Hi everyone

Many thanks for the comments. Yes Liz the cake got here ok but fear it won't make the return journey, and yes there has been a Guinness taken, just for the iron content you understand.

The last couple of days have been spent trying some new calipers on the 400,but sadly I think they need a service as no matter how hard we tried we couldn't get them to bleed, so will strip and rebuild them when  I get chance.

So it was back to standard ones which bled through first time.

Apart from that we've done a general check over and all seems well with both bikes.

The family we are staying with have been great and I now have a new pit crew in the form of Jack and Josh who Steve is training up to his high standard.

Whilst working in the garage  a red cross parcel of coffee and freshly made shortbread, still warm, was bought to us. Thats it I'm not leaving here, the shortbread alone is enough to keep me here.

I'm amazed at how much everyone here is into the racing and have had offers of help from everyone we've met.

I've also found out today that my entry for Armoy has been accepted which is great news.

I was told last night that the paddock for Tandragee is like a swamp, so fingers crossed it will dry out by Friday.

The weather for the weekend is looking ok at the moment and I hope it stays that way.

Until next time
