Yep, thanks to Griff and AP. Just hope he didn't feel pressured into it after we were mourning the loss of AP activity on here. Certainly for myself - and I suspect a few others - seeing them pop in here from time to time would mean more than the raffle prize, welcome though it certainly is.

Big smile

Ooh an Xmas draw ! 
Hopefully the internet on the drilling rig I’m heading out to for Xmas and probably new year ( I have been stitched up btw)  is good enough to see the draw .  

Good luck to all

I agree,   but they are so busy! 
I check in usually twice a day, but I don't post that often as I don't have the excellent knowledge you all have on here.
I hopefully start putting the Ape back together in the new year from a new frame up rebuild, so I will  probably asking for loads of advice/help once i start!! Thumbs Up
on my licence it says "tear down the dotted line" so I DO!

Re Ap don’t forget that Griff is now the main workhorse there as Lewis  and Al are no longer there.  

Premium membership is technically suspended as part of membership was a section of the forum supported by AP for technical questions etc.   As that stopped happening it seemed unfair to offer it. 

I can link u to the join page as long as your happy to join on the basis I mentioned above.

twinfan I did this a couple f years ago

I found that 90% of the bike went back together in about 10% of the rebuild time  you think wow this is easy then the last 10% took 90% of the time 

I would use a white marker for every bolt you torque up so that a quick visual can see what is done .. something I didn’t think about till after .

Although I did have labels on stuff that had been put together finger tight 

In fact I will be doing it again next year as I will slowly piece the Mille back together again after I broke it up 3 months after the rebuild

Yes, Lewis and al both moved on let’s say. 
Griff is main spanner monkey with 1 other and Taz does the admin.

Sorry to hear that.

The Main dealer nearest to me now only has one person I know now apart from the boss.

Used to know loads of them but they all left for various reasons

I didn't know about Lewis and Al, no wonder Griff is run off his feet . He must be struggling to keep up or taking in much less work.

Seems a shame as they appeared to be such a good team but it sounds like there is a little more to it.

Oh well, it happens. Let's hope Griff can find some good help, it's never easy finding good staff, one in 5 if you're lucky in my experience.

Woods,I went in for an Mot and found I only know Andrew the owner and Alan in the stores.  The rest of the guys have had enough and walked for various reasons I'm told.

A couple of the tec's went and started up an independent shop in Ruthin which is doing very well as lots of Woods customers went with the people they know and trust.  Lots cheaper as well I believe.
