    Hey everyone ^_^ finally found some time between riding and restoring all the classic bikes to get out on my Blade and scrub the new tyres in a bit. My daily rider this year has been my 1967 Norton 650SS in all weathers.

    Decided to head out towards Matlock starting at the Cat and Fiddle an see how far we could get to say it was wet and cold was an epic understatement. By the time we made it to Matlock after the washed out roads the road closed signs were out so we spun it an headed back towards Monyash for a quick break.

    Had a slight issue throughout the ride as she needs a new battery so had to bump start her a few times!

    Here's a video clip of the ride ^_^ edited on my ancient mac the wind was far to bad to use most of the audio is a few bits in the video though an where we are stopped later on where you can hear the bike.

    Hope you all enjoy.

    Looks like a good run mate, albeit wet and cold! I have to say that last picture is doing nothing for my OCD :D:eek:

    Have you done any threads regarding any of your rebuilds at all?

    I’d certainly find it to interesting mate and I’m certain other members would too, if you get time of course!
