I haven't been out and about much for a while so when some of the lads suggested a quick Track and Saddle run I was in. Luckily it was a great weather if a little chilly, perfect weather for an air cooled two stroke! Pity all my ones are off the road requiring some major attention. Luckily Dion turned up for the run on his TZR to up hold the Blue Haze logo on our t shirts with the only two stroke. Word has it that a number of two strokes will be returning to the road shortly after some maintenance and rebuilding. Looking forward to those special atmospheric conditions that seem to happen when leaving the city limits on the 2Tees! Michael and Ian showed up with a couple of new purchases. Michaels Aprilia is an earlier carburettored version of Alans 650 Pegaso and the two of them swapped bikes on the run. Consensus was that the carb version ran better versus the snatchy nature of Alans EFI version. It was great to see Ian turn up on his latest purchase, a Suzuki GS450S. I had one for a few years and really enjoyed it and they are surprisingly quick. Ian proved this by having no trouble keeping up with alan and Dion over the Saddle road. Prior to this we had a great chat over coffee and scones at the Bridge Cafe sitting in some warm winter sun.
Roll on the next fine winter Sunday!
