    We took the V10 Sport and were a bit disappointed when about 15 miles before we got there the exhaust cross over fractured, made it a bit noisy but didn't stop us. (Just asked Mistral if they'll give me a discount on a replacement........yes I know)

    It's a good day out, everything there from a Munch Mammoth to early bikes that were just that, a bicycle with a little motor attached, many guzzisti there for a chat too. (Thanks for the 100th anniversary sticker.)

    Eventually it was time to go and we went back to the now very noisy V10, I put it in gear and...... the gear change ball joint sheared off.

    Called the AA, got a ride home truck booked for about 3 hours later, never breakdown on a Sunday by the coast.

    Sammy went past and we had a chat, he had a look at the problem and agreed there was no way to bodge it for a 100 mile ride home.

    He went past again about an hour later and said, oh no you're still here, bring it over to the workshop, I'm sure I can fix it.

    And he did, he removed the sheared ball joint, fitted a new one, got the old thread out of the gear lever and put in a new socket screw.

    We are both very grateful to Sammy for saving our day out and will certainly be visiting again, with 400+ bikes there's plenty to see and we now know what a great owner the museum has.

    That is a top fella. The actual legend Sammy Miller did all that for you. It just confirms everything I have read about him.
