Congrats on getting her roadworthy. Why the fuel filters? Is your tank dirty/rusty inside? I never run them but i almost always clean the tanks (on the bikes I'm going to keep anyways)

I had cleaned the tank with phosphoric acid but I checked it again last week and it's started to rust up a bit. So until I get it off and give it another clean I'll run the filters just in case.

Friend in Wales tells me weather is really mild and nice for riding at present?

Your friend is right on that front PJ. It's been lovely. Getting colder but still very much riding weather.

Looks like you have some real nice side  roads. Any major issues with tractors filling them up without warning?

Ha ha yes! But not so much now that harvest and spreading is over.

You're right though there are some great roads around here (in Hampshire more so than Devon). We're not too far from Salisbury Plain. I used to ride my pushbike there as a kid and I've always wanted to take a motorbike there so will have to make a day of that (and get some suitable tyres).

Also going to get up to Wales to the Black Mountains at some point (probably Spring). You familiar?

I rode around a bunch of that when I had CD175 (and 'L' plates  ;D ) many, many years ago. Had a friend living within sight of (forgot the damn name of the tower?  ::) ) Blew big ends out of 175 chasing a GT500 near Stonehenge, ended up being towed 136 miles home
Muckspreading at least gives you an idication the roads can be a 'bit slippery'  ;)
Haven't been in the black mountains for at least 17 yrs, don't think a lot changes, (except the extra police as it's pretty well known for being a 'sunday racetrack')

It looks beautiful there. Haven't been to the Brecons or that kind of area since I was a kid. Will probably aim for the reservoir.

Bunch of bike magazines have used that dam from various angles when they road test (I first saw it in a 1950's Motorcyclist magazine my father had ?? yrs ago) Last time I saw it was Motorcycle News about 20(?) yrs ago when I stopped subscribing
