Steak Frites!

None of this instant energy pasta stuff for Englishmen! Good old steak frites for Olde Bobbe. I have no idea if it mooed or neighed previously but it tasted very nice, good job I answered her for it to be bien cuit rather than chopped raw though..
By the time I got home after a post midnight dash from the ferry I had completed 1321 miles on 81 litres of petrol, an average of 74 miles per gallon - excellent!

Ze French Stick

No trip would be complete without some sort of incident but instead of seizing the engine or crashing our incident was just the left hand mirror stalk breaking off where my magic stillsons had cracked the tube while adjusting things before setting off. A few zip ties and a genuine thank you to the French for providing CPAM cellulose polystrand arboreal material beside all Routes Nationales meant that a piece of French Stick in the literal sense effected a repair!

French test

Well I promised you a test to France and here is the proof - La Rochelle, having gone the long way round via Le Havre, Quimper, Benodet, Concarneau and Carnac in Brittany.
Several high bridges tested the bike's hill climbing ability at Honfleur, St Nazaire and Nantes and despite their large scale and crosswinds we both survived.

Thirty years after the BMF Rally first came to Peterborough Miss Federation 1976 and 1978 returned to the Show and posed with Blez's 1980 Quasar. The first Quasar was sold in December 1976. Photo: Paul Blezard

Anita (behind) and Vivienne (in front) were the Miss Federations of the BMF Show in 1978 and 1976 respectively. They were reunited at the 2007 event and I persuaded them to squeeze themselves into my Quasar. PNB

different braking

Hi, found this website when looking up brakes. Interesting idea on making steering better?

Monty's V50 2007

This shot shows a close-up of the Tait hub centre steering on the V50 which is now over 20 years old. It gives much more lock than a Difazio unit.
The fuel tank has been moved from the original position above the engine to behind the rider. Photo: Paul Blezard May 2007

Monty's V50 Creasey-fied

The V50 Guzzi Phasar now sports a tail unit like the Mk3 Banana's added by Royce Creasey, along with a rear fuel tank.
Unfortunately Monty no longer fits comfortably into it! Photo: Paul Blezard May 07

CG limitations - incorrections dispelled

It seems it's about time I fended off Arthur Middletons attempts to 'correct' my comments on the limitations of low CG motorcycle designs.

I beleive the original article spoke for itself if properly read and understood, but some have asked for a clarification upon Arthurs comments - so here it is.

You'd never think that these two machines are based on exactly the same chassis and power train would you? PNB Photo: Paul Blezard
