  • A nice ride out

    A nice ride out this morning before the rain returns. The desert scrambler seems at home in the wet and mud. The intermediate gears which I sourced for Geoff Nunn to fit are just perfect and the engine pulls like a train. The front could be a little softer as my head wobbles a bit compared to the soft springs I have on the Ranger.

    Hi Ian

    Fabulous. Slowly (too slowly) that's what I am trying to achieve with my Griffon.
    Please could you post a close up of the stand and how it's fitted?

    Thank you
    Martin

      Hi Martin - the fittings came standard on the later Griffon Enduro and desert scrambler, probably others as the same frame I imagine would have been used. I had a side
      stand fitted to my earlier 58D which did not have one. I think I might have a sidestand as well as I had a couple fabricated. I will sort out some more photos in the next couple of days

        Hi Tony
        Thank you for the photo and reply. Sadly, my frame does not have those brackets for a side stand.
        And it's beautifully painted so I'm not likely to do any welding to it. I'm a long way from needing a
        stand yet. Wheels and clutch are the current "projects"
        Looks like the weather is going to be a bit better this week, might get out on a motorcycle
        Cheers
        Martin

          You would not see it if you welded brackets underneath and probably more damaging to try and fit a stand elsewhere. Gary will be selling new Griffon clutches soon if your’s is worn out or you don’t have one.
          Also correct silencer

            Hi Tony

            Sorry for the delayed reply.... sun's out

            Thank you for your advice, I am in touch with Gary about fixing my clutch and I bought one
            of your silencers via Gary some time ago.

            Management says I'm on gardening duty today

            Cheers

              Sounds all good then - I have been on gardening duty for the last 3 days - off for a ride on the Ranger as the sun is out
