Not long....
« on: May 14, 2017, 18:18:31 »
It's that time again lads.....wahoo !
Less than two weeks until I leave for the TT. It's a bit of a panic here in southeast Kent, as I've decided to take both of my 500s this year, and while the Alpina 500 is all good and ready, the other is far from it. I foolishly decided on a refurb before the TT, and have created an almost impossible dead-line for myself.
I've opted for an outrageous 70s style, rising sun paint job....new wheels, new brakes, new carbs.....and loads of other stuff. Got my work really cut out.
Anyone else going?

It's a week today.......full days work on the bike tomorrow, hoping I can get it all done. The bodywork is now lacquered and looking cool. Got my rear wheel back from the builder today, so it's an early start.

Can't beat a deadline to work to, especially when it's the IOM.  Hope all goes well!

Gawjuss!!! Have a great week watching the ragged rascals racing round the ragged rock. If you want to watch a brilliant sunset whilst eating some of the best queenies on the island then get yourself over to the Niarbyl restaurant at Niarbyl bay on the south west of the island.

I know Niarbyl well......one of the many beauty spots we visit every year. In fact we know Nigel the proprietor there too !
Look out for a film called "Keeping mum"...starring Maggie Smith, Rowan Atkinson, and the late Patrick Swayze. Filmed on the Island, with one particular scene at this fisherman's cabin at Niarbyl !
