Hi everyone...been visiting here over the years and finally joined up.
I live in the south of France just at the foot of the Larzac plateau near the Millau bridge.
I own a much modified T3 which is just being repainted after a complete strip down and rebuild,After 160,000 miles in all weather and a rest of a few years I'm looking forward to riding her again especially as she now has LM heads ,944 barrels and pistons and carbs, a P3 cam and sachse digital crank ignition and regulater/rectifier combo.I've owned this bike since 1991 and bought it with 22,000 miles on the clock.
I also have a 650 NTX which is next on the list of modifications , this time to the chassis....18' front wheel and 4 pot brembo front brake so that she becomes a bit more nimble and brakes properly.This bike also has a sachse ignition and I'll probably put a set of emulators in the forks but befor all that work can start the T 3 needs to be finished.

Hi Chris, good to hear from you.  Sounds like the new life you have put into your T3 should indeed be fun to ride. Thumbs Up  Here's hoping for the right weather soon.

Well it's  cold and raining cats and dogs here so it's likely that there is snow about 20 miles north and 2500 feet higher !

Welcome, I am jealous of the fantastic roads you have in that area. Many fond memories of exploring the Tarn valley.

Are we to assume that Monsewer Macron has summoned this weather to quell the fire of the Yellow Vests?

Hi Chris, welcome,it's a lovely area you live in, I've visited the Tarn Gorge and Millau a few times on my T3 and I like the old road north to Marveljois. I am always hoping to make another trip. Your mods sound good, please keep us up to date on how they work out.
