Static caravans a la trailer park but they are not lived in year round, rented to holiday makers in the summer months.

That caravan looks nice.  I will show Gretchen.

Hunting around for rules, etc in the British websites brings up some interesting stuff, like this talented and brave lady www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1126205/Becci-Ellis-achieves-incredible-motorbike-record-264mph-html

That speed puts her among the fastest of all time on the airport mile.

All sorts of projects.  Rose has a big list.  An addition to the shed is my current one.  The building code gives a maximum size for a shed without a permit.  That has been built.  Nothing in the building code prohibits an addition.

Getting lots of sleep is the other big goal.

Look close to the first part of the Beci Ellis link, see the guy on the right who rides around inside his wheel.

The Pendine rules got here today.  They are SCTA based so I built the bike using DLRA 2105 rules and the motorcycle rule changes listed on the SCTA website.  The tire classaifcation was the hard part.  I could not find and records and they are probably over 200 mph for the modern bike 1000 cc class.  The v-rated ones I have on are good for 150 mph.  That surely is lower than the class record but faster than the bike can go.  Hopefully it is OK.

Care has been taken to build the bike to be eligible in as many classes as possible.  It is legal for all sorts of modified partial streamliner classes and with the tail, many special construction partial streamliner ones, too.  The LSR rules for the various organizations are not very different from each other.

The shed Rose and her friends built is great.  It gives me a place to work on the bikes.  The problem is the lack of room for the salt flats bike, the street bike, Gretchen's bike, my modern dirt bike,and the vintage desert bike.  It is time to make an annex for storage.  The boat and its trailer will go in there along with a few of the bikes.  Part of the footings are done.  I do a little bit of work on on it every day.

Mike, I have been out of the state for a few weeks and I missed the show.  Some folks say it is one of the best shows on the west coast.  There was talk about having me enter the Triumph in the show.  It certainly fits the weird home built bike theme.  The bike is always apart during the show and it never gets entered.

The trip I was on was fairly complex with lots of places I had to be at certain times.  Concerns about climate change made me try to do it all by feets and public transportation with no driving.  It worked OK except for the 6.5 hour trip on a Honolulu city bus to get where I was not planning to go.  It would have been a 30 minute ride I woulda drove.  About eight days were aboard a navy ship and they let me take pictures of the engine room, etc.  Some pictures will be posted in a few days after I get rested and organized.

Looking forward to your story.   :cheers:

     +1 on looking forward to your story and pics when you get the chance Bo. It's been 47 years since I last stopped by Pearl.

     Do the uniforms still fit Mike?  :evil:  Over 30 years ago I tried to get into my jumper and got stuck 1/2 way, had to holler for the kids to pull it back off.  :oops:  Hat still fits  :-D

An ocilloscope in my experience was a big instrument in a cabinet on rollers.  My middle son sent me this picture.  The scope is hooked up to his Bonneville and it is displaying secondary waveforms.  Now the scopes are small enough to hold in the hand.  He is doing well in the automotive technology class at Saddleback.  Already he knows more than I ever will about lots of things.

WW;

 That looks like the same display that I used to see on an old Bendix ignition analyzer that I bought in an aircraft salvage yard 50 years ago. No comparison on size & weight, though.  :-D

The bike got hung up in shipping somewhere near Panama.  Fortunately it was shipped early and it probably might hopefully make it to Pendine on time.  A video from a meet a couple of years ago.www.youtube.com/watch?v=buJLKh26W9M

Greetings from atop the Eiffel Tower.  Team Go Dog Go is heavily involved in prerace training and conditioning.  It is tough but sacrifices must be made.
