    Steve its back and running after a new ECU, Rode to work this morning,old ECU went back to the factory for investigation,

    My theory the Fuel pump relay got wet (rust stains when removed) then failed ( PADS 5 Diagnostics), This caused a fault current in the ECU which failed.

    Llandovery spring 2016 rally

    At the Oop Nord Rally we were wondering where to go next Spring.
    Llandovery was mentioned.
    If you wish, I would be pleased to create my own form of chaos from this crazy notion, and fix it.
    What would you have me do, my Lords?
    AndyB

    Update as at 19 Jan 2016 .

    Rally dates are confirmed as Fri 15 April to Sun 17 April 2016.

    Campsite is our old favourire Erwlon http://www.erwlon.co.uk/ Price TBD later. Elec hookups available for weak people.

    The Bluebell pub is now an "Italian" restaurant run by asians; the beerkeeping is poor.
    My suggested alternative is the Kings Head, Main Square, Llandovery SA200AB Tel: 01550 720393 http://www.kingsheadllandovery.co.uk/
    Landlord Paul is a Laverda man and most sympathetic to our needs. The food is excellent as is the selection of Ales.
    He has a back room for us for Sat eve: his chef would like some idea of what we would like, but I'll ask you all nearer the date.
    The menu is here http://www.kingsheadllandovery.co.uk/bar-menu/ and here http://www.kingsheadllandovery.co.uk/a-la-carte-menu/

    As for breakfasts, yes the West End cafe is always good but I will also recommend the Penygawse Victorian Tea Rooms (12 High St ) for a superb breakfast. As the soft Northern Jessies will be well aware, the Penygawse is also a good B&B http://www.penygawse.co.uk/

    The latest idea for Sat breakfast is to use The Owl's Nest, about half a mile up the road from The West End Cafe http://www.bikersarewelcome.com/owls...ner-i1317.html I'll contact the proprietors, if you wish.

    Those who believe they will attend are the following 26 chaps and chapesses. I hope we will get some reps from The Futura Forum: I'm sure we will make them more than welcome.
