Son Thomas and I had deliberate to do the VMCC Spherical Norfolk Run again in June this 12 months, solely to be discouraged by torrential rain – the run went forward, however the experience right down to the beginning level at Seething would have seen each of us soaked to the pores and skin earlier than we had even began. – So, we selected a run to sunny Hunstanton as an alternative!
We took the W/NG and the SQ4 on a 100 mile run round Norfolk – by the tip of the day each bikes had finished 145 miles from totally different beginning factors.
The SQ4 carried out completely on it is new tyres, with scarcely a drop of oil misplaced and returned 50 mpg. The W/NG alternatively was a bit tough to scorching begin a number of instances (I’ve forgotten the method), shed loads of oil over the again tyre (over full chain case) and the horn fell off, which was simply mounted with some spare bolts from the panniers. We stuffed it up, to search out it was doing about 100 mpg!
We had a good time, and we are going to do it once more quickly.
