Desolate airfields seem to be a constant theme over the years, Watton, West Raynham, (sunny?) Snetterton...



Same here, but including west country favourites like Colerne, Wroughton, Hullavington, Keevil, and others like Gaydon, Darley Moor, Croft and Bassingbourne and the bizzare Carnaby raceway!

Went to Watton in the '90s, single venue stage rallying!

(and yes, I think I remember an RD400......)

The 70's would have been the two-stroke years...

Famos frame, fitted with reverse cylinder Garelli engine. Lovely old thing, needs a bit of work to make perfect, great project. Always creates a lot of interest when it’s out in public....

Steve,
He is indeed that man...

I think I first met Bob at some desolate disused airfield in the west country in '77 or '78....or possibly an '83 pre season test day.........last saw him at a desolate disused airfield in Norfolk called Snetterton at the 4 hour Endurance race meeting in 2015 where he was riding the Classic track days sessions!

On behalf of a friend, how do you work out the different rear drives for a BMW, they are all 35/something, he`s running 12" wheels but seems to be overgeared, thanks for any advice.
