5th European Intruder Convention - Belgium 2014

Post  Creamytash on Sun 01 Jun 2014, 08:41

Hello everyone, yes I know I dropped out of sight for a while - mainly due to work pressures and a chest infection, but also been having bother getting the propshaft sorted for this trilke.

I had the first original one made up and the guy didn't do as good a job as he could have done which used one Suzuki drive shaft. I then obtained another one from the U.S. along with a new u/j for the gearbox end(£269.00 at Suzi maindealers) £54.from U.S. I took the new drivesahft to a professional drive shaft manufacturing company along with the original one as a pattern, which then took a week to get it back. I got it back on the Friday as they closed for a weeks holidays. When I fitted the shaft to the trike the shoulders of the 'Hardy Spicer' at the diff end was impacting on the flange and would not allow the shaft to rotate ie - locking up the drive train. The company open again this Monday and I will get Sue to drop it in to them having fully briefed her on the problem and marked the points with Tipex. I expect that will also take the arse out of this week to get it back - if indeed they are able to modify or machine the problem out. To say I was disappointed would be an understatemant.
Meanwhile I have wired in the feed for a TomTom Rider 2 and fitted and wired in a waterproof double USB charger point under the pillion position to charge phones etc - Sue's department as co-pilot.

I am feeling some big pangs of anxiety about 'will I have this propshaft sorted in time for Belgium'.

To add to the problem - DVLA lost my V5 and supporting paperwork that I sent to alter the classification from Bike to Trike and I have had all of that to sort out ie; apply for new V5 - wait for it to arrive, then re-submitt the paperwork for change of classification - a huge ball ache.

Question:
What would peoples feelings be on ' if I can't get all this sorted in time - me and Sue turning up in a car'. Sorry to swear and use a dirty word on this forum, the alternative would be I loose what I have laid out on digs in Dover, Ferry Crossing, and the weekend at the site.
I only ask so as to know where I stand with regard to a 'fallback position' in the worst case.

Tried the throw over panniers under the seat cowl today and although they lift it very slightly
at the back they were solid and going no where, so happy days. 4000 miles service next saturday
and then we are ready to go. Only 8 more working days!  dance

I'm taking 150 euros and use me card for fuel. If it's like France a lot of petrol stations have no one at them so you have to use your card. Bit of advice go and tell your bank your going abroad as they will stop your card for unusual use. My bank (Lloyds) charged £1 every time I used me card in France but it didn't add that much to the bill. See you there.

Alex that's about 9 wanks per day not including tonight .....not sure if that's healthy for you.

Also I check out the long term weather and it looks good for now, so are you just trying to make excuses for wearing your mankini ?

Last I heard we had 33 bikes going to Belgium.  dance  We are going to get some that don't make it but that is still a lot of bikes.
Are we going to split into smaller groups for the journey? I have just got back from a ride to Germany, and even though there was only 7 in our group we had quite a wait from the first to last people filling up at each stop.

Anyone have experience of so many bikes all traveling in convoy like this? We get many more on the RTTW meets but we aren't all stopping at the same time!

Engine guards have arrived so hope to get them fitted before the trip.

if you look on the Camping web site it gives a sat nav longitude and latitude sorts the route right out but i think there is good signage from the the town (well what i saw on google street view that is  Very Happy )
