New Year, New Home 2011
Well, how is it going? Sorry for the silence for a while. Hope you had a nice, calm and peaceful Christmas and New year. Me? I was busy for moving around that time and had to sleep surrounded by loads of boxes on Christmas day!
My new flat, built in 20's and my another 2 wheeler without an engine, 50's Rudge. I was surfing on the internet for Rudge Motor cycles then bumped into the bicycles then you know, I got into it.
This is my new workplace for my bikes. I used to have to work on my bikes just simply outside, along High Road, there were some good encounters and some not so good encounters but no more bothering!
Changed the petrol tank again from the Alloy one to repainted black one. And also changed the carb from GP to Concentric 36mm. You may say, " is it because of the difficulty for starting?" but it is not. Once the setting is done correctly, it can be started as easy as the concentric. You may also say "Why not 38mm?", it is because that I already tried that size before so this time, wanted to try one size smaller to see how it goes and the result was very good for riding in town. It responds very quick and smooth at low rev so more fun for in-town use. But this is a semi-racing machine so there is always dilemma if you keep the bike with RRT2 and GP for great Isle of Man riding or for easy town riding.
Helped making the new drapes a bit, lots of hand stitching amazingly!
Motorcycling gives me all good things.
These photos are on the wall of my landlord. He talked to me when my working on my bike about 2 years ago. He used to see me riding Triumph around the local and wondered where I lived and one day he found me. After that, I visited him to see his Velocette and then 2 years later, I ended up in one of his flats. Thank you, Subhash for talking to me on that day otherwise this would have never happened!
