Best Laid Plans...

Ariel Club Welsh Borders Rally this weekend - set off on a fully loaded 38 Red Hunter on Friday afternoon. Managed 8 miles before running out of compression, which returned a minute or so later, another 4 miles and it stopped again. So limped back home and loaded up the Fireblade.

Good turn out at the rally. Loads of beer and nonsense talked. Saturday run out and I have a choice - go out on the Blade or ride shotgun in this (1930 Ariel Model B outfit):-

No contest really. Never been in a sidecar before and I was bit nervous but turned out to be a cracking day out. We also ascended Long Mynd, quite a steep climb for an old combo.

Best laugh I've had on bikes in ages.
