Re: Gearbox problems

Thanks for all you guys' assistance on the gearbox problem. I have read the articles and I guess that as my box was built in 1978 it was one of those that were thrown together. Having spoken to Alan Layzell about the problem he has suggested a local Norfolk motorcycle repairer who should be able to ...

Parking is very secure as the driveway to the house is through trees and not visible from the road. The accommodat...

Triking Get Together 2013

Following the success of the New Forest meeting in May I took it on myself to provide a write up of the event. This can be seen under the "Events" section on the site homepage.

Gearbox problems

Since building FL 16 my Guzzi gearbox has always been very “clunky”. Selecting first gear is always problematical as is going down through the box from 3rd to 2nd and 2nd to 1st. The only way to get anything like a smooth! change going down through the gears is to blip the throttle and hope I get th...

Dear All A belated thank you to Phill and Hilary for such a well organised event. Anne and myself thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and are eternally grateful to Alan and Nicki for transporting FL 16 to the venue for us as following my recent surgery on my knee there was no way I could have driven the ...

Re: Trikings to the Isle of Wight 2011

Hi Dave Sorry you could not host the IOW visit; many thanks however for trying to get us to meet up in 2011. As it turns out I now need to be in hospital on 8 September to have more skin cancer bits removed so would be doubtful for the trip after all. Perhaps we can try again somewhere in the UK in ...

Re: Technical Section access

Hi Tim

Many thanks for sorting out my technical access. Everything is working fine now. Can I take this opportunity for thanking you for all your hard work and I should add that I think that we are getting a great deal for our £10.00. Well done.

Re: Technical Section access

Hi

I also cannot access the technical section although I have paid my £10 fee. Could be I am being incompetent. When I access the web site the home page shows a "members" button but when I click on it nothing happens.
