    HI Richard, getting the miles up on the bike. Like your Grandfather i served my apprenticeship with B S C in Motherwell my wife and i decided to travel the world lived in Africa and Australia for years but the pull of the U K made us return to the best country in the world.

    754 miles now, slight oil leak again from rocker cover, need to purchase a 1/4 drive torque wrench to tighten things up now and again. So 6000 revs is my limit until 1200 miles I think. To be honest, its enough where I live on my twisty back roads.

    John, If you want some good roads, head over to Wodgedodge country in Oakam/Uppingham some time. Mxmartin will confirm, super smooth roads, little traffic and hilly. Had a magnificent ride the other week on my V7 and his beautiful old Laverda. Will be a bit of a backbreaker for you from Towester but well worth it. Pencil in the Welford meet again next year same time as before.

    I can't believe that I haven't been out on mine for past couple of weeks. I had my Thrux ECU remapped at beginning of month and it has turned it into a bit of a 'hooligan machine' so have been thrashing about on that, but that's for another forum :)

    I think Donington have dropped the idea of a 50th bash, not heard a peep. NOC are having a meet at Weeting, Norfolk this weekend and celebrating 50 years of the Commando so I'm hoping to run down to that on Saturday, my first proper bike was a '68 750 Commando so I feel the need to celebrate in some small way.

    Put some more miles on at the INOA rally, now up to 1118. Time to check head bolt torque I suppose.

    Hi Gary,
    Also up to 250 since bike returned on Tuesday - can’t claim all of it, 142 before fix and returned with 180... still 70 miles in two days ain’t bad. Need the 500 service now though as a pain to run in.

    Hi John,
    Glad you’re finally enjoying the bike, I am using mine daily and have booked the service in. The commute will add another 120, weekends will take it well over, taking my Daughter to Thruxton for Superbikes weekend 5th & 6th August. So pick up booked for the Tuesday after, need to do it as you’re so correct, the running in is painful.
    All the best
    Gary

    Hi Welshrugby, I had seen the belt system albeit by accident, she is 26, so not little. Going to she how it feels with a little ride around the local area. If either of us isn’t happy she’ll pillion on a more friendly bike of a friend. I didn’t buy it for carrying a passenger, just she loves bikes. She grew up when I worked for a company that sponsored a Supersport team, she’s been a grid girl, rode the pit bike and generally had greater access to race bikes than most. She got tickets for my birthday in February as a surprise. She asked if we could ride rather than drive and a good mate is coming along, so we have options.

    I might retire mine for maintenance and a good cleaning after I reach 3700 miles because I have 3 other bikes that need exercise.

    Not much of an increase, but at least the bike is back and rideable again after its tipover.
