Does that 200 need the optional anchor or have you got the rarity of a cable disc that works?
Surprisingly. After a decent rebuild and new cable. It works as good as a drum brake.



But hardly progress

I can actually slow down

My dad and I have been commuting on the 750 and 550 all week its been great to get out on the bikes again.
There have been a few snags though and both are now of the road for awile.
The 550 had a missfire on 2 it turned out to be a loose HT lead to plug cap. Sorted that and then 2 days later it stopped sparking on 2+3. Turns out the coils duff its also still running very rich as the plugs are black.
The 750 has had a stutter at about half throttle for awile. The carbs are clean and the tap is now clear running so the stutter has gone.
When cleaning the tap I noticed the paint on the tank has bubbled around the head stock and a clip nut has fallen out from behind the Honda emblem.  ::)  The bike still suffers from clutch slip when you give it the beans and no amount of adjustment seens to sort it.So I will be pulling that out at some point too.

The little ER6 has sprung a leak so thats out too.
But even with all the issues its been good to get out.
Next week we are going Aprilia and Guzzi so quite likely more issues to come. ;D

I haven’t fought my way as far back as the 500 yet.

But I do have this.

This picture just doesn't really show how stunning beautiful it is up on the Wolds this evening.

It does look lovely.

Your lucky you can get to the coast.

Since Wales is still in quarantine.
My nearest coastal area is almost as far as Mablethorpe

Just back from a lovely day out.... We have been to Flamborough Head up in Yorkshire. John (Cooleronthecoast) and his wife Yvonne live very close by so we stopped off to meet them and they made us very welcome with lovely cups off coffee.
I was pillion on the 750 K6 today as most of you will know, that's my least favourite position on a bike but it was very comfy and I quite enjoyed taking in the scenery without having to concentrate on the road
