    Thank you for that rather late info!!!! LOL, found that out first time I turned to the right!!!

    I have just been told that I am to ride this Vimy at the head of the Veterans ( or Warriors Day )Parade at the Exibition in Toronto. it is one of the largest Veterans Parades in Canada, the problem is, that we have to store the bike in a place I cannot ride it as we are going through a long and Difficault process to have this bike accepted in Canada, once we get 1 done the rest will be easy.
    But that means I get very little time on it,and as it idles at about 20kms I really have to get a feel for the very stiff clutch lever.
    The differance between going slowly and stalling is only about 1/4 of an inch movement, very differant that my old BSAs and the Matchless I owned.

    After Saturday I will post some photos of the Change of Command Parade, with us in our 4 CMR uniforms and the bike

    I grew up in town where the Douglas Factory was, Kingswood near Bristol.

    The factory was still there with its asbestos roof still camouflaged painted from WW2 use, but I believe it may have come down recently.

    Thats too bad, I would have loved to see a photo of it before it came down.

    Thank you
