    I've been waiting for someone to note the irony.

    PS... she's obviously too young to know what a "2 stroke" is (in so many ways)

    Greta approves :photog:D... I wonder if the sailboat she took to the US had a trawling motor, and if so, how it converted energy to motion.

    I just had a look Stafford Show Grounds, the exhibition hall is Bingley Hall.:y0!

    From Wiki:
    Bingley Hall (also known as New Bingley Hall to distinguish itself from the Bingley Hall in Birmingham) is an exhibition hall located in Stafford, England, on the site of the Staffordshire County Showground. During the 1970s and 1980s it was a very popular concert venue.
    Notable past performers include Bob Marley & The Wailers, Status Quo, Yes (3 sell out nights), The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd,[1] The Who, Rush, Black Sabbath, Genesis, Santana, David Bowie, ZZ Top, Motörhead, ABBA, Eagles, Kiss, Queen, Rainbow, and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

    One of my favourites not mentioned was Richie Blackmores Rainbow, Cozy Powell did the 1812 Overture as a Drum Solo. :photog

    This is better than Napalm. I'm using classic race gas 105 octane, fully leaded with 927 castor. I am truly a friend of the planet!!!!!!!!!!!

    Machined the case for the lock her up clutch, needs fettling by hand to fit the extension ring, might not do that today due to the birthday of Mrs Wildebeest yesterday leaving me with a slightly unsteady hand. I think I'm going to replace the window with an ally disc, might look good anodised black so black ally black. Also I can leave the ugly m6 weights hidden away. I think the window/lock up combination is all a bit RuPaul.

    love the smell of 927, hate the gummy-ness and how bad it loads up. I became a real fan of motul 800 double ester, much cleaner burning and didn’t leave my pipes full of goo.

    Just ordered a litre, but how does it smell? I use Motul 7100 in my Buell motor and un burnt it smells delicious, I'd happily dress a salad with it.

    800 double ester smells sweet, a lot less smoky than 927, but still let’s out a good belch.

    running old air cooled stuff at 13000rpm it was motul that saved my top ends, I’d have to run 927 at 25:1 to survive but then they’d load up real bad at idle, the pipes would be caked up, etc. motul I ran 40:1, and literally no build up in ports, pipe etc, much cleaner.

    water cooled they say you can run it 100:1, I’m not that brave.
