    Washed and polished the Norton, then rode it all round town yesterday evening with a big ass grin on my face, damn I love that bike. Might get an open face helmet so everyone can see me smiling and be jealous.:ricky

    Washed the KTM and took a pic of it. Didn't ride as then I'd want to keep it :bluduh

    Thanks mate yeah! The fuel had gone off so took ages to get it running. Notice how fuel just doesn't last long at all these days? Towards dark I headed home (Lucas electrics means headlights are purely ornamental:lol3) and noticed it starting to get a miss up, I think its time to pull the tank etc and give it and the carbs a flush.

    I see you've swapped out the radiator was that a new Suzuki one or something aftermarket?:ear

    They don't put fuel stabiliser in any more. But you can DIY - get it from a mower place and SCA (I think).
