Well its that time of the year again. Bike is running on the bench with a bit of a de-tune over last year.

I couldnt get it to pull in top gear, so ive lowered the barrels and had the heads machined to lower the rpm that peak HP is produced.

Came home running last year, first time in a cpl of years, did 127 on my old record of 114. Still looking for another 140+ year.

Thanx
Dave

Hey Cookey & Pete, yep catch ya both up there.

Forecast of low to mid 30's is looking good but lots can change between now and then.

Our old Land Rover has been retired after 10 years, 9 trips to the salt, so had to do some shopping round to find a replacement. Ended up with a Nissan Pathfinder, will see how it performs. Uses heaps more fuel than the old Disco did. :cry:
