The Muvafuka's are doing a spot of touring this year, we're going West young man, and we thought as it wasn't raining, we'd all meet up, and have us a mooch around a Jumble. So it was out with the Hundred Dollar, and I hit that thumbstart, 3 turns of the engine, and the ground shook. Then it was off to meet up with *Marcus the Accent*...

[Linked Image]

$5 of Gas, and we were off to meet up with Fuzzy, Rusty and the Mong, where we all pulled into an 'Eat as Much as you can' place for breakfast...

[Linked Image]

Sorry no photo of what we had, my plate was overflowing, and I needed both hands to stop the food falling on the floor.. wink

Bloody marvellous it was too, one more mushroom and I'd have exploded. So very carefully we waddled back out to the bikes, the Mong never had his Muvafuka bike, and the Bombay Express, seen in this photo...

[Linked Image]

Just would NOT fire up, he was riding it to test it out for the John Bull Rally, cos he's been fiddling with it AGAIN. And now it won't play, don't know why he keeps fiddling, but he does. I showed him what happens if you fiddle, cos I'd been fiddling with the Hundred Dollar front brake lever, and now the bloody brake light is on all the time. But he'll never learn, and so he just kept kicking away...

[Linked Image]

Don't think they make them Thumb Starters in India yet, but I feel sure he'll get one soon for that thing... laughing

Then off to the first of the two jumbles, we'd arranged to hook up with our *Prospect* Muvafuka, Kev, as he's got loads of Hundred Dollar bikes now, and he said he needed stuff. Got there paid the 2 entry, and off we mooched...

Saw this wonderful machine, it had been ridden there...

[Linked Image]

Carried on looking for our *Prospect*...

[Linked Image]

Seems them Hundred Dollar people, do have a normal side...

[Linked Image]

Another wonderful machine...

[Linked Image]

Then I see this, look very closely, then ponder this...After putting chain lube on, can that rear brake work...?

[Linked Image]

Are y'all thinking THIS yet...?

[Linked Image]

Well after a good old mooch, and with my 10 front tyre, we loaded up and buggered off to the NEXT jumble of the day, bloody loads there...

[Linked Image]

[Linked Image]

Some top high powered machines...

Loads of stalls and stuff...

[Linked Image]

and they even had their own wonderful machines there like this beauty...

[Linked Image]

Then after ALL that mooching, we just had to take a chance, it's a dangerous game, but we don't care. Why we even had a woman with us...

[Linked Image]

A woman, BUT, and that's a he let us down AGAIN, sort of but, we had a NO SHOW on Captain Kev. Perhaps he was getting the bilge pumps working on the Submarine, or perhaps he simply forgot he said he was coming. Who knows...??

But we ALL had a wonderful day, out on the Hundred Dollar bikes, and in the Sun too. And I'm well pleased with me cheap tyre, fed up being ripped off when its tyre change time, and them Harley type, swap the tyres when buying a brand new bike, so they can have White walls.. shocked

Less dangerous than living on a volcano, lad.
The fumes of them make your mind go weird.

These guys think about "going" all day long, but never "stopping", do they?

Look at the brakes on that thing.

Got another half-squirrel today, it's a half squirrel because Alec accidentally grabbed a box of hollow-points when he loaded the rifle .... !

I stopped believing for a little while this morning. Journey is really going to be upset.

Ger lad, you're SPOT on.. :bigt
Of COURSE, it's the Volcano, why the hell didn't I think of that..? Perhaps its the Diesel fumes getting to me brain.. wink

Lannis lad, HALF a Squirrel.. shocked

Is that like Eric the Half Bee, do you need a license for Half a Squirrel lad, I can bring over a TV license with the word TV crossed out, and Squirrel written in Crayon if you like... wink

Can you make socks out of Squirrel pelts, might match the Coon skin lad, I'd LOVE a couple of tails, they'd look fantastic on the bikes, or perhaps a Head mounted on the front Mudguard of the FORTY INCHER, just THINK of the Beer that yarn would get me.. laughing

Shaun,ref brake light.
Have a go at trying to get the twist grip assembly and the switch housing closer together on the bars, maybe they are just a tad to far apart so the switch is always on,(maybe).
