Well not too much to report other than I rode the Atlas over to the ILOC AGM on Sunday. It was a bright but cold day. Zipping through the Cotswold backroads put the Atlas in its element and everything was good with the world.
The meeting was well attended with a lot of interesting bikes on display. So often you just see standard or restored Laverda’s these days but the variety and innovation on display was heartening. I even got to chat to Phil Todd who showed interest in the Atlas (tho’ slight dismay at the knackered chain and sprockets it is running…).

I didn’t come away empty handed either as I picked up a foam air filter for my RGS or RGA. I already use one of these and they don’t wear out (unless you clean them with an spray can cleaner) so should be a useful investment.
Disappointment did greet the start of the week when the Atlas failed to start after the Easter layoff. The battery seemed to have been hit by a combination of cold mornings and not being started for four days. This whole starting issue is getting to me….
