    Ive got a 150meter gravel drive and one blip of the throttle and it left a 5" deep furrow !

    Hopefully the temps will be up by the weekend

    I used to ride on snowpack when I was about 15. I always ended up with the bike wedged under a car or something and me left sitting in the middle of the street. Be patient, be careful.

    Quick update

    My V7 powered V65TT has being a 99% success , the carb fed stone engine is stunning, lovely and torquey with more power than the TT tyres can handle in the wet :)

    Comparing it to one of the V7II Demo bikes at work show how restricted the factory setup is. Carbs are the way forward for me!

    Had two niggles, one the modern rev counter looked awfull and I really wanted my lovely LM1 0-8000 veglia back and two the alternator mounted ignition sensor fowled the alternator cover and needed a spacer. This spacer seemed to make the Ducati alternator vacuum up every spec of dust and muck from the road so.......

    I fitted a v50 Monza cam shaft, front cover , tacho drive and a DYNA S igniton kit.. Results are amazing, torque is lower down the rev range and it pulls clean to 7000 rpm in any gear. Timing is old school easy now and the engine now looks factory as the alternator cover fits perfectly

    Pics for you enjoyment :)

    Done nearly 1000 miles with the monza cam fitted, oil lovely and clean, no debris in the filters and a very happy V7TT
