That seems such a waste, when you could be having lots of fun like this:

Next June goi to the IOM so you can open it up to see what it will really do on the out of town no speed limit sections. 8) 8) 8) Looking forward to you reporting back to OOF on that one. ::) ::) ::)

You could do a few practice track days first to setup the suspension before then. 8) 8) 8)

Several years ago, my father-in-law had a C90, which he lent me whilst my car was out of action. It was surprisingly good, and the only motor bikie that ever hurt me - I came off it on a gravelly bend after being forced to brake hard!
It was fun to ride, though, if slow, so if you ever consider selling it, Albs, I am interested. :y 8)

But he could go out in 'style' on the IOM rather than just sitting around waiting for the grim reaper to turn up. :o :o :o :P :P :P

 He still could go and find himself a Royal Enfield Robin.
500cc diesel single so chip oil power resumes.
0-60mph is about 40 seconds on normal diesel so......

If you mean my beloved Sunbeam, Albs - you already know the answer to that!

Could always bolt a turbo on to it. Sounds like an interesting project.  :y :D

What did you think of it, Albs?
When I rode my father-in-laws C90, the first thing I noticed was no petrol tank with knee grips on it - felt weird!  :o

It felt hideous to ride in every possible way. Don't think anyone who knew me spotted me, but I still felt deep shame.  :-[ :D
My Suomi Bayliss replica helmet must have looked a bit out of place.  ;D

If anybody laughs at him he can get his own back by telling them, I have a car as well, it's a mighty Robin Reliant. :P :P :P :-[ :-[ :-[
