Friday 1st September 2017

Returned home to find two items had arrived, the sat nav cable, and the GPS tracker. Briefly checked the wiring on the sat nav lead and it worked. Will hard wire it tomorrow ( Saturday ) will have to have a play with the the GPS Tracker.

Doooh - spent a while grinding off the recently purchased side stand, only to find I have ordered the wrong one. GRRRRR. Most of the day was taken up getting Matts Fiesta MoT'd.

Sunday 3rd September 2017

finished the wiring on the sprint- power pack for the GPS is hidden away from view- tested and works fine. 

Built and used a new GoPro chin mount on the cheap Spada helmet. Result below. 

Monday 4th September 2017

the 2nd sidestand turned up - what a waste of money I have ordered yet another stand that does not fit. GRRRR.

Thursday 7th September 2017

Started to charge all the kit for the BSA National Show - tomorrow - the little Fiesta proves its metal - and gets me 90 miles west. 

Friday 8th September 2017

Loaded up the B175 on to the Erde trailer, and nervously towed it up to Nottingham - rode on the ride out, and generally spent the weekend at the National Site in trowell in Nottingham.  See the video below

Spent the day in the show field. Rode the bike round the arena.

Sunday 10th September 2017

Almost as soon as I had returned from Nottingham I set to modifying the Kawasaki side stand, unfortunately due to smaller fingers in my lift I could not locate my 10mm drill to complete the work. Once located I shall finish this work.

Tuesday 12th September 2017

Fitted the side stand to the B175, took a bit of fettling, but now can stand the bike on its own. Also changed the bolt on the rear wheel bracket to Nyloc Metric. Have also fitted the cone to BSA number 3. A degree of success. If the rain holds off I shall be going to bike night.
