Got a call from the dealer today - my new 'Wing will be ready for collection on 16 November!
Let's hope the weather is dry when I go fetch!

One day down another 10 to go Smile

As a distraction about your "Suzuki GT 250 RamAir". I used to have a GT250 X7, never heard of a RamAir. Whats that?

If you check out 1973 year code K on the gkweb page it gives a description. the ozebook jpg is a better pic - copy and paste the links

I think the X7 was a newer version.

I see, the RamAir was forced air cooling for the cylinders. Yes, the X7 was a later model... I can still remember fitting micron 'rattlers', K&N cone filters and jetting the carbs Smile Then sometime later whipping the crank out for a complete rebuild Sad

Them were the days :D

Woohoo!
Yep all on track - got the reg no and everything covered. Will ride to Farnham on Saturday morning on the GS and ride back home on the Wing - 80 mile round trip - haven't checked the weather, don't suppose I'll notice it!

Dear wife has plans for the afternoon so will probably have to wait until Sunday before I can do some more miles.

I'll put a piccie up soon as I can

Looks like it's 50/50 for rain tomorrow - but it won't dampen my enthusiasm!

Thanks guys'n'gals. Shopping is done so I should get a few miles in tomorrow. Forecast is good.
I was advised to keep things steady for the first 600miles, then I can open her up! 45 down, 555 to go!

I was informed by Honda when I asked about running her in,

Quote "it's a Honda" (why do you want to run it in - just ride it!!!

Fair enough and that's exactly what I did. (Rode like I stole it). Laughing affraid
