Re: TET question

There's loads on youTube so you can watch others do it...'Wiltshire Byways' has put up a lot of the South West and Wales.

Re: possible a2 changes to cc

I turned 17 in 1977. One guy I know took his test on his 17th birthday, and was out on a Norton Commando the next day. 750 or 850? Nah, one with an engine fitted with a 950 sidecar cross kit!
