The off road show at Telford today. Off I set, in the van, get to Telford by around eleven o'clock. There was over a mile of cars queuing for the show. I had only travelled two hundred yards in half an hour, so I turned around and went home. 

Had a cuppa, put on my leather strides and jumped on the MZ. Stopped for petrol just outside Telford and the bike didn't want to start. Did a bit of plug gap wiggling and away it went, but it felt, and sounded as though it was running weak. 

Met up with Ian and Scrote, got the bits I wanted for the B33, and a few other things besides. Threw the MZ in the back of Ian's van. 

Took the carb off when I got home and boiled it in washing powder. That'll teach it.
