I had to go to the pharmacy today so took the RS, started first turn and ran like a dream; what I cannot understand it how it can be nearly 30 miles to the pharmacy and only two miles back :lol:
Hmm, I went to pick my prescription up the other day and found it to be two miles there and nearly thirty miles back so obviously I was going to my pharmacy but coming back from yours, as were you.

I mentioned earlier in this post that I'd renovated my MZ and I'd post an update/video.

Here it is.

Enjoy

Cheers GordonH

I love it, it looks fantastic. If I remember right the Honda twin leading shoe was a popular mod back in the day.

I really used to enjoy the one I had, so much so that I got a etz 250 with full fairing when I started despatch riding.

Good music too !

What next another project or enjoy this one ?

Cheers Mark.

Runs sweet as a nut and is more fun than anything with 21bhp has a right to be!

Next project - Looking to do the NC500 on it late Sept when the campsites get quieter......only problem is that I'm in Leicestershire so have 350 miles to get to the starting point, so another 700 miles to add to the NC500. Planning to do the lot on B/unclassified roads, wherever possible.

Next project is to get a 68 Velosolex (French moped with engine on front wheel, been sitting at back of garage for too long) running and registered.

I've then got to sort out a replacement for my R1200RS which was written off by an inattentive driver last October.......another RS, an R,an Oilhead RS or a Guzzi V7? Not sure yet.
