For Suzuki Mick a ideal rear tyre choice for going to the Dragon in 2020 and no worries about then getting off a muddy/flooded rally field.

No unleaded for me! make mine a Buy Sunoco Methanol Racing Fuel https://www.demon-tweeks.com/uk/sunoco-methanol-racing-fuel-aaormethanol-25/

Not a very DIRTY INDIAN V TWIN but a very dirty Yamaha XV1000 TR1 engine.

To keep the inner tube/tyre on the RIM from SPINNING on the Yam V twin cut up old inner tubes and place them between the tube/rim for GRIP!

Our GREY HAIRED sidecar competitors in action! On leaving the scramble course l take a L turn onto a byway https://www.bywaymap.com/

The tunnel/byway under the M6 motorway.

The byway runs parallel with the M6. It had been a very COOL day at this May Day Bank Holiday scramble (Met Office said coldest May Day weekend on record) So l was ready for a cosy warming COAL fire and l found this delight on the back road from Stone to Uttoxeter at a farm come pub.

The farmer/publican his called “Romping Robert”

By for now and ’Ne’er cast a clout till May be out’
