    Default Up North but over in South Western BC, Canada

    Hi folks: At last I'm getting my '81 MHR back on the road after 28 years; yes I know, a crime but here I am. My bike has a UK Up North connection as I bought it from a guy in Edinburgh, I think in '86 or '87. Prior to this I had a '74 GT 860, de-uglified with a Darmah tank, Hailwood seat, 2-into-1 pipes, rear-sets, clip-ons.

    I'm looking forward to sharing with and learning from you all.

    Rick

    Hello and thanks for posting!

    I love seeing a shout from Canada and especially BC, myself and Glasgow (UK) ride buddy Norrie, toured BC in 2015 on BMW's out of Vancouver. We got close to you, as I couldnt resist a ferry ride from Horseshoe bay (didnt enjoy the ride from Nanaimo but LOVED Victoria).

    Only the other day my buddy said we REALLY NEED a BIG road trip, so without hesitation I suggested Coast-2-Coast Canada and yes, he's up for it!

    Good luck with the MHR.


    Regards - Frank

    Thanks for the welcome folks. A good day today; tank, seat, pipes, carbs and rear-sets all off and cleaned. Rear brakes tomorrow and some other stuff. I'm waiting for a quote for brake and carb rebuild kits and need to double check the electrics. I may drop the motor next week and pull the heads to ensure that 28 years of going nowhere hasn't caused any cylinder issues. I feel like a kid again.
