    surprise!

    this shot here is the lane between dartington and rattery (sort of between totnes and buckfastleigh, tq9). pretty close to the moors, actually. which is a good thing, as the moors are my favourite play ground. let me know when you're around!

    Annoyingly, my purchase of the ES250/2 fell through but after some help I've found and struck a deal on a 1978 TS250-1 :-)

    You'd prefer it on the road to a Trophy anyway.

    I finally got the 'new' MZ delivered to our Stranraer campsite on Saturday evening. This required a 100 mile ride home the next day but, sadly, didn't bump into any of the returning Tighnabruaich MZ Riders. The bike goes really well but it's quite a while since I rode a bike with an SLS front brake so some major recalibration of riding technique was required!
    Very happy with it though and I'll definitely make the next meeting.

    That sounds ominous?
    Also, the TS250 isn't meant to tick over is it?!

    Nothing serious and nothing to do with the MZ boys anyway....
    None of my Supa5s or other Zeds for that matter tick over.

    Very tidy looking bike! I had an identical one from nearly new on which I did over 60,000 trouble-free miles of London despatching in less than a year - they're definitely built to be used.

    He has a pleased look on his face because he thinks he's going to buy it from you !

    Unfortunately he can barely walk now never mind ride a bike. Still holds onto the dream though. Old age can be a b*****d.

    That's too bad, that he is cheated from a small pleasure.

    That's true at old age is it's own special cruelty. But we must trust in something besides the strong arm of the flesh because it will always let us down.

    I've just put one of these on my bike, what a transformation - Grimeca can keep their 4LS complexities!!

    Why wasn't I invited? I still love those ES250/2s!

    Plus, are those Runes taped to your tank?
