A friend also coming if that's ok?

Many thanks Chizz,

A friend - John Nichols would like to ride up as well - if that's OK please?
He rides a Triumph 800 Tiger. And I want to try out my Sertao.

Kind regards
Col

Jake had mentioned about this meet in another thread of mine. It will be nice to see you all.

I will try to try to come on Saturday just for the day. It depends on my trip to Brighton this week. I am starting tomorrow. I have taken the whole week off to do the trip.

I am still trying to get the bilge pump rebuilt after a complete winter 6 month restoration and modification into a HPN dakar and painted up like a tarts handbag. But the clutch bearing is knackered so waiting for that from motorworks then the new front brake is still an issue with a few problems getting everything to fit and line up correctly. I hope to have her running and back together this weekend and MOT done at latest next week. I then need to ride her a bit to test everything before setting off north for the weekend with El Chico and his mate. If there are many more problems with the build I then i may struggle to get sorted in time. Keeping the fingers crossed and still looking forward to the weekend. Bye the way chizz I should be there on time this time round as i have now got one of them new fangled Garmin things - with maps inside it - but its so complicated to work the damn thing I leave it switched off. Much better fun just getting lost.

Borrow my "spare bike" Jake?

Hi Jake - if you get stuck with the Bilge Pump not being ready, why not borrow my KTM Adventure? I want to try out the Sertao, so why not?
Hope that's OK, not as good as using your "tarts handbag!"....

Cheers
Col

Hi Col - Logistics might be a bit of a problem you and your ktm are way down in Yorkshire I am up here and then I am not sure if my insurance lets me use other bikes in any case ( as I have a classic bike policy now - have to check that one) but if all else fails and if its feasable then I may well take you up on that one thanks very much Col.
I am hopeful and fairly confident that the bilge will be working by then though.

Jake.
