I didn't go in the end Jamie. I'd been at work all day and I would have to rush about to get there in time- I was cold and hungry and just couldn't face 26 miles in the drizzle. I'm workng hard at the moment and finding motivation to do anything other is difficult.

That's a pisser Si was going to ask how your crosser coped, pretty flat route with a fair few gates IIRC so might not have missed much.

BTW where does one go to get some mid '80's rubber, in any condition (no trojan jokes please).

80's rubber? You have to look long and hard my son. You'll just have to compromise and put any old amber wall tyre on. I'm looking for a pair of early spesh tyres for the Stumpy but have just fitted some NOS Farmer Johns for now. Are you going all period correct on that there Wicked? Are you folowing the factory spec as found on First Flight?
