Is that the lwb version or just the angle of the pic? Looks tidy!

SWB that, the extra bit on a LWB is between the back of the sliding door and the back wheel.

Ah right. What’s the plan with it, Mali? Keeping as is or kitting out as a dedicated camper?

It's a SWB. Keep as is for the time being and see how it goes, then consider options later

Taking it from 140 to 170hp is tempting though

Factor in a new clutch and flywheel too if adding more horses. Slippery slope!

You'll need the extra BHP to win more races though, which should net you more money to spend.

Van news! we're now used to backing it on to the drive. It does 40mpg fact fans, if you bang the cruise control on at 65mph. Also, found unexpected underseat storage! All in all, I am very pleased, and it is being loaded up with everything in the world for camping at Green Man this week.

Put a couple of ice blocks in there and use it as an extra cooler.

Nope, this was Birmingham to Stratford Upon Avon. It’s great fun being in a group that large and watching the reactions from bystanders.

That's a lot of people! Were you nervous riding in such a big group?

No, it’s not too bad when you’ve done a few. There’s a lot to keep an eye out for, as you’ve got no idea how safe and sensible a rider everyone around you is, but going through the city it’s 30 and 40 mph limits which helps. There’s also people stopping unexpectedly on the vintage scooters as they stall, overheat or break down.

Once you get to open roads people space out more and there’s more time to relax.

I don’t know if anyone did a proper count but I’d estimate 250ish people there.

Can't beat the sweet smell of 250 middle aged men in extreme heat.

When that many two stroke engines fire up, it’s noticeable.
