Gordon and I put everything back together, switched bikes, and went fo a 35 or so mile test ride. Gordon pointed out that the motor's refusal to idle down after it got warm was perhaps just due to a lack of free play in the throttle cable and not an air leak or ignition advance problem. But, investigating that would have to wait as Sunday was the Steve Rossi Tiddler Tour.

There were three R-27 BMWs and a MZ 125 from Germany. And a Bultaco Alpina and Metrala in addition to Rich's Ossa from Spain.
