18 April-23 April 2016: out of hybernation

ready for the start-up
ready for the start-up

My son Allen came over, and we moved Mini out of the corner into her place in the garage.

Yes!
Yes!

After blowing out around the plugs, we removed them, and brought up oil pressure on the starter.

Checked wheel torques, tyre pressures, and put some oil in the dashpots.

We rolled her out into the driveway, and then started her.  Ran until she could idle without the choke.

She does not like these temps – 7C – and even after a trip around the block, the coolant stayed at 65C.

Allen brought down the bikes and we are ready for summer!

ready!
ready!
