Mostly good weather, gentle green lanes, quiet roads, good food you know the sort of thing.
Ferry Portsmouth to St Malo than about 60-70 miles to our base for the week.
All three XTs reliable first kick starters hot or cold. OK sometimes two kicks.
Mine used to be a bastard to start when hot, rebuilt the carb before this trip and lowered the needle one notch to where it should be anyway, I suspect earlier owner had raised it for some reason...
Mine conked out in the rain on the way home up the A3 in the rain. The little "boot" on the HT lead that keeps water out of the plug cap was missing. WD40 and a bit of gaffer tape to the rescue :-)
Where to next year? The annual Combres rally looks promising.
