The DVLA authorised the WR to be roadworthy last week so when I got home on Friday I fired her up and blasted out on her first (legal) ride.

It was going well until the sun came down and the throttle stuck 3/4 open.  Got home easily enough just using the kill switch to regulate the speed.

Saturday wasn't quite so smooth.  The engine timing plug fell out.

Nothing a dive into the nearest pub can't sort.

But then 200 yards later a very odd shaking started coming from the engine.  The cavalry arrived.

Diagnosis:  the central clutch nut had wiggled off and embedded itself in the primary practically pulling the engine and gearbox off their mounts.

To be continued...
