Fook that. I went up that way once. Left Southampton in a tee shirt, drove a tank of fuel north & when I got out to fill up thought I was going to die from cold & shock. Not been back since.

I'm gunna agree with the fook that sentiment. Back when I was too young to know better I used to surf the north coast of Ireland and out in Donegal. Bundoran and the like. Some serious waves there but after a day in January coming bloody close to hypothermia I hung up the wetsuit. That sh*t's just not fun!

As for fixes? Yet to have a road bike let me down but when I used to race motocross we had a van packed with everything we'd need. Unfortunately never parked anywhere near the track. Rather than bodge we would regularly tow eachother (subframe to handlebars) with a tie down strap. Most practice tracks meant doing this trough quarries, woodland and stuff that would make Dougie Lampkin wince. I suppose for a bodge fix I did once adjust the powervalve on a Suzuki RM250 with an angle grinder. It was retracting too far off throttle and clipping the piston rings. Does that count ok

Dave, you really are perpetuating the beliefs we have up here about you lot down there with your lager shandy and pink marigolds.

Sounds like a proper larf that does.
All adjustments on Jap bikes should be done with angle grinders, I'm sure it says this in the workshop manuals.

I wouldn't recommend any of it now that age has created commin sense. Though at the time I did confess myself as a 2 stroke tuning genius as my "reprofiling" of the powervalve propped the midrange nicely. Ha ha. ]
