today I rode the A9 and A99 to Wick Caithness to get the front brake sorted on my Cali, beautiful sunny day for a ride, waste of time regarding the brake issue as the wrong pads had been sent grrrr so back next week fingers crossed, had a ride from Wick to Helmsdale in Sutherland, still lots of camper vans seemingly stuck in 1st gear, pain in the ass.

booked a tyre change for the Norge, reckon that 11,126 miles out of the rear is doing well and need to change before the rainy season.  Just need to take it off tonight and get it to the workshop tomorrow.  when i did the front one in June i ended up spending £120 in the bloody shop, so going tomorrow with just enough to pay for the tyre and no credit card.

dashed out for a blast before the rain comes... a mistake, I left it too late and every road was choked with Friday afternoon traffic.
Lets hope it stays dry (as currently forecasted) for the Squadra run to Lymington on Sunday...9:00am meet at Sammy Millers. Tomorrow looks to be a write off, unless you like testing waterproofs

The rain subsided, the sun came out, so I managed a rare opportunity to drag the S3 out and get over to the Oxford Norton Owners Club Café Racer day - always a good range of machines there. It was a pleasure to finally meet Barry of this here forum and he even bought me a shandy for which I thank him. Also nice to see my old mucker John of Motonero of Bristol there on one of his tasty specials with mate Martin on a tasty 1976 BMW R100 special. Not many Guzzis there apart from Bazzer's well-used Spada, my well-used S3 and John's 950 Special, a Monza and a Breva - but - (and Barry might disagree) most interesting bike of the day was probably this Norton Rotary 588cc café racer, followed by a 1956 Norton Dommie with Commando engine special. Wonderful!

I don't disagree at all. That Norton Rotary was pretty special. Clearly lots of time and effort spent on it, and - I'm guessing - more than little cash, too. Bet there's a heck of back story there.

For my money, the Triton triple takes some beating. Looking forward to hearing that in action at Kop Hill, if I remember to make it. The photo of it here is from Cassington, earlier in the year.

Always nice to see a Montjuic. I didn't think there were any left in the wild.

There's was lovely patina'd BSA that made me smile. And a couple of (much cleaner than mine) Guzzis. Couple of Morini 3 and a Halfs - unusual to see more than one in one place, at the same time.  Also a Breva, I think? And a well used 500 Monza.

Happy that I made the effort, especially as @Italianmotor and John Motonero turned up.

Hi, I rode my new Cali III back from it's previous home in Pershore to it's new home in the Derbyshire Dale.  Cracking run and great to be back on a solo Cali again. 1989 and its only done 7,000 miles, I'm tempted to put it in one of those vac bags and bring it out in ten years when it has become a 'classic', but I think I'll just ride it instead.  Trouble is now I might have to sell my NTX to make some space in the garage and put some money back in the bank.
Everyday is a good day to ride a bike, but some days are better than others.
