. Ejhara aka John ,s green meanie
Stuart’s significant other made sure he wasn’t going to catch an autumn chill, love the 961 touch on back, what a classic
. We managed 6 in a line this time ,although we did have another Dom turn up later on after this pic was taken. Left to right is Stuart ,Rodger, Moir ( checkout the access norton t shirt) Rob with the SS13, John ( ejhara) , Nigel with the cream 961 & Mark
Chris from Maidenhead dropped in after DGR ride ,sporting a very comfy looking seat , apparently a touch of Aston Martin upholstery,& I must say it looked like it to .
Good to meet up with you guys again, apologies if I didn't make time to speak to you all I think I was still a little shell shocked after the 130+ mile trip
Roger, that Laverda is sweet and was a joy to follow through those long underpasses!
My 961 left her mark on the Ace car park, just like the good 'ol days! She left an even larger puddle in the services car park on the way home
Doesn't your 961 have a catch bottle for the airbox drain?
Overflow in the air box fix bottle?
Right - got that!
Sorry I had to leave just as you arrived, do a proper catch up/chat at the next meet.
Oh dear, where’s that from Mark?
My catch bottle was 9/10 full when I left, I ummed and erred about emptying it but didn't. A combination of sustained 80mph and Nth Circ congested traffic probably helped in filling it to point of overflow. Oil spattered everywhere rearwards now, I wil empty and keep fingers crossed it doesn't fill again in a hurry.
Olivia said it fills every 2k miles and she was spot on, I'm well over 2100 miles now!
This is what a full catch bottle looks like, hmm still room for another couple of cc ....
For those that have FB lookup user Toni Teuntje Harris, she has several albums of photos taken at todays meet including many candid pics with our lovely bikes and their riders either as centrepiece or backdrop to other bikes.... worth a look, too many for me to list here.
Roger enjoying a break from his 961...
Instagram Link. I name that tune in 1,it’s a “Norton Dominator with megaphones”, a passer by remarked there were quieter bikes at the Isle of Man TT this year
Blighty, is that Dommie owner on Access Norton?
I’d really like to pick his brains about his choice of jacket, I like Rukka gear but haven’t found one that’s comfortable with clip ons, his look good.
No he’s not atm , but yes he did have the look just right & was a cool for cats type of guy.& on the V4 wait list
