I couldn't let the Bombardier stay parked up any longer. With the Can-am project in Australia taking a back seat for a few weeks, it was time to wheel out "old faithful".
Well the battery was well past its best but that wasn't going to prevent me riding. I checked the frame for two-stroke oil and half-inched a gallon of dad's petrol. Several kicks over later and I guessed she was flooded. Plug out and dried, engine kicked over to clear the crankcase and then the plug back in. A few kicks later and she filled the shed and garden with the sweet smell of two-stroke fumes once more!
Then a quick blast up to Coleford and another MOT from Beales! Success - and the return journey consisted of a few local trails I know. The incredible scenery in the Wye Valley really is something else and not a soul to be seen!
