swore then not to revisit the venue,but sometimes needs must etc.
