Continuing travelog of Henry
Flew down to Christchurch to visit with Henry before he is officially "on road tested". Great to finally get to have a hands on experience, check out what the colour really is like, are the decals fitting etc etc.
Was allowed a brief run around the block (was quite wet on the roads and missus didnt want him muddied up yet !!)
So very different to anything else i have driven !!! Not having had motorbikes or the like. Quaife box is loud, I am advised to run it in for 1000 miles and if not quietened down by then would look at possible replacement.Cant really be too objective, as quite overawed by the shear awesomeness of everything and the need for significant ear protection from the cold !!!
A couple of pix below, better description of first drive when Henry gets to Auckland and hopefully drier roads.
Found reverse and managed to get outside, comments on lack of turning circle spring immediately to mind!
As can be seen, Henry is waiting in a car restoration facility which contained lots of very interesting classic vehicles being totally restored
