Title: finally passed my test and legal to ride :)
Post by: chicago on 14.09. 2012 00:22
hi fella's. not been on for a while but thought i'd let you all know that i have finally passed my bike test, *beer* *beer* ;D ;D *clap* *contract*, was a bit of a nightmare, failed mod 1 then re-took and passed, failed mod 2 then re-took and passed with  only 2 minor faults and praise from the dsa test guy,
what a relief. can now start getting my bike sorted and then i'm on the road  *beer* *yeah*.
all the best, chicago

Good to hear you've passed! You'll enjoy riding a BSA. Go careful when using hand signals. I often deliberately ride past my right hand turn, pull in then U turn when road is clear. Much safer.

Well done Chicago

Don't know how those of us who took our test in days long gone would fare with today's procedure.
I'm consistently getting left side lug burn about my over use of indicators, but I stick to the words of my old driving instructor " they're directions indicators laddie not right of way indicators"

Good on yea Chicago, a bit more incentive to get it back together, (why'd you pull it down, I forget?) Just don't get busted on a test ride taking it out the driveway to the road to do a u-ey
 Cheers duTch

cheer's dutch, i had an oil leek from head gasket so i put new one on, but i thought while i had the head off i'd cheeck the pistons and barrels, and on checking the rings i found one off the oil scraper ring's had a chip out of it, so changed the oil scraper rings, slamed it all back together and now wont start *problem* i think i might of fried the magneto, i hope not, i'm going to post a new thread about it to get some opinion's. all the best guys, chicago
