The earth (wire) is a moving.

Well chaps, looks as though I might be on to something here...got to go and fit a new earth wire from the headlight and there may be a problem with the bulb....be right back....

Er, ok, sorry, back now, got a bit lost between here and the steading...One of the things I had to do was fit a new earth wire from the light. The present one is hooked up to the handlebar clamp, so the new one now goes to the same place as the earth from the battery. I took the whole headlight unit to Jim and he connected it to this bike, a very nice silver Triumph. The good news is it works fine on his bike, so it follows that the bad news is there's nothing wrong with the bulb or bulb holder. Now while all this seems to be a huge problem and some of you are starting to think I should just spend a heap of money and get everything renewed, it's just one little hitch with a 40 year old motorcycle. I ain't getting stroppy or owt but I have to defend Cubbie! Yes, I do get a bit grumpy thinking about it, but then I look back at the photos of our achievements so far, and d'you know what, it is simply amazing. Well, tis to me. When you consider that it is pretty much unrestored and cared for by a complete mechanical novice, then getting it to the most northerly point in the UK and the highest church in the UK and the highest village in Scotland and around the Isle of Sky, not to mention a week tackling every hill in Yorkshire and the most southerly counties in Scotland is quite good going. There. Do I have to shout anymore? Sorry, but when people pick on Cubbie it annoys me, and when I get annoyed...oh boy....you don't wanna see that! Hehehe. So who was it who left that comment....
