Mark, great to hear you will get your No9 sorted.
Never ridden other bikes apart from my 30/35, but have been just offered one on a RC30 after it passes it´s MOT... Reading your impressions on Paul´s RC make me think it will be worth a go. Only downside is I am quite happy with what I have, don´t want to get hooked to a bike I can´t afford...:(

Please drop me a line if you finally book a TD in Spain

Absolutely - i am booked for Jerez with No Limits on the 30th-2nd Dec (I think - end of Nov anyways ) I am not convinced that I want to be taking the risks and mingling so much due to the Covid but we'll see..

RC30 wise - you'll love it. Such a cool thing to ride and makes the same noises (albeit a deeper tone) and with such wonderful torque.

I did look at some bike prices and realised that to do justice to an RC30 would take more cash than I have right now! It' was a great experience though and one that I can rely on to remind me that I really do love to ride bikes!

In that list of owned/borrowed bikes for track duties is more than the bikes ive owned since 1998. :o
Better getting the nc fixed as you can't keep going around saying i own an nc30 but it's a tad temperamental, so spend on it, ride it, enjoy it and then when money allows again go and get something with a bit more oomph if it still tickles yer fancy

Woo - Hoo, good to hear good old Number 9 is comming back to the world of the Living.

Give me a shout if you are ever heading over to the Vaterland Mark, it is a cracking ride from our place to the Nürburgring through the Eifel National Park ;) bighug

P.S. Video from the Cadwell weekend when your gearbox got stuck in 3rd https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsXljkNo8s&t=5s

That video, dubious music aside, was great :)

Indeed - the moto is coming on lovely - it has been stripped to the frame and we're looking at the consumables needed -bearings etc.

The chap who is delivering on the rebuild for me - He is Twenty 20 Customs on the facebook.

Some pics on there that I'll try to get off and in here.

Ref a road trip - well..it's going to be trackbike I reckon. It may be that I'll be acquiring something road bike related next year and so we'll be on it mate. I want to get out and do a few long weekends on the bike - I miss the riding

Sounds good to me. Just give me enough heads up so I have enough time to stock up on Bratwurst and get the beer/Schnaps properly cold :grin:

Nearly done....

The bike runs - it is clean and lovely. You can view the pics on Twenty 20 customs on facebook.

I'll get it back, get it dyno'd and get my arse onto a race track!
