Jim showed us how to open the clam on the noble. Scarily easily - might want to put some torx bolts in there !

By no means. I said "let's go and get some breakfast." Everyone concurred.
I get in my car but there is no sign of anyone else getting in theirs. Odd.

Then I discover that Jim is doing his impromptu demo... :blink:
They were all over it like wasps round a jam jar.
I had to prise them away or we would have been late getting to the cafe!

Btw, thanks guys for stopping and retrieving my (very second hand!) zoom camera lens. :sad:
Replacement ordered and should be with me on Wednesday.
So if anyone hoped it's demise might prevent any future 'candid' pics, fat chance!
:laughing

Ha, sweet photos.
You’ll be pleased to know nothing fell off of or broke on the noble, unlike someone’s Lens :-).

Great morning, I’ll include a few I took later onto this thread.

Great photos and I'm chuckling at the comments. Unfortunately, I broke TRD1. Today was it's last time on the road for a while until I can get it to Patrick's to open up the engine. So might as well take this opportunity to explore my recently purchased MK1 supercharger. Andy

Far from it, the Noble was quite the machine! I just managed to distract them all with something shiny for a few seconds ;)

Here are a few I took earlier, be kind as it's my new camera's first outing so still lots to learn and play with. Take particular notice of TLF's engine lid at the end of the military road ;) Looks to have been some of that camera lens's final moments :bye:

Ouch! What a bummer. :shocked:
Seemed OK when you left the cafe.
What has let go?

You're just a plagiarist. :cheeky: Copying the shot I had taken 5 minutes earlier... :rolleyes:

I was in two minds whether to come given the little man usually wakes us up earlier than KR kick-off. - but had a guy come down and buy the rev5 tubby so couldn't have made it anyway. Looks a good turn-out and sorry to have missed it.

I guess that's a pretty good reason. :)

Would have been good to see you. You haven't done a KR for far too long.
A shame you couldn't make it though. You missed the best one so far this year.

YHPM.
