The van was sociable, and good for anyone who wanted to drink a lot, but we'll survive without it! Might even be a nice little walk in good weather, work off some of that pasta and wine ....

Now that I can take a deep breath after the season.

I see you guys are discussing the dates of May 15th & 16th for 2015 for my annual British Invasion, so I am blocking off that weekend next year for Brit Bikes only. As usual for those that haven't stayed with us before you must call or email me to book, if you go online it will say that we are booked.

Six months and counting!

Hey Windy...do you know if people are planning to go early to yer campground? Reason I ask is because Mike Cheyne from England has leave from May 13th to June 3rd and wants to come over. Would anyone object to making it the following weekend? May 22-23...would make it easier and better for him anyway.

Melissa?

I have not heard anything yet as to early arrivals but the two goons from NH usually come early along no butt from kneebraskie. as to a change of date I am not looking to do that as the mid month has been the norm for as long as I have coming on it.

Well...last May it was 16th-18th! Obviously, whenever you want to have it is when it will be. Just thought I'd ask as I think it will be hard for Mr Cheyne to make it that weekend. My memory is far from perfect but I seem to remember it varying some from year to year.

Cheers

Like every year, the date conflicts with one of my dual sport rides. Being with webmaster for the DS rides consortium, and that my local club "works" the event, I really have to be there.

Tried to do both the Year of the Fog. After a predawn ride down the mountain Sunday in the fog, and an interaction with a law enforcement professional, and the mental fog from the fog, I was unable to complete the DS ride.

Gonna do the DS weekend, which also allows my 12yr old daughter a ride weekend of her own on her bike.

Just cant do both rides and be able to enjoy them.
Besides, my BSA still isnt done {although I expect to start changing that in a few weeks, with the help of a buddy!{

Want to send me a "need" list and I can see what I can come up with? January isn't that far away and I'll have extra room in the chair.

I really dont think it will be a parts issue. On the last ride the tranny would not shift into any gear above 2nd.
I am thinking it is a problem with the shifter quadrant, probably a spring.

Just a guess, been sitting for almost 7 years now. Before that, it sat for 24, when I put a few thousand miles on it. It sat before that from the mid '70s...

I have a buddy who is probably as good a Brit bike mechanic as I am a painter, he's gonna help me out with it. He'll be joining us at Broxton as well.

I have a parts engine with the tranny cluster and shifter already out. If I do find a parts need, I'll be sure to touch base!

I have a dozen or so complete transmissions....and a cutaway case (thanks to Hp by Stan for that idea) so you can see how your trans works before it goes back in your engine.

But...these things are really simple and your buddy will probably find the problem. Some times a broken indent spring will cause it to hang up....but when it has happened to me it was stuck in one gear and that's all I could get....made for some interesting rides home. smile

Just let me know if there's anything I can send your way...just trying to help.

It shifted once ... the first couple conflicted with Mother's Day, I think, so since then it's always been the third weekend in March, however that falls. Easy to remember and I know not to schedule anything else on top of it ...

If I can help by picking up Mike the Geordie at an airport and bringing him straight there, I'll do it ....

Probably no way to help unless Mike can get off a week early. I will be checking with him. If he can make it early I will be pickin im up in Columbus, most likely. If he can't than I guess he will be missing it because he said he gets home on the 13th. Too bad...we'll find other things to do.

Will you guys have room for one more next year? I was so envious looking at all the pictures from the past rides. Finally have my T160 sorted and would really like to make the event in 2015. Hopefully someone else from Florida would like to ride up too.

Union called my cell, wanting me to bid vacation for 2015...I told them I needed the 15th thru the 17th of May, and it's set...Any other date I would'nt be able to make, not that THAT'S a big deal.., but just had to bid according to what I've read here. I don't have a Vintage British Bike right now, kind of in-between (have my eyes on one, and will be in my garage next weekend, but NOT MINE, Hey, it's a start!) I do have A British Bike, however, my beloved 2005 Triumph "America" that I will be bringing, unless things change and I'm able to "acquire" this bike I have my eyes on. The "Pastor" is 70+ years old, and has some illness, but speaking to him on the phone about the bike, he says he has too much "attachment" to it to sell to me. I have talked him into letting me bring the bike to my "toasty" garage for some TLC, and to get it out of the weather, he say's "Come and get it", so hopefully I'll go get it this weekend...It's the '72 T120 I fixxed up for him a couple of years ago for a Church service, (The "immaculate resurrection") and only a few serial numbers away from my first T120. Hopefully I will somehow inherit the bike, or he may let me "borrow" it for the 3 State Ride...We'll see, but not holding my breath....


If you love it, let it go. If it comes back, you've highsided!"

YO Windy

Hey man there's a few things I want you to get ready to do to my bike this year...
I'll send a list at some point, and we can dial in in.
It'd be convenient to work it out that the bike was finished right around time for the TSMR.

Yes, still have you in my phone. I'll PM a list, and then call later in the Winter to set up my bringing it down to you, maybe sometime in April? Or what ever's convenient. The bike is going to be on display in New York til Mid February, and I might "shop it around" while it's up there to see if anyone else wants to use it.

I'll be in touch then. Thanks!
