Over on the Isle of Wight

Just returned from a great weekend again at the annual Isle of Wight Triumph Camping Weekend at Appuldurcombe camping and caravan park. As usual Graham and Angela organised a brilliant event, with runs out to Amazon World Zoo, Calborne Water Mill and lunch at the Wight Mouse Pub. Evening Entertainment on the Saturday included the excellent Darek Sandy (Reggae) and a Magician. On the Sunday our area did well again in the quiz, coming 2nd (although we had won it the previous 2 years).

Only one little problem for me, the clutch on the GT6 started slipping intermittently on the drive down to the Island and then on the various runs. So it looks  like I need to do a clutch change sometime in the next couple of weeks as I'll need a decent clutch for the Triumph Marque Day at Prescott. I fitted the last clutch back in 1988 and it's done a good 75,000 miles so has lasted pretty well. It was a genuine Borg & Beck one though so I'll certainly be looking to see if I can find another genuine one to install as the extra cost more than outweighs the hassle of changing out a cheap one that may not last anywhere near as long.
