Not been out for 12 years!
« on: February 15, 2021, 12:57:50 PM »
No, it's not me that's not been out for 12 years - although sometimes this lockdown feels that long!
It's my old (unrestored) RD - last on the road in 2008.
Got it running again on both cylinders after a carb refurb and took it round the block. Needs a bit of adjustment before it's running just right though, but still nice to have it running again.
Might even take it to Sammy Millers' Classic Jap Day this year (C19 permitting) instead of my Kettle.

Well if you get that RD400 finished I'd maybe consider a swap?

Now that is a very big if, on so many counts!  :D

Yes, me too. I've had that RD for nearly 30 years!
But I've always fancied a nice 400C.

It's usually in the spring - March or April but last year because of the pandemic a lower-key event was held on 30 August.
