You won't like it, you know, you'll miss the smell of the 2-smoke and all that comforting ring-ding-ding!

Will we still see the "old girl" around or has she been retired?

Dont worry, the "old girl" is still going strong. The new owner had it out for 5 hours a few Sundays back and said he was deaf Mon and Tue. well I did tell him to wear muffs. Philip

Nice to see that no matter how posh you get, you still talk to us mere plebs. After the heated handlebar grips on the craft, I suppose that you'll be wanting a coffee machine is next. Looking foward to the Tralee Easter Hover-in.

David, I've attached pic of control layout, Mark 1 version, Both engines are stared from right hand switchgear, heated grips are operated by the light switch, also GPS mount is on its second craft. Eagle eyed Bryan will probably spot a few more mods. Its got one of my new stickers too.
Jon, come to Ireland anytime and we will give you a spin on what is probably Europe's most westerly hover. Philip

people will start to arrive on Good friday afternoon. We will be there until Monday. 6 craft expected. Phill has checked out 5 runs for us. Should be a busy weekend. Give either Phill or myself a ring for the satnav address. Looking forward to seeing you there.
