That echoes a piece of advice from my Dad when I was 15 and fired up the Lambretta GP200 I'd been rebuilding for the first time.

It fired up third kick and continued to run, belching two stroke fumes into the cold garage.

"Bit of advice for the future. When something goes right first time try to look as though you knew it would, not like it's a complete surprise!" 8-)

F*** me Dave. That sounds rough. The engine has a right Diesel type knock. If I were you I'd take a look at it mate.

Concerned of Warrington.

Good video that. It was nice to "be out riding" especially on roads that I'm familiar with.
I was slightly concerned that I was not looking far enough ahead though! Also not happy sitting that high :lol:

Bike looks and sounds great, seems very zippy too. Carry on proving and posting DD!
