It's very long, but I watched it a bit at a time whilst there was garbage being watched on tv. It's a nice view of what to expect riding in Europe and the Eldorado coped admirably.

Watched half of it whilst I was supposed to be tidying the shed. Filming and stills very well done. Well worth a look if you have the time. It certainly whetted my appetite for our summer trip to Corsica and Sardinia. I'd love to be able to film the trip as the Aussies did, but I'd be bound to mess it up.

There was a lot of editing involved too!

Thanks Jmee, that's a real treat.

How's the Ambo project?

Cheers

It's running, just got to find time to finish it. I hope it will be on the road when the weather warms up.
I hope the Eldorado is running OK. I noticed requests for a cylinder head.

Excellent! 

Yes, Eldo stripped spark plug hole thread and I had it helicoiled - they screwed it up, damaged the head and it spat the plug out one day . Had another repair done but I'm not convinced it's strong enough. Loads of RHS heads but lefts a rarity! Finally got a late Ambo one from the US, await its arrival. Will then need new guides I expect... not something I've replaced before..

Sorry to hear that. The guides on my Ambo are not perfect, but I thought I would get it running before I make the decision to replace or not.
I find it hard find time during the day and in the evenings the thought of freezing in a cold shed does little to motivate me.

Yes, should be able to find the tolerances somewhere and use a dial gauge to see if the guides are within spec like in the second method here

Dave, which route are you intending? I'm considering going down through Italy then across to Sicily/Sardinia/Corsica and then Route Napoleon North and home. Choke point is the Sicily>Sardinia ferry (once a week apparently) Always interested to hear of alternatives which may be better thought out than mine own.

Our route is rather circuitous.Caen to Toulouse to visit friends. Then on to Marseilles and the ferry to Corsica.Then to Sardinia.I'm not sure about the next move,I haven't decided yet but I must include a visit to friends in the Ardeche on the way home.
