Good call, I will try and fish the Triumph out and see if it will start! Not too far from me in my old happy hunting ground. I worked in the Leather Bottle in Blackmore in my youth!

Ha - I know it well. I used to pass it both ways on my daily commute to the Martins (the newsagents) head office in Brentwood.

Was that near Kelvedon Hatch? I seem to recall working on a conversion from a big old house into offices for Martins in the mid 70's I had a week or two work labouring, lifting carpet tiles and cutting doorways in blockwork walls. :D

An informal but well organised event, plenty of non British machines to add interest .
Several Guzzis , Cali , lemon , v50, loop , v11 , and a Roamer with non standard
silencers that sounded nice .

Yeah - that's the one. I started my second career there, as a trainee programmer, in 1991.

I didn't see the Roamer. Spoke to the guy with the black V50 - tried to coax him down to our next branch meeting. He's a fully paid up member and everything.

Butch, you have a black V50, you are not suffering from bi-polar problems all of a sudden? :?

To be sure I'll have to wait and see if I turn up at the next meeting I suppose.
