A muffler for the 961 ? What happened ?Finally got an excuse to take a bike out today, but it wasn't the 961, instead I chose a bike that was likely to give me the least aggravation and after a 7 month lay up it didn't disappoint. No electrics issues on the Injun, fired up without hesitation and gave me 50 miles of pure face in the breeze adrenaline filled pleasure, on empty roads the likes I haven't seen for decades.
PS: that little bundle to the left is the new silencer.... still not fitted yet, my heart just isn't in it
On way back back from the annual MOT test ( ministry of transport) which us brits have to tolerate once a year when bike reaches 3 years old .
I stopped by here for a photo opp, the planes are inside the building & couldn’t get the bike inside without anyone noticing, RAF Manston was also a full blown USAF base in the fifties,lot of americans married local girls & took em back to the states View attachment 14893
Yep it is Tony , & like other bankrupt stock & shady dealings the 700 acre airport was bought for £1 ( but £10,000,000 debt) & almost a huge web of slight of hand dealings, off shore companies , Cayman Islands, struck off lawyers , directors known of fraudulent practices, developers, brown envelopes, public enquires reminds me of another company in the news atm !Hello Richard , Is this the museum Katherine and I visited ?
True but there is a problem, it is the right silencer that needs replacing and the new one is on the floor on the left flank. I could move it to the right, only problem there is an H-D SX250 2-stroke in a pile of bits on that side (too dark in photo) also awaiting attention.... just not enough hours in the day to get these 'projects' on the go. Instead I took my Honda 500 Quad out on my field, switched it to rear 2 wheel drive, locked the diff and had an hours fun 'rear end drifting' on the fresh new grass that's coming throughThey’re getting closer Mark !!
Here she is hard at work in 4wd mode, electric shift gearbox.... but great fun on wet grass
It's just crossed my mind, this ol'girl is 10 years old now, It has sat in the barn uncovered most Winters, gets an annual oil/filter change.... and has NEVER let me down..... nothing has ever needed replacing, still has the original battery! Norton just didn't put any effort into the design of the 961, SG and SS just took the money and ran
