Nice one Richard! I too am having problems with the diet! On the other hand I recommissioned the Rotax Goldie and I'm enjoying riding that around, and I have plans to build another A10 like the red one I built last year, only green, or maybe blue!

  *bright idea* start with two sets of tinware and paint one blue and one green and take turns swapping the red ones out- could save lots of time and expense  *beer*  *bright idea*

 Richard I'm assuming you've dropped 33lbs before you added the 8lb ?
  I've dropped about 8kg (~17.6lb) by only eating every couple of days when the worms complain-  more *beer* trouble is my pants/ duds/ trousers/ jeans now slide down  *eek*
 But resolution-wise, I don't resolute but if I  make it to the end of the day I'm happy..... there's always the next
 
Started building in about 1977/8 a on average '52 A10 -built from bits 'n pieces never resto intended -maybe 'personalised'
Have a '74 850T Moto Guzzi since '92-best thing I ever bought doesn't need a kickstart 'cos it bump starts sooooooooo(mostly) easy

G'day fellas.
Well last years NYRes has now well into it's second year and nothing has been done! Life and low income $ gets in the road.
Hay duTch, I had to put a few more holes in my belts since I lost weight through Diabetes. Now not eating sugar and cutting back on wheat products I feel great. If you don't eat you don't shit, if you don't shit you die!
Cheers

That's right Richard, but the Cafe is a little harder to kick over! For every action there's an equal and opposite reaction.
When I raced people would ask why I replaced everything with alloy instead of just loosing a few pounds off my beer belly. Sacrilege!
