Duloe Daffodil dash.
« on: March 31, 2014, 01:36:43 PM »
The mopeds guys had a great ride yesterday on the daffodil dash Bedfordshire, the daffodils were even out for us this year!
That's me on my hand painted Puch MS50D cornering at terrifying speeds trying to catch chum Steve on his much modified Vesp50.  Below is riding chum Nigel on his 125cc Chinese monkey bike, not exactly a moped or autocycle/cyclemotor but all are welcome at these laid back events. Below that is a Bown autocycle , two tone finish, light rust and heavy rust, this is how a lot of the guys like them these days!

Raleigh Runabout is 20:1 mix with two stroke oil but the label on my one says 16:1 mix with standard oil.  Could be a major contributor to pollution (compared to China).

I wonder if the velociraptors put in a complaint about Bronto Botty Burps. Methane city. Highly global warming. All things are relative, mine are two stroke Vikings, I think.

A bit rich coming from a guy with two Bonds and a Gordon. Oh sorry, I forgot that none of them work so yes, pollution free Wirrel.

WirrAl not pollution free - I believe . The major factor in my non- running cars is the fact I am spending so much of my life away from them ! I am up in the foggy North East not at home in the North West - a very different place

That is the official story. Get your Geiger counter out and see if its true. Has Flight 307 turned up?

Of course I could be wrong.

Every year we get 'Sahara pollution' down in East Sussex. But at the moment there seems to be more pollution on here than anything coming from a cows bum!  :D
