Talking Greetings

Ay up I am rhiannon, currently a trainee mechanic at bromsgrove college.

One of the techs put me on to this site (thanks Ray) as he is currently building a trike and knows i am interested (how many times have i been late cos chatting to the tech guy )

Looking to build my own trike.. not comfortable on 2 wheels. Was thinking auto but on a very tight budget. Have the use of a Kat 650 engine just trying to find out the problem with it (was smoking before being pulled from the bike).

Right i best get back to my revision as i have transmission exams tomorrow.

Laters.

I have noticed this fact, but you do a hell of a lot of work for them too.
